A route to Nirvana (2003)

This installation was part of M.A.I.S 5 Paradies Project that took place in Alexanderplatz in Berlin

''At the highest level of his teaching, Buddha uses hardly controllable states of mind as raw material to reach illumination. In other religions or philosophies of life, such states are seen as sins or unsocial behaviour''

Fury, envy, greed, pride, ignorance. Under these notions, beneath a silver layer of rub-off paint, one can find five liberating wisdoms. These wisdoms are the end-results of the metamorphosis of the live ''disturbing'' feelings. As such, they lead toward enlightenment.
