Catalogue Note

In his sculptures, Cane does the same than with his painting. He makes references and quotes in a spirit of derision, criticism, sometimes envy and admiration, but with respect and honesty in order to show the “fragmentation of contemporary culture, and its integration in a work itself fragmented.”
