PRACTICE MAKES THE MASTER

2010 wood, video, 4', 16'' loop     sound is coming from behind the wall made of planks   when the spectator gets closer, through gaps between the planks he/she observes a video featuring the artist   I sit on the floor with my back against the wall; I'm throwing a tennis ball against the opposite wall and catching it again   endless repetition of one and the same meaningless action; practicing until perfection is attained   although the artist is free to choose his/her method(s) of work, he/she is bound by the limits of the artistic calling; marginalized, trapped in the narrow field of the art world   remake of the scene with Steve McQueen from the movie The Great Escape
