Prêt-à-porter

2007
bronze, Ø 1 cm.

A button, an object with a risible real value and a very low production cost.

An art work is instead, by tradition, something unique, inimitable and rare, something to be carefully preserved and kept safe.

Prêt-à-porter will be delivered sewn to the shirt, where a button should be, the least safe place to store a work of art. On the other hand, isn’t it a classic to lose a shirt button?
