Benjamin Vautier

male / French, Swiss
photographer, painter
Wants to be the only artist without a biography. 'Je n'aime pas les biographies. Les biographies c'est de l'ego. Le rêve c'est de pouvoir un jour être artiste sans biographie mais c'est presque impossible car l'art, c'est toujours de l'ego. Les biographies c'est: moi je... moi je... seule excuse: il y a des gens qui se demandent qui est ben er d'ou vient-il? Qu'a-t-il fait? Alors, pour eux, voici remis à jour ma vie, mon nombril, mes conneries. - Ben Vautier
