Zsuzsi Csiszer - Yes-No: On the Wall in My Bedroom (2012)
“It has been more than half a year since I started the yes-no wall. The room has not been finished yet, although I am making great progress, I have already completed more than three walls. It is getting clearer and clearer that there are some things which I will not be able to answer. I have more and more questions, though. When I would write ‘no’, I wait for a while and it becomes ‘yes’ by next morning, because when I think that something is no, no, whatever happens and I say no….. but I am capable of changing. And then yes.
Therefore the procedure slows down. In a situation when I am withdrawn, I can change things, I am dreaming, I am checking how many steps I can make mentally, what nice variations I can create with a ‘yes’ answer to the very same question. Yes, still in my box, in my room, but I have opened the door and the windows. I believe that this procedure is not about loneliness. Well, of course yes, when, for a moment, I feel that I cannot do anything. However, I have learnt that this is NOT true, the only chance for me is to do this. It is good to see that I am not alone, that you keep checking my works, that I can feel that I belong somewhere.”
