States of Exception is a reading, through a series of ink drawings, of the US Senate Intelligence Committee report on the CIA torture program that was declassified in December 2014. States of Exception explores the sites of torture as described in the report. These “black sites” were meant not to exist, a point in zero dimensions residing outside of space and history. For the detainees, however, this point becomes an entire universe and an eternity. This point-universe describes a geometry of power, of the infinite reduced to zero, of zero becoming everything. The geometry of power manifests itself most directly within the spaces of torture. These spaces, are built to be absent, forgotten, but they are nonetheless built. They remain. The power that wants to erase is nonetheless leaving artifacts. The detainees, forgotten, are in spaces that, in the stillness and extent of time, become all they can remember.
