How do we ensure that a senile mess prompts critical thinking?

1. Senile: A compound word combining two nouns; Senna, Ilana. 2. Mentally deficient, insane, stupid.

2. Mess: (informal) Chaos, disorder.

3. Thinking: (in general) organizing one's sensations, forming judgments, forming an opinion: thinking aloud; thinking about something (a) being mentally engaged with it; (b) not forgetting something.

Senile

Senna and Ilana are dogs. Building on previous art movements, you could call our work Neo-Fluxus, call it what you will. Playful (funny) provocations and actions are a breach of prevailing values and norms, and sometimes we even seem accidentally politically and socially engaged. An artwork has hundreds, thousands of narratives, all equally speaking about the artwork. By employing confusion and disruption in our art, we provide openings for ambiguity and critical thinking.

Together with Ian Skirvin, Seniel explores the question: "How do we ensure that a senile mess prompts critical thinking?" and "Are you only a dog if you poop on the ground?"

Ian Skirvin graduated in fine arts at St. Joost Breda. The works he creates are inspired by processes that take place outside our field. The hidden and the quest for something that does not play out in the foreground is a major source of inspiration that Skirvin explores within sculpture, total installation, and performance. Skirvin sees organizing space for potential and improvisation as part of his process, and for that reason, he eagerly encourages collaborations between artists and audiences.
