Neither theme nor medium nor ideology links the works of Elisabeth Ballet, Cecile Bart and Sylvie Blocher, yet when seen together they form a coherent whole. Situated at a cross-roads of recent avant-garde movements, they assert a disregard for the boundaries between different forms of artistic expression. Therefore, without renouncing a strict formal vocabulary, they acknowledge the limitations of a language which is articulated only by form. As a means and not as an end in itself, form is no longer the only thing which gives the work its significance.
