    Pre-Lot Text

    It is a question of dominance, really. I am interested in levels of priority, hierarchical levels: a dominant figure juxtaposed with something subordinate to an overall system. It has to do with human expression, identity, individuality, it starts taking on those association qualities.

    Jonathan Lasker in conversation with Josefina Ayerza with Lynn Crawford, lacanian ink, no 3, 1991
