#VivianGreven Quotes

Vivian Greven in dialogue with Layla Leiman

›I have painted bodies for as long as I can think. The question: ›What am I?‹ has always been my driving force. I am deeply interested in the interaction of body and mind. During the painting process I gently stroke bodies into existence. Thus, I appreciate the body and try to overcome its cruel disregard in contemporary society. The body wants to be our most loyal companion but we want it to look and function like an electronic tool.‹ Vivian Greven in dialogue with Layla Leiman, 2019
