'Fonaments' by Ignasi Rosés (Barcelona, 1969)
‘Like foundations, initial structures that will have to withstand the final construction. Like ruins breaking up in undetermined nature…suspending time when it descends towards non-presence or by establishing itself as a closed project: there is a moment of coincidence in all disappearing and in all establishing, where the object adopts a poetical meaning, a harmonic stability beyond constructive logic or erosive force.
Certainly, the artist is the person that the identification of this degree of suspension corresponds to and perhaps the reason for art is none other than signifying a specific state of an object’s passage from nature to word, and from word to nature.’
