Sire, I am from the other country
acab acab acab!

Yours acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with calm, as if they were irresistible.
Finally, you fear blood more and more. Blood and time.
acab acab acab!

Maybe there is a beast…
acab acab acab!

What I mean is, maybe it’s only us
acab acab acab!

The desire to live is a political decision. Who wants a world where the guarantee of freedom
from starvation means the risk of death from boredom?
acab acab acab!

Refuse the garbage disposal unit.
acab acab acab!

There Is No Other World. There Is Only A Better Way To Live (it is not what i am, but how i am what I am), is a series of works that challenge, question and explore complex power structures and models of resistance. The transdisciplinary projects, ranging from works on canvas and paper created out of blood, sweat and tears, video installations and printed matter draw parallels between the writings of Huey P. Newton, art works of Emory Douglas, both of the Black Panther party, and the themes of the novel Lord of the Flies, as a way of shifting and repositioning political ideology and struggle.
