No Colors, Germany, 2000

(tin relief 500x140 cm)

Black and white are not opposites. Black and white complete one another, each highlighting the other’s existence. As in life, there are many intermediary shades of grey and a world of colors between black and white. Every person is a spectrum of colors, and only freedom is the one single color that cannot be seen by the eye, but which each eye has the right to see. Everyone, of whatever color, has the right to exist in freedom. They all complete one another, forming the huge mosaic called humanity."
