There is an archive that holds fragments of toppled statues. Next to each fragment lies the stone that, when thrown, created it. Two symmetrical shards, born from one gesture. In some ways they are identical: no one knows which of them called for the destruction.

The ambiguity of image and matter and the removal of certain dichotomic principles (such as object/subject or animate/inanimate) constitute an alternate reality, pulled tight between the image of resistance and the resistance of image.
