The installation under the above title contains several possible layers of interpretation. One of them is position, with the painting White Penis ambivalently observed by a white but blind telescope (with black lenses). Another layer concerns seppuku or hara-kiri, metaphorically performing ritual male suicide – a suicide that from a European perspective seems intolerable, cruel and strong-willed. In the context of the blind telescope and the White Penis there is a certain kind of dark humour here, but this is also to some extent a polemic on the current status of the male in art. I leave the other layers, which intersect, up to the viewer.
