Installation, performance/action
Authentic banknotes of €5 bank notes are silkscreened on one side with an photosensitive ink. The result is the progressive and complete darkening upon one side of the banknote when exposed to direct sunlight in an accumulative period of time (25min). The project questions value and legitimation within cultural and economic systems, either by directly paying with these altered banknotes and inserting them into circulation or by creating an action directly involving the Jury of the Krakow Print Triennial. Asking the Jury, in their capacity of custom control, to enter a game of value and legitimation by opening a box containing these banknotes and provoking its darkening in the moment of selection of works for the main exhibition.
