The most lonesome story ever told, 1998
Stainless steel, 150 x 130 x 85 cm

This work is a praise to the classic western movies and especially for those scenes where the most hardened villa in camping out round the fire, under a starlit sky telling a long and gripping story about himself, to soon after pour out his coffee in the dying down flames of the fire to erase his own story and his own history.
