Metallic frames assembled like giant screens are strung with stainless steel cables from which hang thou sands of pictures cut from encyclopaedias of various kinds and origins. The screens form a sort of maze or barrier that can be circumvented or traversed in various ways. The perforated pictures hang from the cables to create a subjective, fragmentary narrative of history in motion. The uncaptioned images appeal to the viewer’s memory and summon up personal recollections and experiences.
