Try to sign a snorkeling elephant
Try to sign a snorkeling elephant can be seen as a poetic report on what happens with manipulated images in online circulation. The image shows the snorkeling elephant Rajan, being approached by a diving artist under the surface of the tropical sea. Referencing Yves Klein's symbolic gesture from 1946 to sign the sky above Nice and to declare it his biggest monochrome work, this digital collage discusses the artist's choice to transfer the most devious, the most unreachable and most absurd idea into an artwork. Under mysterious circumstances the image was taken from us by the internet and can now be found on several tourist sites, in the middle of snorkeling paradise and wildlife resort ads. Is what remains of an immaterial artwork only a good fictional story or a humorous anecdote?
