Veil of Invisibility

My intervention on these museum postcards consists in covering the artistic object reproduced on the postcard with a veil of paint that represents what is behind it.

The layer of paint transforms the image of the mechanically reproduced artwork back into a unique object. Through this gesture, I reflect on the processes of attribution of value in the art system, as well as on the authorship and ownership of these images.
