“These images are formed concomitant with the de-structuration of their support, the dismantling of the frames and of other discrete visual units which usually break down the continuum of experience in order to bestow meaning on this sensorial multitude. They encapsulate a paradox: any iconoclast gesture is also productive, the image itself being impossible to annihilate. The disappearance of a representation generates a new image: the image of its disappearance - its trace.”
excerpt from curatorial text by Cristian Nae
