Catalogue Note

"I am still very much into the idea of when you imagine something and go after that thing until you see it materialize and then that becomes a thought to match the vision you had in the first place. So it's this material dialogue—this dialogue you keep between the material and the intellectual part of an artwork is something that really to me is the most important part because it is sort of a measuring stick for the reality of the world in which I live." - Vik Muniz, 2009
