“My concern is not to educate, but to broadcast... The shape is a medium, the passage by which any communication builds up itself... My sculptures, my forms are as doors in charge of active, beneficial signs, I hope..... To the spectator to be held in these signs or to go farther in the exchange …” (text Galerie Capazza).
