The support of this work is a sheer A4 paper, bearing a citation and the name of the aformentioned artist. The text reads in uppercase: “an artist is not supposed to assume authority.” Only the words “an artist” and “authority” are printed, in a black Sans Seriff typefont, the rest of the phrase being handwritten with a light graphite pencil so as to mimic the chosen typefont. The antinomic endpoints of the phrase, highlighted by their sharpness and the density of their ink, are united by a fleeting, negative, link.
