Stefan, viewed again

i just realised that if you take the word 'review' quite literally, it means to look again. it makes me realise that when i read a review i am indeed looking again, in a way, at whatever is being discussed. only, it's looking through the eyes of another as if the reviewer is repeating their experience, for me. and it becomes a second 'viewing' of the work - a reconstruction for the benefit of those not there.

the wonderful Mila Faranov came in to the galleries recently and has written some of her thoughts in response to the work of Stefan Gevers. you can find them on this great blog called Stamm - click on Stefan's image here and be transported by the magic of digital code directly to the review:
