Gianfranco Baruchello has created works in varying mediums throughout his career, expressing his belief that anything can be art, from a running farm to a pair of cutoff shorts. A close friend of Marcel Duchamp, Baruchello took his artistic philosophy close to heart: “Duchamp gives authorization to do whatever you want, anything at all, just so long as you really like it, just so long as it really makes sense to you,” he once said. Baruchello’s oeuvre includes wall-mounted “box showcases” in which he displayed paper cutouts and various objects. His other well known projects include several films, such as La verifica incerta (1965), a surrealistic montage created from footage of 47 different films that had been marked to be discarded.
