Catalogue Note

“On Kawara’s work, in all its simplicity and soberness, is an intriguing rendering of the ‘time’ phenomenon. He reduces the intangible, inconceivable dimension of time to a visible, ordered structure without forfeiting any of that infinity. His work is a gigantic time-machine, as it were, a kind of science fiction in which one can completely lose oneself.”

Karel Schampers, “A Mental Journey in Time,” Exh. Cat., Rotterdam, Boymans-van Beuningen, Date Paintings in 89 Cities, 1991, p. 200
