• Byzantine Blue

    ‘SUCH BEWILDERING COMPLEXITY IN SPACE AND TIME IS REFLECTED BY THE MATERIALS USED FOR THIS WORK’

    ‘Brigitte Spiegeler’s work is about an imaginary time, which exists only in our minds: a timeless, internal time. Like a memory: vague, with reappearing details (the memory is engraved in the present moment, but in the same time immensely distant and imperceptible (memories belongs to the past). The blue colour gives a different relation with the time: it is a modern time, with abstract forms, superimposed on a fixed past, a complement to what already existed.’

    ‘Just like the apparent iconoclasm of Malevich’s Black Square or the drippings from the real Pollock rather did not cancel the preceding images they were creating, a new image for the future…’
