"In fact, it is in the very nature of my structures to inexorably repeat. And my structures in space would be nothing if not repetitions of the repetition of my graphic structures, if it wasn't that the viewer could turn, deform, or enter into them."


François Morellet,"Structures dans l'espace" in Commentaire sur des oeuvres, 1990


________________________________________________________


"En effet la nature même de toutes mes structures est de se répéter inexorablement. Et d'ailleurs mes structures dans l'espace ne feraient que répéter la répétition de mes structures graphiques, si elles ne donnaient en plus au spectateur la possibilité de les faire tourner, de les déformer ou de les pénétrer."


François Morellet,"Structures dans l'espace" in Commentaire sur des oeuvres, 1990
