PIECES OF SILENCE


The silence in the title has nothing calming about it. Prototypical peace only appears in quotation mode: Botticelli's Venus enthroned on top of a garden temple, Michelangelo's David finds himself surrounded by rampant technology, both are reduced to blank signs and faceless - as Kone's figures always are. In their creative emphasis, the classical tradition and the Renaissance are perhaps not by chance rich sources for an art that adopts a markedly sceptical treatment of creative energy.
