ARTIST STATEMENT: "I want to be like a horse I want to imagine we are running side by side until our death Remembering and walking through things Will you position your body in relation to mine, some ways, maybe sideways? I’ll become horizontal My shadow grows still in the moonlight I laughed out loud alone Please, will you repeat what you just said? Now, I’ll listen. Please tell me again. How do you imagine a horse jumping like me? Does she? Will she jump like me in the future? Probably we can sit here for a while. "
