-I like and I don’t like what this masters gave me

-what do you mean?…to much criticality?

-ya too much …of you have to contextualize ur work a bit too much everything has a narrative that u should be aware of…and what narrative? who’s?

– I know what you mean when you say loose yourself, you have to think what is important for you, what you like, what you enjoy…the rest, who gives a fuck…if you loose that, then your lost…and it’s hard to maintain

– ya but this is what the masters pushes u towards

-with all the critical stuff…but that’s the challenge

– ya but its easy to loose here

– and that’s when you begin really to think

– its a kinda of a fight

– not listening to some academic formatting

-ya…and deformatting what has been formatted

-so, take a brake if you need to

-or not be completely dominated

– yes…anyways, it’s impossible not to be critical… but then you have to find ways of enjoying this…even not being critical, is being critical towards critique

-ya but its impossible not to be dominated by certain discourses…and this is what is frustrating

– but you are formed by these same discourses..

-of course

– Whatever discourse they are…there is always a discourse

-but you want keep a distance and its different when u r making work

-what do you mean?

-sometimes u don’t wanna know too much or have to know too muchthe pressure or have to

-yes… you don’t have to.

– you do it if it gives something to you

– but you can never be sure you want to know

– yeah… that’s a choice

-coz you don’t want to be left out

-left out of what?

– left out of what you think is the thing you should know…you don’t wanna be naiveand do things naively either

– yes, but that’s an infinite circle, and then what you come to know does not give you anything but to say “i know”…but what and how do you know, is how you learn… and then there is leaning from experience…not only from books…see the leaning as part of you, you are always learning.

-ya but am talking in art profession in london just out of the uni

– ya but what do you need to learn there? how to sell yourslef?

– in a way yes…i mean depends how u approach it…but ya

-yes, I got that. but think, there is the project and the association, and that is so much more than any  of the young exiting artists are doing…it’s so much

-ya i know its great!…but am a bit torn

– you know, on the blog, I wrote something on knowledge, “kool Thing” read it !

– which blog?

-www.mirenearsanios.wordpress.com…torn between what?

-: between making work and other things that are as important for me like the association

-our project…that i find very powerful

– yes…

-and more interesting than my work

– but don’t think about it  in opposition… but listen, the work that you are doing in Beirut will contribute to your practice

-but am always afraid to loose something. and that’s not good


-my approach to the whole thing is not so clear i guess…try to get away from practiceand separating things like that

-to which whole thing?

-i kinda wanna control things in categories-yes…

– but try to think about your life as something creative…and that is precisely going against categories

– my life as a stage

-that want to keep artists  as artists, x as x…no, you are living your life…you are an actor in it…you have a body…and thoughts and feelings…and you think with all of that as well

-and cystitis

-yes, that’s when the thinking goes wrong…

-and the fucking too hard
