Catalogue Note

“All his [Camargo] interest is actually based on the modulation and organization of the pieces of wood as a whole. His choice of wood demonstrated his indifference to previous materials. With the minimum of means of a formal order, he enlivens the surface and gives it a lyrical life that is disquieting and true. His desire to render visible the multiplicity and existential fluidity of a structure which asserts itself and from which the centre of gravity has disappeared.”

Karl K. Ringstrom, Paris, 1963
