Catalogue Note

The force acting in Serra’s work is energy. Intelligence is also energy. We cannot see the process of intelligence—how it moves, how it works, yes. There are two aspects of intelligence: logic which is a process of dealing with quantities and definitions of facts; and intuition, which is completely different.”

Giuseppe Panza in conversation with Christopher Knight in Art of the Sixties and Seventies: The Panza Collection, Milan 1987, p. 53
