"Urbahn recasts a list of characters that he has accumulated and brutally severed from their original context - the exhibition halls of the Louvre. They are now stand-alone players in a strange art historical puppet show, mouthing a series of mystical pro-clamations and spells (in hokey American digital voices) downloaded from the Net. Is Urbahn attempting to raise the painted dead? Or reveal the subliminal narrative that exists between these great historical works of art?"

Aaron Kreisler, The Listener (2005)
