Over the last few years, Fleischer has drawn on transformation narratives to realize a series of speculative works that explore the relationship between notions such as impermanence and regeneration, immediacy and inaccessibility, growth and decay.
Alpinism is the art of climbing mountains by confronting the greatest dangers with the greatest prudence. Art is used here to mean the accomplishment of knowledge in action. You cannot always stay on the summits. You have to come down again. What is above knows what is below, what is below does not know what is above. There is an art to finding your way in the lower regions by the memory of what you have seen when you were higher up.
… or was it about silence all along
