Borrowed some books on Italy today... thinking about "The Ambassador"

Francis Alÿs, The Ambassador, 2001

"Alÿs sent a peacock to the opening of the Venice Biennale. People were there to see the peacock but the peacock also functioned as a critique of all the preening people who were attending the opening."

Lee Friedlander, Honolulu, Hawaii, 1977

Mark Dion, Cabinet of the Allegory of Vision, 1996

Joseph Koudelka, Gardens of the Palazzo Borromeo, 2007
