Catalogue Note

"The geometric aspect of Zero is created by the element of repetition, the placement in rows...This order emerges from the need to avoid preference. The absence of preference for particular places and points in the work of art is essential to Zero and necessary to provide an isolated reality. The geometric side of Zero is consequently geared to extreme simplicity, an organization of very simple forms, a reality derived from that which actually exists."
Jan Schoonhoven
