What is truth. We live in a world that is increasingly withholding from the truth, and lying has become a normal thing. As an artist I want to make the viewer aware of what he/she sees. Is the truth the inner of the object, is the gold of the interior more valuable than the gold of the exterior? The shape of the CODEX raises questions of knowledge and truth, but the "CODEX" is obscured by the gold. "Everything of value is defenseless" quote Lucebert.
