Outside the White Cube

2011
Intervention with acrylic paint on intercepted magazine and documentation display,
dimensions variable














This piece emerged from a chance encounter with a Sotheby's at Auction magazine that had been delivered to Jay Jopling – artdealer and founder of White Cube Gallery – the morning of Saturday the 5th March 2011 in front of White Cube's gallery in Mason's Yard (London).

After intercepting the parcel, I removed with paint the images some of the contemporary art pieces from its pages. After this, I made a replica of the plastic bag and sealed it, so that my intervention remained unnoticeable, and anonymously placed it back where I first found it.
