[…] “When through the virtual screen, it has become possible to be involved in a space that is both dynamic and immersive, the story of the representation has come to an end, and it has been opened a story of which we have seen just the remote possibility.
On this border in full progress (on this frontier that we are not yet able to map from one to another or beyond, because we are neither here nor there) Flavio de Marco works with slow, ironic, fine consciousness. Flavio presents the space and rituals of the representation: the white wall, the canvas, the square, the rectangle, the spectator who stops to watch. But what Flavio represents is the blank screen, the starting point and the possibility of virtual space, the possibility of post-representational space”.
