The script that is performed in this work is based on an academic report written by the artist. The content involves the process of creating the value system of a non-existent artist. Demands for internal debate as to the authenticity of art lie at its core. You have no cause to refuse a “fake” when its argument is complete, justified, and even prepared to refute your own “lines”, and when it runs even faster than the “reality” that you pursue in vain. This piece thus represents the artist combing “art history” with evil intent. It is not just a simple fabrication, however: it generates a rich, overlaid and plentiful artistic narrative through a “more open” method.
