Amorces is a project on which Michel Mazzoni worked for years, step by step, and sometimes at the same time as the edition of its other books. This new opus enlightens the respective genesis of the precedents as much as it shows us the quintessence of the research for the author as artistic practice. It is a return as well as a new beginning with unexpected comings or goings. In this book, some facsimiles of scientific texts are mixing on the principle of the collision and of the echo with the photographs. the use of a thin Bible paper reveal the ghost of every image. With “αστάρια”, the spectator is plunged into a universal experience of the “moment” or Epiphany like James Joyce said.
