Paraphrasing Georges Perec’s foreword into his Species of Spaces: The subject of this exhibition is not the void exactly, but rather what there is round about or inside it. To start with, then, there isn’t very much: nothingness, the impalpable, the virtually immaterial; extension, the external, what is external to us, what we move about in the midst of, our ambient milieu, the space around us.
In short, spaces are multiplied, been broken up and have diversified. There are spaces today of every kind and every size, for every use and every function. To live is to pass from one space to another, while doing your very best not to bump yourself.
(Species of Spaces / Especes d’espaces, 1974)
