This article is a contribution to Brazilian artist Carla Zaccagnini's artistbook, cataloguetraduit.
Following Catálogo, Catálogo Traducido and Translated Catalogue, cataloguetraduit is the first French version
in the series: an ongoing collection of commissioned texts by writers who respond book by book to particular
themes in the artist's work.
In this text, inspired by the particularities of Zaccagnini's artwork Panorama 2001, I address the
creative process which results in a panorama. This process consists of gathering a collection of fragmented
points of view and traces of actions. Once put together as a single artwork, every spectator links these fragments
into a unique narrative, thus each encounter creates a new experience in time and space. Within this panoramic
creative process, the methodology is intrinsic in the ability of the artist to create the context of unended
perceptual revelation and to himself, dissappear.
