The breadth of Gerz's work and the wide variety of media he employs reveal with paradoxical clarity how fragmented narratives and/or disrupted images construct a place from which to consider relations between history (of earlier times and places) perceived at a distance and the immediacy of our personal experience of the present. Memory is invoked to concentrate the past within the continuity of our space in the present.Gary Dufour 1994
