About this work

This lithograph was produced on the occasion of the exhibition “Le Tableau des Eléments”, held at the Museum of Contemporary Arts- MAC’s Grand-Hornu in 2005. Framing, symmetry, perspective, and polarity are all aspects of Peter Downsbrough’s  diverse  practice: here he uses the straight lines of a square, whose corner is superimposed on the word OPTION, inverted as if to suggest many possible readings, so that our perception and location of space are modified.
