Catalogue Note

"We absolutely cannot consider the picture as a space on to which to project out mental stenography. It is the area of freedom in which we search for the discovery of our first images"  Piero Manzoni, 'For the Discovery of a Zone of Images', c.1957, in: Exhibition Catalogue, London, Tate Gallery, Piero Manzoni: Paintings, Reliefs and Objects, 1974, p.17.
