Six canvases, which were arranged according to the space, represented the sentence «Some People Are Better Left Alone». I relate the sentence to the exclusivity of art and the group of people that engage with it.
The sentence itself I cite from a song of the Henry Rollins Band «You Didn’t need». In the song the singer describes – supported by drastic guitar sounds – his miserable feeling after his girl friend split up with him.
