- i går hed det i hvert fald ikke café noire.
I think many people miss the central tendency of the work ... I don't care what, say, a cup of coffee looks like. I only care about how it's drawn, and what through the years, it has come to be, and what symbol has evolved thorugh both the expedience of the working of the commercial artist and their bad drawings, and the reproduction machinery that has gotten this image of a coffee. for instance, to look like through the years. So it's only the depicted image, the crystallized symbol that has arrived ... We have a mental image of a sort of the commercialized coffee cup. It's that particular image I'm interested in depicting. I'm never drawn to the object itself. I'm only drawing a depiction of the object - a kind of crystallized symbol of it.
Den rigtige kop sort kaffe så vi på Pompidou, her er den.
