Rafaël Rozendaal‘s art consists in simple, smart, yet obvious and depressing installations. His minimalist perspective on art emphasize that life not only is pretty much random, repetitive and simple in a chaotic way, but it also sucks ass. There’s this sequence from Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club that fits this situation: “Everything’s a copy of a copy of a copy!“.
The same kind of painful futility depicts also the artist’s haiku book. Here’s how some of the most recent of Rozendaal’s haiku’s sound like: “RR haiku 118 – writing down / whatever / comes to mind“, “RR haiku 117 – thinking about / doing sit-ups / never mind“. And one of my favorites: “RR haiku 104 – whatever i do / there is always more / to be done“.
