Not all dust is equal. Robert Filliou demonstrates this, presenting in 100 simple cardboard boxes the residues dusted on paintings and sculptures of masters like Cimabue, FransHals or Paul Klee ...  The artist underscores the works’ ultimate immateriality; emphasizing the spirit of the gesture over the object of art; while all material objects must perish (museums and their collections are not exempt), the ideas and creative energies they embody are immutable.
