Rhino in the room, 2023

Renoster in die kamer [Rhino in the room], 2023. Charcoal and pastel on 250gsm Fabriano, 500x700mm. Framed.


In 1911 a verbal dual took place between the British philosopher Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) and the Austrian-British philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) on the presence of a rhinoceros in the room (in the Cambridge room that was their legendary place of battle). Their argument was concerned with verification, truth, perception and difference.


My transmutation here concerns a hybrid between a rhino, an elephant and something else. What we see has a history and is only a present version; it is not always in the shape of what was before nor represents future change.
