This monograph features Frank Vigneron's on-going project entitled Le Songe Creux, with Heterotopias as its sub-theme. The concept of heterotopias was originally developed by Michel Foucault as a comprehensive classification of principles aimed at understanding how different cultures settle boundaries for different kinds of ritual and cultural usages. The artist wrote, 'There are several ways to create heterotopias in the rather artificial environment of the gallery. By trying to apply the six principles of heterotopias to a set of large objects, it will be possible to give back at least a measure of spirituality to an installation of art objects. I will title these two projects 'a room with a view' and 'the library' and will explain how I came to create them with my drawings at their core.'

本書闡述了韋一空用數年時間創作而成的《Le Songe Creux》,其附題為「Heterotopias」(異托邦)。「異托邦」一說出自福柯,它是一個「全面的分類原則,藉以理解不同文化如何為各種習俗與文化需要訂定界線。」根據韋一空的解釋:「在畫廊這個頗為人工化的環境中創造異托邦,有數個方式。試以異托邦的六大原則應用於一組大物件上,便可能至少恢復藝術品裝置一定程度的精神性。我將會命名這兩組創作為《有景觀的房間》及《書房》,並闡釋為何以圖畫作為創作的核心。」
