Catalogue Note

"These assemblages have mixtures of sites and scenes, which are the constituent parts of a moment of viewing [...] The mind totalizes; it recapitulates all fields; it makes them dance together. It shuffles them, exchanges them, everything is astir. It also transforms them, cooks them in its sauces [...] After all that, one can expect some effect of cacophony." Jean Dubuffet
