One morning walking around a market a stallholder was selling a deceased estate.People were ravaging through troves of boxes of someone recently passed away, getting a bargain.I noticed, this person who'd just passed,had piles of books,all in German,in amongst lots of really personal things like family photo albums,old medals,framed b&w pictures of him and friends in the war, a whole lifetime of treasured items one holds dear. It was surreal to watch a muslim lady buy his old Passport and framed photos of him for $2,"i throw picture away, i want frame only"she said, (she didnt say anything bout the passport lol,}. another brought his army uniform for a dress up party.I noticed all his school books when he was 13,14,15,and i don't know why but i bought only them.(the real stuff} Now this guy kept everything }and i discovered his name was Georges Fessler,born in Switzerland 1930s{the Alps) moved to Germany as a Teen, and immigrated to NZ by himself in the 60s, bringing everything with him,settling in a small town outside of Kaikohe called Ngawha. Isolate and reclusive, no next of kin to give these treasures too,(google it, lawyers looking for next of kin).Peering at his school art books Georges style was quirky, avant garde in style, and boho(weirdo?}. With that , and the info i had of him i found myself doing this(as Georges, I think sees it}t,(interpret) in an avant-garde style with a finger going thru the wood frame, then behind the glass and into his ear(Smazack).If Slavic is your tongue you'll know what he is uttering(written in background) in his native tongue as a typical 16 year old who, in 1948, is "young, dumb and full of ' (smazack,right in the ear!}Measures approx 30cmx20cm
