Specialist Notes

"Cher Cavellini j'ai réalise the" Déconstruction de l'oeuvre d'Art pour savoir: - Pourquoi l'art existe? - comment changer the art? - what is the art? - Pourquoi je fais de l'art? Pourquoi Cavelliniet Ben veulent ils tant la gloire - faut il que j’abandomne l'art? - Helas la Deconstruction m'a bringé aucune de ces reponses elle n'est en faite qu'une oeuvre d'Art de plus d'iste artiste egoiste de plus qui a eu peur de changer quoique ce sont de fundamental à l'art de peur de perdre son Ego. Je viendrai à Brescia faire mon autocritique ".
