Catalogue Note

Sculpture has no beginning or end. It is a continuity, at least as long as the engine that fuels it is on. It is a time that escapes measurement, unlike that of a music score for instance... On the way, a slow-moving object sort of blurs its starting point and even its internal trajectory. Its course becomes unpredictable... Slowness expands space and duration.
