Kiwa und das Sublime

Indrek Grigor (3-4/2010)

Indrek Grigor approaches the art of Kiwa from the Kantian concept of the sublime
We can see from Kiwa’s explanations that his aim is not conceptual, anti-human, synthetic meaninglessness, but the experience of impotence that goes with exposing human experiences. Meaninglessness in his ‘nothingologia’ is not a system for creating meaning (creating meanings that people find incomprehensible or uncontrollable), but rather it is an experience that goes over people's heads – it is high on nothing. From classical philosophy we find an inevitable parallel with Kant’s definition of das Sublime, which stands for the imperceptible in both perceptions and definitions – that is, something literally beyond comprehension, over our heads.
