Catalogue Note

While Morellet's project seems clearly on the side of Abstraction, he mainly looks to question purpose. Non-representation is in fact the necessary mean to create the breach he seeks in the predictable order of images: it contributes to disrupting the law of genres. Because Morellet is neither geometrician nor mathematician. He sets the rules of a game based on the absurdity of the simplest conventions.
