Under the programmatic title “success is just a smile away,” German conceptual artist Andy Kassier tells the story of a self-made man driven by money and success. However, in the process Kassier over-worked himself. In spring 2019, a burnout drove him into the sea and he disappeared for half a year. Now he—and his character— are practicing self-love and self-care. He no longer lives on the fast lane. Still high above the ground, of course, he now sits on a swing in the midst of nature. “A stable job is a sign of weakness,” he once claimed. Today, he is on a path of self-discovery through yoga and meditation. With the help of alternative healing methods, he hopes to recalibrate his work-life balance. He takes time off to pause and think about things. His mirror reminds him: “Time to reflect.” Kassier lives in the here and now. Art allows him to maintain a mental equilibrium.
