The Story of a Process: "Signs that Say what You Want them to Say and not Signs that Say what Someone Else Wants You to Say" (1992-93), By G. Wearing.

Montserrat López Páez

Abstract


This article is an approximation to the project Signs that say what you want them to say and not Signs that say what someone else wants you to say (1992-93), by G. Wearing, from the statement of the process or the history of the project. Conversations with the artist, published between 1997 and 1999, allow us the reconstruction of the process in order to apprehend, from a more wide perspective, a work of reference to the artistic current practice.
