The Order Of Things

2015 - photocopy printed on a puzzle, 1000 pieces, 48cm x 64cm

The puzzle The Order of Things (2015) is a reference to my working method, in which the individual pieces arrive separately in the archive and eventually become unified as a single work. The Order of Things relates to the way we try to create order (sometimes neurotically) by classifying and naming the things around us. But it also refers to the consequence of this behaviour that things (les choses) never correspond to the labels we give them (les mots).
