Hermae

When the negative exercise emerges in relation to Erme, that negative is one with the destruction of the existing, with silence and the cancellation of what it is, waiting to make room for a new vision. And it is then, above all in the long reliquaries, that the suspended register of the image finds wide progress. It is not for nothing that the display cases that guard the “omens”, the signs that are somnambulistic in some way, intuited by the mind, stretch and tend like loopholes. They also buy the path of a path and “walk”, I would say, on the horizon. Here they are landscapes, observation posts, desert places made just to contemplate. Even rocks, gorges, mountains that tell the impetuous advancement of a thought that pursues its faraway imago.
