Trackpad is made of raw linen stretched on a frame. Behind the canvas a mechanism marks the impact points of a remote war : the distortion of the canvas shows U.S. drone strikes in Wasiristan and Yemen. At times of surgical war, history painting reviews its technique and mode of appearance: no more brush, no image remains on the surface,while behind an event happens fleeting and monstrous – which distorts the two-dimensionality of the picture – and leaves no trace.
