  • Catalogue Essay

    "Everything together - the sketches themselves, the time that the viewers take to look at them, the turning of the pages, the reading of the text, all orchestrated in one specific rhythm, the totality of the voices, the presence of a real, live person who is leafing through the pages - comprises that special quality of the demonstration which constitutes a unique genre - the genre of albums." - Ilya Kabakov
