L'officiel Art - - Venice Biennale Tribute -

“Works of art are re­cei­ved and va­lued on dif­ferent planes. Two po­lar types stand out; with one, the ac­cent is on the cult va­lue; with the other, on the ex­hi­bi­tion va­lue of the work. Ar­tis­tic pro­duc­tion be­gins with ce­re­mo­nial ob­jects des­ti­ned to serve in a cult.”
