WALL TEXT:

BY HAVING NO CHOICE BUT TO REMOVE THE PIECE FROM ITS ORIGINAL SPATIAL CONTEXT, THIS WORK HAS SUBLIMATED THE QUESTION REGARDING WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DECIDE THE AMOUNT, MEDIUM, AND SIZE OF A FINAL WORK IN THE RUNDGANG. WHO DESIGNATES THEMSELVES AS CURATOR IN THIS (NON)-GROUP EXHIBITION IN A SUPPOSED DEMOCRATIC PREPARATION? 

ARTIST'S LETTER

THE ARTIST INVITES YOU TO IMAGINE THIS WORK, ALONG WITH ANOTHER TWO PIECES INSIDE, AS A REASSEMBLED WHOLE WITHIN THE ORIGINAL CONTEXT.

THE ARTIST WARNS YOU TO WEAR THE MASK AND THE GLOVES IN ORDER TO OBSERVE THE WORK MORE INTIMATELY.
