Never say never is a lifelong work, where the artist has omitted the word ‘art’ from his spoken vocabulary. Each time the artist mistakenly speaks the word aloud a recording is made to mark the last time the word was spoken. This is the 13th iteration and most recent public presentation, screened as part of the exhibition Show of Talks at lAB/Artists Unlimited curated by Anna Jehle.

Never say never Never say never

A piece of discarded black tape attached itself to the sole of the artist’s shoe on the 11th September 2015, during the installation of the exhibition My Biscuit Ate Itself. Upon the realisation of the aforementioned tape incident, a conscious decision was made by the artist never to intervene in minor disputes such as these. Consequently, the shoe and the tape were left to resolve their own issues, themselves. The tape and the artist’s right shoe have now made an amicable split (126 days after they first came together), the tape left without word and was last seen in the vicinity of the artist’s foot outside of the Norma cafe on Rothenberger Strasse in Nürnberg Germany, January 14th 2016.
