Erasure acts as a gesture through which to withdraw from visibility the carefully folded forms, a reversible process, paralleling the notion of “undoing”, of “unmaking “ their previous state of existence. The subtle trace that remains is but a fragile history. The folded napkins, in their brief moments of existence, embody a fragile, ephemeral vocabulary of forms, a trace of elaborate, poetic gestures, a reminder of their temporality and the passage of time in general.
