2017
(2013-2017)
"ONE -100 ATTEMPTS TO END MIMESIS IN ART - A FORMAL CONCEPT”
consists of “one -100” paintings and “one -100” phrases.
The paintings belong on the wall, the phrases in a book.
Each book also contains the image of each painting.
Each painting is inseparable connected to a specific copy of the book,
as the painting itself bears no signature and is only signed on
the corresponding page in the book.
