“How does one represent his own time?…
Surely not in attempting to illustrate it, nor by commentating on it or following it. In any case, it remains opaque to itself and to us. “We don’t see anything there!”, to repeat the lofty expression of critic Daniel Asasse, the man who taught us how to look at the details, and even beyond them. We attempt to see clearly, to enter into our own time—not with our eyes closed, or our vision obscured by an oversaturation of images, but with eyes wide open to occurrences that might amaze, even surprise, us. There are blind spots in our own time and we do not know how to recognize them or draw them out of their eloquent obscurity. Deafening silence. No words, no faces, no works… or rather, fittingly, there are indeed creative works that speak to us, captivating us and shedding illumination on our time…” Thierry Fabre
