My meeting with collectors is usually a beautiful meeting with people who pay great attention to art, travel to it all over the world and support collecting with artists. I remember one funny story about 10 years old. I had an exhibition in New York. I came to the installation and the opening and was present when the boxes with my statues arrived in the gallery. A group of men entered the gallery.

However, they were not collectors but introduced themselves as ministerial controllers. I thought my crates were poorly treated, but then a graceful misunderstanding cleared up. I had no idea that it was not easy to bring a pig, a zebra, a horse, a goat, an ostrich or a dog to the USA. The import of any animal is subject to a complicated approval procedure at the local Ministry of Agriculture. In the end I was lucky that my show was not quarantined.
