We investigate how to approach a world where we see that peace is possible. In this project we invite people to commune and share in the the artwork “Do we fight for peace?”
Yoko Ono uses the inspiring words “Imagine Peace” and “War Is Over If We Want It”. Is there really a chance we have in a world in constant war? Do we as individuals have influence above the world of war and peace?
We fill the gallery space with your, our and other people’s thoughts on this topic. Without making politics of art, we intend to inspire new perspectives and to promote and expand the idea beyond the conflict premise used in massmedia today. We see it as an exercise for ourselves “from ego to beingness” where everything is possible and where the difference is the choice of every human being.
We showed this project first time in the Noisy Prayer exhibition at Galleri Vulcan in Oslo, September 2014. 30 people contributed with texts on the topic. This is an ongoing project. We will continue to commune.
Do you have any thoughts, ideas, inspirations?
How do you think we could be the difference?
As a basis for the discussion, we have this time chosen to use a video of Mooji, a spiritual leader who takes up questions of identity and struggle. Here, he discusses human identity and how conflicts arise and can be dissolved. The video is intended as inspiration, regardless of any belief system or political views.
