People Quote People - The Death of the Author 2.0
2007. Engraved white marble. 30x19x4cm each

The quotations no longer refer to the correct authors. On the mock website, quotations are continually reordered randomly with different authors, spreading online misquotations as a form of liberation from the fixation on authorship. This explores plagiarism and issues of authorship in the era of the creative economy, with its attendant profusion of artistic creations and their remixes. The offline installation reflects the new death of the author through engraved slabs of marble with memorable misquotes about plagiarism.

Installation at "Nothing Political", Komplot - Bruxelles 2010.
