The work So Many Reasons…, 2004, was inspired from thoughts about tolerance as a mutual process. It plays with the idea that we could create common space only if we step aside and keep it for the other. In the context of an art space, the work could be read with more references as dichotomies: domestic and public, day life banality and art, accumulating home objects and sculpturing as a process of taking out the useless parts. However, the work has to be experienced by going through the door.
