About the artwork

Amalia Pica is known for her installations and sculptural works which explore communication and realms of civic participation. This new edition continues her 2015-16 series 'Joy in Paperwork', in which the artist created images using bureaucratic stamps she has collected from around the world. Repeated imprints of these administrative tools ('PAID PAID PAID') in abstracted and decorative images suggest freedom from oppressive or rigid systems of command.
