That the self is isolated by its own identity from the totality of Life, is an immense fact affecting the species as a whole. And yet individuality has been granted such cultural value that our separation from one another and our common alienation from life are hardly ever mentioned, let alone questioned. In this exhibit, Kim Schrag, breaches the silence of tradition and habit to expose the general problem of separation and affirm that it may be just an illusion; one responsible for everything that ails us.
Fernando Llosa, 2011
