«Terré always had a tendency to collect signs of strong symbolic nature, not gaudy at all in their form, but yet complex in terms of content. Ex-votos are objects whose essence has more to do with Terré’s photography. […] They suffer a reversible movement and metamorphose again into the human being. It is like this object/ex-voto, dard thrown to the gods to dilute the fear (of the illness, poverty, disgrace, destiny), could turn into a mirror in the photograph, nearly a caricature, of the implorers who created it : a concentrate of sorrow, pain and happiness. (These set of candles are the soul and at the same time the guts of those who offered them.)»
