A boy sitting on the ground is cutting images of sculptures out of a series of books about Egyptian, Sumerian, Assyrian, Aztec and Etruscan art. Later he abandons them on the floor already covered with scraps. Settled within the exhibition centre of the Quadriennale di Roma, this performance results in hundreds of images invading a transit space, where the incessant passage of visitors constantly modifies the position of the scraps, bringing to life a huge visual assemblage in continuous evolution, as if it was a contemporary archaeological site. The cropping gesture rebuilds a memory mixing and blending places, times and different cultures.
