THE SAGA OF THE LARGE BRAIN

Who could have ever imagined that by creating a single artwork that it would lead me down such a rabbit hole? It would have never occurred to me that my fate would become inextricably linked to that of several artists of foreign origins, who were invited to create monumental public artworks as a tribute to the 200th anniversary in 1989 of the French Revolution. Among them were Chinese-American architect, I. M. Pei, who designed the glass pyramid at the Louvre, Polish-French sculptor and political cartoonist Louis Mitelberg (aka Tim), who created a statue in memory of the 19th century Dreyfus Affair and Scottish concrete artist, Ian Hamilton Finlay, who was commissioned to install a public work at the Versailles Gardens. For the first time, I am revealing excerpts from my private 5-year correspondence with Finlay, concerning the unspeakable reason that our destinies became intertwined by the French Ministry of Culture.
