Observing the city carefully, and in order to capture what I call “moment/place” of art, I am acting as those who are discovering art without a work of art. Hundreds of ‘signatures’ are thus installed and left at different places all over a city (Sarajevo, in our case). My role is reduced to mere signature with the name, the title and the year of production (thus imitating the standard practices of museums, galleries, i.e., their ‘captions’), and then to photograph them all. Artist does not touch anything; he only observes and signs it. But, isn’t the essence of art contained in selection, origin, destination and the completion of an artwork?
