Celebrating the Missing Pieces

Henri Lefebvre draws attention to the missing pieces of destroyed, lost or incomplete works of art.

The Missing Pieces
"The Missing Pieces" by Henri Lefebvre is a catalog of what has been lost over time and what in some cases never existed. In a chain of laconic citations, Lefebvre lists artworks, writings, buildings, letters and lives that cannot be seen, heard, read, inhabited or known about, conferring an almost mythic quality on these enigmatic creations.
