"As a self-declared "petit maitre de la mediocrite" (little master of mediocrity), for 40 years Jacques Lizene has been laughing at all overstatements withing the aesthetic discourse, all pretensions of respectable serious art, all ideologies and all limiting classifications. In addition to sculptures, drawings, videos and music, Lizene produces numerous performances based on the meaninglessness of the gesture. In doing so he does not hesitate to re-interpret his own work according to the context that he is offered. In this way he creates an autohistoricity that is sometimes cheerful and sometimes ironical in nature." Volume is in very good condition.
