Varese Window Room (1973)

"The problem is to find the right space. Not only is the space itself important, but also its relationship to the space around it.

"With the window by Irwin at Varese, it's important that it faces a garden with many dark green trees in the background and large branches in the foreground. From the empty room, which is all white and neutral, you see nature full of life. The opposition of the empty space inside, to the outside seen through the opening, looks like a painting.

"The window becomes like the frame of a painting, a very strange painting which is real and not an illusion. The shifting image is very interesting. It's beautiful to see this wall of green, living trees. If there weren't any trees, if there was a street behind this wall of the house, everything would be lost."

Giuseppe Panza (who commissioned this installation)
