I never even thought about whether or not they understand what I'm doing [...] the emotional reaction is all that matters, as long as there's some feeling of communication, it isn't necessary that it be understood.

Ilya and Emilia Kabakov | Labyrinth [My Mother's Album] | 1990

Labyrinth [My Mother's Album] is a large-scale installation consisting of a series of narrow corridors leading in a maze-like double spiral. The viewer enters the installation through a door and is lead through progressively shorter corridors at right angles until he or she enters a small space in the centre of the labyrinth. This room, only a square metre in size, contains bits of wood and other debris. A recording of the artist plaintively singing Russian romantic songs is audible in this room; the music can be heard faintly throughout the installation. The corridors then continue until the viewer exits the installation through another door.

I have frequently seen people become neurotic when they content themselves with inadequate or wrong answers to the questions of life. They seek position, marriage, reputation, outward success of money, and remain unhappy […] even when they have attained what they were seeking. Such people are usually confined within too narrow a spiritual horizon. Their life has not sufficient content, sufficient meaning. If they are enabled to develop into more spacious personalities, the neurosis generally disappears.

Jazz stands for freedom. It's supposed to be the voice of freedom: Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don't be a perfectionist - leave that to the classical musicians.

Gehe in die Tiefe, nicht in die Weite.

I am consistent, you are not. I am a reflection of what is in you.
You are not a reflection of what is in me.
