    "Arman's gestures are always destructive. His Coupes of statues or objects often play on his memory of technical cutting and the transformation of the very nature of the object. A statue cut up into slices is no longer merely an abstract line, but a network evoking from afar its prime function" – E. Navarro
    (E. Navarro, Arman, Paris 1997, p. 14).
