    “As there is no such thing as an innocent reading, we must say what reading we are guilty of”[1].

    Truth is not a question of logic and science, but art has the task of showing what the truth of reality is. It is an experience that extends further than reason can express. It is a point randomly placed in space which says that THIS point is a possible starting point; HERE is important, THERE is important, and so is EVERYWHERE[2]. Each natural element is itself and nothing else, describing a migration between utopia and collapse.
    A camera is disassembled in a studio in a quest for the primordial status of the image. The installation offers thought models, where ideas are weighed and tested juxtaposing them with an organic feeling reflecting the invisible core of the visible inscription[3]. They reflect the human desire to surpass the physical and perceived barriers and structures that bind us, despite the apparent absurdity of such imaginings.
    The re-use of a specific vocabulary of objects and words – reduced to catchy slogans – reveals the concerns that underpin Nagl´s work creating a rich and engaging experience that reveals itself over time[4] scrutinising the ways in which we are hybridised and formed through culture and experience. Natura numquam errat[5]. The work is characterized by a high degree of formal and thematic precision and makes a point of exploring the fundamental premises of art by using the respective presentational frameworks and modes of artistic expression themselves as opportunity to reinterpret personal identities on a global basis.
