Expo Ecofuturiste: Pas d'Art sans vie, pas de vie sans Terre - Ben

'This bench doesn't have a problem'

You saw Ben's art yesterday - one of 35 artists exhibiting in the Casino Gardens. Here's another of his benches. I love it when art and life meet like this - life with the ubiquitous portable telephone.

Ben Vautier was born in Naples and lives and works in Nice. His work has been bought by the National Museum of Modern Art. Click on the link to read more about this fascinating artist who believes that Tout est Art (All is Art).

No problem at all. It is doing what it was designed for. Thank you Ben and Jilly. MB

I thought it was the part of taking picture of stranger. I just like the expression of the lady who sits on that bench.

Does this mean that she's a work of art?

Awesome photo. The phrase on the bench really ties in with the photo. :-)

Ha, ha - Ben is a comedian as well as an artist. I love these benches and their comments.
