Today, Pompidou

Francois Morellet

Jean-Michel Othoniel

I really like this last piece:  Le collier-cicatrice (The scar necklace). The artist made 1000 necklaces and gave them to random people at the Europride in Paris, as a remind of the death of Félix Gonzales-Torres for AIDS. The thing I liked most is the idea that art can be shared. In the end the necklace is just an object that he decides to give has a gift and the only thing he asks for is a picture of the person wearing it. I just thought it was a different way to show and make art.
