"I find this cheap foil at a studio of a friend. He wanted to use it for a project but never did. Well I hope not... So I was very fascinated by this material. The quality--that it was so glossy. I've always liked the fact that you have to do very little to make it look good. In this case, you really have a lot of interesting effects created by almost nothing. All the colours relect and also it has a very psychadelic effect when you look at it from a close distance. A bit like on an acid trip. The fact that this cheap store foil work is such a big contrast to the expensive acrylic box around it, is another aspect. Without this box, it would have been more trashy, cheap and even more fragile. But when it's inside it gets more serious leaving no doubt that it's a real piece of art... I like this simple grip. The way of working with these two opposite parts and perspectives. I also like the reference to the art history -- that it has to do with Manzoni and Yves Klein and the presentation of their works today" (A. Reyle, in conversation with A. Tovborg, 27 June 2006, reproduced at www.kopenhagen.dk).
