100 artist statements 2004
In 2004, Wilfried released in the framework of The RRF Project another project dedicated to the “artist’s self-representation”. Differently than in 2002 ” Mirror at the Bottom” to be featured in July 2020, this time Wilfried invited 100 artists to write a textual statement about the “artist’s mission”, thus how see the artists their own position in the world. There are artists involved using different analogue and digital diciplines, and in the sum of all the collection of artists statements is a demonstration of diversity and individuality.
That has been Wilfried’s own mission as a artistic curator – always!, so the project is the manifestation of Wilfried’s mission and his own position in the world, even if he does not include his own statement in this collection.
The statements give evidence, that artists generally speak a common language, no matter of the geographic origine, the social, religeous or ethnic status, it is a demonstration of – “We Are One World”, as well as a fundamental statement against discrimination and for tolerance. The artists’ statement becomes a political statement!
The re-launch of this collection of statements is getting a particular relevance in the current times when people all over the world are going again on the streets demonstrating against racism and discrimination.
