Site-specific installation,
exhibition Diaphanous and Illusion,
L'Iselp, Brussels, 2003.

When ISELP commissioned a permanent installation from the artist Joseph Kosuth, he created A Map with 13 Points on the exterior surfaces of the twelve lightly sanded windows of the art center. As he said, he “appropriated” statements about art by twelve different artists and had one engraved on each window.

I re-appropriated Kosuth's appropriations and placed them on the four windows of the exhibition space, working with the duality of substance and immateriality in words like air.
