Where are you from?


What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

Yes, I very much like primitive art because the artists expresses their unconscious mind: archetypes (like Jung) and the collective unconscious. It is part of humanity – all of us.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

This is superior to Picasso’s art.
