‘Power’ is a three-channel video projection relating to the idea of power – the power of history and the past, military power, the power of nature, of individuals, of institutions and the power of images that come together and spark off each other. All these forces go through time, come from the past, appear in the present and reach towards the future. It constantly talks to us and refers back to myth, calls upon our imagination and fantasies. This installation is best summed up by something Osho Rajneesh once said; ‘Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it’.
