The question is not what you look at but what you see. Henry David Thoreau
Biography: Kerry Horne - Artist Statement: One tries to read meaning out of sometimes apparently meaningless things. It is in this leap of association - this gap - where the artist constructs the work that the viewer struggles with. It is in this void where interpretations are fostered and new ideas are stumbled upon. - Kerry Horne (Nederlands) We proberen een betekenis te zien in soms schijnbaar betekenisloze zaken. Het is vanuit deze gedachtensprong –op dit breukvlak- dat de kunstenaar zijn werk maakt waarmee de kijker worstelt. Het is in deze stilte dat interpretaties tot leven komen en waar nieuwe ideeen worden ontdekt. (Espanol) Intentamos interpretar el significadodonde algunasveces, aparentemente no tienen sentido las cosas. Esto es, en estesalto de asocicion - esta apertura - , donde elartista construye el el trabajo con el que el observador lucha. Estees, en este vaciodonde interpretaciones estan fomentando y nuevasideas se tropiezan. ( Silvia Montes Alonso : translator) (Deutsch) Immer wieder versucht man, anscheinend bedeutungslosen Dingen eine Bedeutung beizumessen. Es passiert in diesem Feld der Assoziationen - diesem Zwischenraum -, in dem der Kunstler seine Werke schafft, die dem Betrachter dann zu schaffen machen. Genau in diesem Raum entstehen Interpretationen, hier stolpert man uber neue Ideen.
