Fathers
The second project at F13
20 August 2008 – 20 September 2008

I was watching a telly with a programme for kids about Picasso. The presenter said: ‘Father of Picasso, an art teacher, saw once his son drawing a pigeon and was so impressed that he quite art. That’s how he was proud.’

I can imagine the game of characters where you have to fill the gap and it goes like “I’m most likely to be a ….. father”.
I could say for example: “I’m most likely to be a proud father”.
But I can think about a few more qualities. I can be a crazy father, I can be a paranoid father, and I can be a relaxed father. I can be a father with 1001 faces.

The Fathers project in F13 will be in progress. The concept of being a father and relations towards him are in a constant change.
