From the artist

A definitive loss of community transfers the act of looking to an unanticipated sovereign place. Detached from any reciprocity, it begins to desire but alienate its 'objects', which start to operate in the domain of fetishism. At the same time s almost hysterical effort evolves to bring things close. However, the notion of availability that is evoked violently removes things from their specific locations and periods, for them to be played out in a phantasmagorical environment." Philippe Pirotte, The Arena, Luc Tuymans, 2003
