Good-bye, PW

“I never supported apartheid” is an interesting painting. Many South Africans liked it but none wanted it in his/her own home. I’ve just heard that it had an accident in my absence and its canvas got torn. Good-bye, PW. Perhaps it’s time for you to go. Nobody remembers you any longer.

南アフリカ人の多くが「素晴らしい! でも、うちには飾りたくない・・・」と漏らした不思議な作品『私は絶対にアパルトヘイトを支持しなかった』。留守中に事故に遭い、キャンバスが裂けてしまったそうです。南ア人ですら覚えている人が少ない元大統領。絵としても引退の潮時かも。。。
