Whenever we are in front of an image, we are in front of a moment in time. (…) being in front of the canvas is like being in front of an open door. Nothing is hidden, all we need to do is to enter, but the light within is almost blinding, and so we keep our distance. This same openness holds us back: seeing is desiring, and we wait, face
to face with time. ‘History of Art and Anachronism of the Images'
Art recovers what remains invisible in memory, and awakens memories of experiences that haven’t happen yet. It recreates things we have forgotten and revives desires. It becomes
a self-reference, a self-portrait. It becomes
a mirror. It makes us remember past and future experiences, which appear in an uncanny way. Art can open windows in time; it shows us
a premonition of a non-synthetic past and
a memory of an uncertain future.
