The Noise of the Boots, the Silence of the Slipper
The exhibition is the point where time is stopped.Ulrich Krempel 1988
This is just one example of Gerz's belief in art as a poetic act of faith. Rather than dealing worth commemoration through the presence of a column as a monument, he chooses to emphasise the physical absence of the monument, as it will thus grow more significant in our minds - a living commemoration.Bojana Pejic 1993
