Catalogue Note

"Einstein’s discovery of the cosmos is the infinite dimension, without end. And here we have the foreground, middleground and background, what do I have to do to go further? I make a hole, infinity passes through it, light passes through it…everyone thought I wanted to destroy; but it is not true, I have constructed."
Lucio Fontana
