In his posthumously published notes, Marcel Duchamp introduced the concept of the Infra-Mince, while declaring it undefinable. ‘One could only give examples of it’ he said, and pointed at the moment during which the tobacco smoke smells also of the mouth which exhaled it, at the sound made by legs dressed in velvet trousers and brushing against one another, and at the warmth of a chair, left behind by a sitter no longer there. One may think of the Infra-Mince as a state of in between, a space made out of pure difference as it lies between one object and another, the tension between traces of an idea and the emergence of the next. It is in this particular space that Luna Yaker has spent her life thus far and by this concept that she defines her design.
