à la maison de Ben
The journey, on July 10, 2010, to meet Ben Vautier in his incredible house in Nice before “Deux sexe maniacs”, the show we had together in Genoa, with the curators Caterina Gualco and Lara Facco, the video-maker Claudia La Barbera and Massimo Khairallah to take pictures and, most of all, to drive all day long. An unforgettable day!
