“I get dressed, pick up a hammer and get ready to go out and earn crust of bread. I try to show how hard it is to earn a living in a totalitarian system. I keep repeating the image of physical effort over and over again in the attempt to get inside myself and search for something I didn’t already know. I’m looking for a new challenge, a way to another life by breaking through a thick wall.
I am always meditating about my time and space. I am always breaking free, meditating my time and space, biting my nails.I’m in a box trying to live, think and earn a crust of bread and this won`t happen unless we destroy that thick wall and enter into a better life.”
