“A copy while imitation, or an intervention on an object, a modification as addition or subtraction, can sometimes be better than the original, or at least present other equally desirable qualities. In this sense, these acts themselves, they become able to do of a good thing something even better.

Opel Ascona, Opel Coat and Cartier 1980 are images of three objects that are linked together by their owners, they belong to the same household, related by history but also by formal aspects.

From the perspective described above, I identify in these images features of these ideas, which served as the starting point for this visual assay.”
