GIVING UP IS NOT AN OPTION

Zinc letters with black laquer paint / 30 x 600 cm / 2012

The viewer who enters the exhibition place gets confronted at first sight with a situation in which the artist is about to finish setting up the artwork. A ladder, nails and paint are still on the floor seemingly waiting to be used. At second sight the sentence Giving up is not an option is surely to be read ironically. The artist gave up installing a piece named “Giving Up Is Not An Option” and the work is finished exactly by not being finished.
