“Actual space is intrinsically more powerful and specific than paint on a flat surface.”  Donald Judd

“…Donald Judd excribes space, a term introduced by the French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy. Excription refers to a becoming-other-than-itself, whereby writing, matter or color brings forth something that is not contained in itself. The boxes are ‘solids’, but they also create space.” ivar hagendoorn
