Objects without objects
The two-dimensional drawing
which refers, alludes, constructs three dimensions.
Three-dimensional objects which refer, allude, draw two dimensions.
The virtual image insists on showing a virtual space, such an effective redundancy that it overshadows virtuality everything might be real?
Objects that are not objects, objects that are the drawing of objects.
Canonized designs sharing the same logic with the everyday ones.
Such complex crossings that they only exist for the sharpness of the stroke that shows at the junction, because it is graphic and material stroke.
Not tamed function
Factual function which is dismissed in vital bureaucracy and then simple and naked demarcation of the symbolic function.
Factual function that turns into mere being there, into displaced availability symbolic function that delimits the absence, which delimits the double absence.
Absence of factual function and absence of the available object.
Duplicating the duplication, two unnecessary armchairs.
The absence of two submissive armchairs.
The symbolic function is not beaten and does not enable any contempt.
The task of the look
Drawing is the register of what is present and of what is imagined; the field where it is displayed is necessarily space.
In space, the gesture is performed.
Space collects all the traces: in the sensitivity of the paper, the blinding variations of the screen and in the toughness of the metal rods.
Then, drawing makes concepts spatial.
The consequences of that effort, of that twist, are not less significant: drawing conceptualizes space.
Drawing contains more than the existing and the unattainable.
The drawing is opened and it opens the world: then it will be review and preview.
These drawings and these constructions are not mirrors to look at oneself; they are descriptions of the eye for the description of looking and inhabiting.
