The Coordinates of Disappearance
In visual or semantic conversations and contexts, disappearance is a phenomenon that ripples through all the world’s cultures. Its depictions are hinted at in the paintings of Velázquez and the masters of the Northern Renaissance, before taking form in the work of Magritte, then picking up a certain radicality in the strategies of Conceptualism. The motif of disappearance as both a traumatic void, but also a means of bridging a gap in time – the existential paradigm of “in between” – is fully explored within the intimate dramas of the work of the artist.  Within the coordinates marked out by theanticipation of a future event after the loss of the past, the phenomenon of disappearance cannot be separated from the visual machinations of quantum mechanics, the transition from the discrete image to the image-in-flux, where welose any sense of the position of the observer and his location.
