The French artist Armand Pierre Fernandez, better known as Arman, made a name for himself worldwide from the 1960s on transforming everyday objects into works of art, encased in plexiglass or polyester. He did this by artful accumulation ('Accumulations'), but also by dissection, such as sliced bronze objects ('Coupes') and burnt pianos and chairs ('Combustions') encased in polyester. In 1960 he founded the famous group Nouveau Réalisme together with Yves Klein and Jean Tinguely.
