Emil Kjærnli

Delving into philosophy or theory seems like a path for the wise and I have never met an artist who is wise. We simply want to be seen and heard and never die. Having dabbled in carpentry before surrendering to art, I wield both the tools of construction and deconstruction. The act of shooting myself in the conceptual foot becomes an intentional unravelling, a rebellious stance against the notion that artists possess an inherent understanding of their craft. One does not need to understand everything one does.
