FRACTALS (SENSE OF ORDER)


For Moussa Kone drawing comes close to writing and aspects linked to the idea of "theory". The word "text" comes from the Latin verb "texere" and means "to weave". Text is a woven structure of letters and lines, like textiles are woven out of threads. It is this kind of weaving, of contextualizing, which serves as the model for this series. The artist quotes in this series arthistoric „externalized patterns“ as a repetitive background and boundary for the blank images of himself. In a quest for motion as metaphor of times, the drawings are created and reshaped in a constant interaction between the figures and their surroundings, like in a mental map.
