What is Andrey Tarkovsky, from Nostalgia, "The Russian house inside the Italian cathedral" wrapped can also be used as the wrapper; the wrapper can also be wrapped in its turn. Such effects can be proximately approached by way of older anticipations, such as Malraux's intuition of a fictive work of art: he had in mind the way in which photography creates hitherto unrealized art forms, for example, magnifying the beaten gold of a piece of Scythian jewelry into volumes reminiscent of the friezes on the Parthenon, transforming decorative art into sculpture, and the provisional, mobile, minor products of nomads, into monumental and sedentary canonical "works." He himself, being canonical and modernist in his views, did not succeed in producing the concept of such transformations but only in adding the anonymous Scythians (along with the grave painters of Fayoum) to the "major" canon. Whether the operation could work in the other direction, and the great canonical forms be turned back into minor art, is another, unanswered, question ( Deleuze and Guattari try to do so with that modern classic called Kafka).
