  • Catalogue Essay

    'I have been using stripes – without knowing I would be using them for so long – as a simple and ultimate pattern. I don’t show stripes, they allow me to show things. What happens around them? How does the work influence its environment? ... They are meant to challenge the idea of a frozen point of view.' Daniel Buren
