THE BLANK CONTEMPORARY ART
99 WORDS WITH JORGE MACCHI
The artist takes the hand of the visitor and leads him into the forest. He knows it very well (in fact he has planted all the trees). He takes the visitor to a clearing in the middle of the forest. They stay there for some minutes in silence. Taking advantage of a moment of distraction the artist disappears behind some bushes and runs until he reaches the limit of his forest. The visitor suddenly realizes that he is alone in an unknown place. He tries some paths to go out but all of them bring him to the very same place. He regrets having been distracted with those flowers.
