Portrait de l'artiste François Morellet

The writings :
some texts from the artist

« For about the past twenty years, I have obstinately produced systematic works with the constant directive of reducing to the minimum my own arbitrary decisions. In order to set a limit on my sensitivity as an « Artist », I have eliminated composition. I have also removed all interest attaching to the execution of the work, and I have rigorously applied simple and obvious systems, activated through chance or the participation of the viewer, that could develop productively. »

François Morellet, 1971
