In 1995, the artist had traveled the country during several months, as the assistant of the notorious Mister R.G., illusionist. Obviously the artist is not being cut in slices or pierced, he simply gives the illusion of it. We know this, every piece of art becomes such from an illusion : for the piece to be seend in its Arts form, the observor must receive the necessary keys to transform the ordinary object into an aethetic object. And as in every magic trick, this illusion is generally obscured. We only see the show, rarely its mechanisms.
En 1995, l'artiste sillonne le pays depuis plusieurs mois en tant qu'assistant du fameux illusionniste Mister R.G. A l'evidence, l'artiste ne se fait pas decouper en morceau ou transpercer, il en donne simplement l'illusion.

Mais comme dans tout bon tour de magie, cette illusion est generalement occultee. on ne voir que le spectacle rarement son dispositif.
