Montage is the art that is capable of making the image dialectic.
Assembling images as I do in my work does not mean assimilating them to fit them into a logical narrative plot, but juxtaposing single fragments, conserving their multiplicity, partiality and impurities to make their combination or repetition generate an interference with or a reaction to my imagination, opening up new possible relationships and knowledge. The images are not sufficient on their own, they are always juxtaposed or, more precisely, collided with short phrases taken from the books of the time, words to read in order t amplify the effect of the image, not to assert a truth but to trigger a visual moment o awareness. It is only through this dialectic restitution that the image can take on a ne legibility. The image become the center of a thought about time. In a certain sense it is the attempt to construct an atlas of one’s own imagination, whose reference point is Warburg’s Mnemosyne Atlas, but with the difference that the images juxtaposed in this Atlas have first been manipulated and personalized through an operation of assimilation.
