15_pillow talk


An open dialogue where happiness is placed in perspective. The installation consists of several pillows on thin mattresses. If you put your head on a pillow you can hear a conversation that the two people have about happiness and the quest for it. Are we actually looking in a true way to ourselves and to the world? Do we actually have influence on our lives and our happiness? Is it not true that all of your concerns and desires disappear if you just look at what is happening right at that moment? Now? On the wall a silkscreen is placed with a quote from Nisargadatta Maharaj: 'Nothing ever goes wrong'. (photos 2-6 by Ben Nienhuis)
