Hammering 3,000 or 5,000 nails in a tableau-clous, burning 8,468 holes for a tableau-pyropoème, overlaying 100 layers of red paint upon a canvas: all these actions prove my will to use the utmost diligence. In doing so I didn't want to showcase the enormous amount of work. I tried instead to neutralize the arrogance of the artist
