In this respect, Dere's works recall a black box. A series of cultural and historical images retrieved by the artist are combined in the light of polyphonic references, to either be eventually monumentalized, or to evoke lost and found museums as a catalogued construct. This holistic structure in which each object is conceptualized as a question mark, transforming into collective memory, constitutes the visual anthology of the artist.
