Zurich 1993
Gregory Hari does not call attention to himself. He simply is – unobtrusive yet impossible to overlook. His silent actions are narratives with a beginning, a middle and an end. Something happens. Often inspired by the artist‘s own life experiences, the ‚something‘ varies from one performance to the next. Hari may embody cultural philosopher Gerhard Johann Lischka‘s observation that the media globalisation has transformed human beings themselves into media, constantly forcing people to act out their own lives as if they were performances.
