Matjaž Požlep (SI)


Once the field of explanation is limited to unambiguity, meaning becomes a marketable commodity. By appropriating the meaning, they are making us become an inseparable part of a web of dependencies, which is partly our own fault.
In his wish to be surrounded by the mass, the author merely offers the signifier, which through that has already become the signified of another signifier, and so on and so forth, with each decomposition of the subject's image, which is, at the same time, its creation. Once the chain is broken, only the final interpretation remains. The original meaning has long been forgotten, and the air cleared.
Interpretations are a project that frees the image of its meaning. It reminds us that in the world of (un)limited choices we always have the possibility of choosing our own interpretation, one that is not forced upon us, let alone being served to us as a commodity.
