"From Greek Mythology to Contemporary Images"
It comes from sculpture, a matrix
petrified by the hands of a man, a piece of leather awaits a body
to make its own life explode into a million pieces, among which
are mixed our fears and dreams, our laughter and our many tears,
our greatness and our pettiness.
Through the alchemy of the game, the body is ripped from realism,
to express the organic being and tell us that love, death, and
hunger still constitute the metaphysics of man's first steps and
that all that remains is not false illusions, false labyrinths
in our psychological desert. These sedentary De Marchi brothers,
travelers of the wonderland, make us cross through the looking
glass into a carnival of shapes for us to place before our lost
faces, ghost of an oblivion that wants to be remembered in the
cemetery of appearances.
Alain Le Bon
