His work is an homage to Ceal Floyer's work Monochrome Till Receipt (White): ‘a visually unimpressive itemized receipt stuck on a white wall’ (Nico Israel, Artforum) which is a document of a performance she did in a supermarket in which she only purchased white items.
This piece is materialized in a limited edition of 500 books, sold at IKON gallery's bookshop. I bought one copy of this limited edition book and intervened it with correction fluid, removing all the images of the stolen items.
I secretly swapped the modified book with another copy in the London gallery where the artist was exhibiting. This other copy was intervened the same way and displayed under my authorship, next to a digital video that documents the action at the gallery.
