Artist Bio: Björn Neukom

I want to use my art as a framework for the audiences own thoughts. I don’t want to work with symbols. I don’t want to put too much narrative on stage. My wish is that the audience can fill the play or performance with their own thoughts. I want to give them an aesthetic start picture where they can project their own story on to it. I don’t want to talk about big topics, such as love and death — if the audience wants to read my art like this, they are allowed to. But it’s important for me to create worlds where each one of the audience member can connect with their own body and mind. They shouldn’t have knowledge or experience in specific themes. They shouldn’t ask themselves why this or that is going on on stage. They should enjoy, the should be amazed — they should allow themselves to dream away. My art should invite the audience to feed into their own cosmos of thoughts.
