Kiss
Cuts

Milen
Till

by Paul Feigelfeld

Milen Till’s Kiss Cuts are actual interfaces of art history and its media with itself. They create worm holes through which layers of art intimately fold on- and into each other. The layering consists both of histories and techniques: sculpture collides with photography, painting with itself, and otherwise impossible translations emerge in a tongue only the two mouths kissing can speak and understand. This silent rapport is serialized and produces both volatile variety and strict incisions: There is something surgical about Till’s work, precise and clinical, strategic and methodical. At the same time, polygamy meets origami and while some kisses are those of lovers for life, some are fleeting and playful.
