These five demonstrations consider sculpture and sculpture’s value and worth. The title, Five Easy Pieces, is borrowed from the Bob Rafelson film released in 1970. The etymology of the term sculpture comes
from the Latin word sculpere which means to carve or to chisel away pieces of stone. Practice ensured that this etymologically specific term was extended to include materials besides stone and methods
other than carving and chiselling. I address this artistic technique with the same preconceptions as those conveyed by the collective unconscious: sculpture as a physical, noble and spectacular practice.

Value is “the worth of an object that can be traded and sold, in particular its price in money”, but it’s also the “the quality that meets the conditions required for it to be worthwhile”.
These two senses of value should be taken into account when speculating about the value of a sculpture, or an object that was or will become a sculpture.
I act with five objects; a hole dug out in the Lot; a bird’s nest; a lump of asphalt; a step by Mark Geffriaud and a vandalized motorway sculpture.
