We all love him. At first. For the walking wood and cardboard sculptures. Second. For the psychedelic dip-dye, hand-dye, hand-job. And then. For the poetry of jinbei. I am wearing him.

4. Ed Ruscha Rabbit, 1986
Flying from Krebber to Ruscha via Sander. For obvious reasons, I am still faithful to the brand. Although left anonymous now. But besides all personality talk, it is the moment and concept that count.

3. Collier Schorr Base Portraits/Barracks, 2005
Straight pacifism. The most admirable beings united. Rei, Raf, Collier. Nipster fashion for the pre-digital, post-digital age. Those of us you live analogue digially. In Real Life. In Real Love. On- and offline.

The Raf Sandior universe is a hermeneutic one. Like father, like son. Or like 'Fathers Fathers' and 'Abus(ive) Lang(uage)'. And as we know, this letter similitude is no coincidence. What would father say?

2. Bruce Nauman Flesh To White To Black To Flesh, 1968
3. Ed Atkins Warm, Warm, Warm Spring Mouths, 2013
4. Bruce Nauman Studies For Hologram, 1970
An exhibition of beauty that seeks international comparison. Juxtaposing the old master with the young master. Video experiments with the self (Nauman) and a 3D-modelled self (Atkins). 1968-2013. Poetic, disgusting, sentimental.
Ed Atkins | Bruce Nauman, July 7 – October 26 2014, Kunsthalle Mainz, Germany
