“Image Think”: 55th Venice Biennale 2013
“(…) The artist’s oeuvre can be classified according to its relation to space. (…) One line of artistic inquiry is represented by those works that comment on and/or criticize spatial devastation, both urban and natural. The artist examines perception, introducing the role of the body as the creator of space as the medium for its understanding (…). (…) Light becomes the constructional element in the artwork. Depending on the intensity, the work appears and disappears, denoting the state of presence and absence. (…)”
