0,45 seconds before the ball smashed through the window 
I was thinking how my life would be if I was attractive, rich and sexy

La Ruleta de la Suerte is a Spanish quiz show in which candidates 
have to guess right adages by mention single characters. A slightly 
dressed woman has to turn around the right guessed characters for 
fake, actually all the characters are generated by a computer. We 
manipulated the video so the blackboard finally shows the sentence: Basta de Sexismo en la Television - Stop Sexism on Television

Armchair and floor are sprayed, as if light is shining through the window 
which is painted to the wall.

My Most Favourite Art
2004 - 2011
65 exhibition labels
size variable

—

MY MOST FAVOURITE ART is an installation made of exhibition plates, which I`ve stolen and 
collected from different galeries and museums since 2004. Only criterion for the theft of a plate is 
my fascination for the work which belongs to it. The installation allows the viewer access to my 
innermost, to the works accompanying my artistic career. Different languages and logos give 
information about their origin so they could also be read as a travel diary. For example they inform 
the viewers when I was being in London, Berlin or Venice and which exhibitions I`ve seen there. 
To some of the exhibited title plates the memory let appear pictures in the viewers minds and for 
the unknown the phantasy builds complete new artworks.

The interior of the Kunst.Box, which is a public showcase used as an 
exhibition space, was turned upside down and formed back in a three 
week process. The basic result, when the lights gleam bottom-up and 
the carpet floor with the lie around artifacts are mounted onto the ceiling 
just built one station of the diversification.

The Kiss
2007/2010

—

“The Kiss” was given to the MoMA as a donation without asking for 
permission. I entered the museum as a regular visitor and gave an 
intense French kiss to the wall. Next to the invisible kiss I then fixed a 
fake label, which simulated the style of a regular MoMA caption.
