Writings background

Artist’s writings

“Morellet’s texts should be seen as both the antidote and the hidden face of his work. They reveal his work in all its paradoxes, and they are the ones that best reveal its workings, both apparent and secret. Bursts of wordings, puns, spoonerisms, palindromes, homophonies, homologies […] all kinds of wordplays in a variety of forms with a zest for life and exuberance that don’t care about proprieties and decorum.”

Henry-Claude Cousseau, extract from the preface Mais comment taire mes commentaires, beaux-arts de Paris les éditions, 2011
