Tautologies, 1971

It was in “Tautologies” that the artist most radically addressed the mechanisms of perception, its epistemological value, the relationship between “the depicting” and “the depicted” and the role of art. The artist creates a dialogue between the awareness of physical reality (the real existence of objects) and photography, which creates a new value as, while it is a being in itself, it is also capable of depicting another being. This dialogue allows for dismantling the patterns of perceiving reality. “I only seemingly juxtapose real objects with their photographic images. What I do in fact is juxtapose two images. I question the identity of an image and an object. Juxtaposition of two images of one object has a tautological character. I use two questionable elements to create a conviction on the real existence of objects” – wrote the author about the work.
