Minuit, tentatives d'approches d'un point de suspension

“It is because I had just reached the age when one can, seriously and whatever the course of events, anticipate the outlines of one’s future life and talk of one’s future days with that air of the past that I began to prepare a Programme. That age was not an objective threshold nor a temporal reality, but rather the awareness of something. Whatever the number of days remaining and even given the most daring prognostics, it would be too short.

My Programme consisted in defusing time. Of course this was impossible in itself. But there were methods for coming close. It would be simple and permanent. I decided on a simple sentence for the Work’s name: “Tentatives d’approches d’un point de suspension” (Attempts to approach a suspension point). Yes, something like the desire to produce a work of art. We’ll go into the details. The details will show that small shapes are just as important as large ones. 

That all these formats existing on a horizontal plane seek to define the present. That all these scenographic constructions, apparatus, machines, objects, relationships with objects, with time, with the public, with images… finally all seek one thing.

A suspension.”
