“Ti amo” – not a declaration of love, rather a model for the fascination with life which only art can express.Friedemann Malsch 1988
So Gerz succeeds in balancing disparate things in such a way that they neutralize each other. This is a method of dialectics turned in upon itself. As this paralyzes itself in this way, it opens the possibility of an open, that is, not pre-structured perception.Friedemann Malsch 1988
