An important historical work, the 1998 Terrasse is one of only a few motifs relating to the artist’s personal life and is based on a photograph taken at a private party. The image depicts a space with chairs, tables, and two outdoor grills. The darkened space is illuminated by four paper lampions, suggesting–together with the open grill–that we are looking at an outdoor space. On the table remnants of a human presence are visible: glasses, half-empty glasses, silverware, crumpled up napkins, as if a gathering had been interrupted. The traces evoke the absent visitors and imbue Terrasse with a mysterious quality.
