Times is organized around damage. Moves across, an undaunted predator. An animal eating from our heart, and against which we react with nostalgia or with the burning gesture of revenge. But here there is no yearning. There is fury, there is rage, there is nastiness. And the alternative -both its poignancy and its affliction- that the work seems to suggest, is: facing the annihilation of time, self-destruction; facing its nightmare, hallucination.
If the apocalypse, recurring theme in the work, stem from revelation, perhaps we should wonder if what that brings to light is not the bad conscience of society. Its infected beauty, its aberration. The <<distorting mirror>> in which we do not tolerate recognizing ourselves.
