“ Art does not go to sleep in the bed made for it. It would rather run away than say its own name. What it likes is to be incognito. Its best moments are when it forgets itself ”.

“What I expect from a work of art is that it surprises me, that it violates my customary valuation of things and offers me other, unexpected ones”.

Jean Dubuffet

These words offer a worthy aspiration from which to challenge the secure, lazy, benign, and complacent world of conformity. At their heart lie the expectation of being taken into new and undiscovered worlds and renewing a childhood sense of curiosity.
