Catalogue Note

"I try to look at the things as if I had never seen them before, as if I were a Martian and didn't know what they were for, had no idea of the function of the things, was only interested in the structure of it. The minute you give a name to a thing, you cloud or you hide the innocent vision." Claes Oldenburg
