Catalogue Note

"These are faces that have been violently forgotten...They mark the site of repressed memories, acts of erasure and psychic censorship, that mock our pretense of self-knowledge."

Allesandra Montezuma Soberg quoted in Ralph Rugoff, The Imaginary Portraits of George Condo, New York 2002, p. 10
