Walking Away/ Coming A Way

Artist: Sudarshan Shetty
Curator: Hasan Bülent Kahraman

The human being is a searching creature. He searches for everything. And most of all himself. The aim is not to find. Searching is more important. Every search is a long road. Every search is a journey experienced on that road. We know the moment the journey began. We can look back, learn, identify. But we do not know where and how it will end. More important than this is that we do not know what we will find, where we will arrive, and what we will attain. Perhaps, the further away we are, the closer we get, and the closer we get, the further away we are. Going is setting out. Sometimes we would be coming while we are going, and sometimes we would be going while we are coming. Going is leaving what is known, and treading towards the unknown. And all unknown is hidden within the known, just as every known conceals an unknown.

The human being is destined to himself. He who searches always finds himself in the end. He is the one at the extreme limits. The travelling of the human being is a matter of space. The human being travels in space. Space is the cross section between the known and the unknown. The sky is the limit. The sky that starts where space ends is the threshold of creation. Every projection that reaches out towards the sky is the passion of the known. The ambition of the known is directed towards the unknown. The column is the desire to discover the unknown. The same feeling is also present where water begins. The depth of water is always extra-conscious. Water hinders the human being. But water is healing.

In every unknown, there is something ‘messianic’. The prophetic involves an allusion to the unknown, because the one who knows is always the prophesier. Every long road leads to the unknown, and hence to the prophetic. Reaching out to the beyond is to open up to the unknown, to the prophetic. And returning, coming back, is going along a path, passing through it.

We are searching. Because that’s the main thing: searching, and it ‘can never be found by seeking, yet only seekers find it.’
