In whichever point of the exhibition the visitor is situated, he will always be surrounded by a material universe in the balance between the cold heaviness of the metals and of the concrete, and the fragile evanescence of the graphite, and of organic elements such as bread and eggshells. Playing a part in the reinterpretation of the war object into contemporary artworks made with war remains, and in artworks that materialise the unexpressed war bequests, the user is immersed in a multi-focal perception of history, whilst the time, gaiting under his eyes, blending into the artworks, disgregating and making them perish.
