about this work
150 Drawing exercises produced during the projects “Classroom: partial exercises” (54th Venice Biennial) and “Radical Learning” (2nd New Museum Triennial).

The text by the artist that accompanies the work:

"Are flakes all the same or all different?
They appear to be identical while they fall from the sky,
but who has seen a flake under a microscope?
And if I told you each flake is made by a different person,
but with identical instructions?
Are flakes all the same or different?"

Nicolas Paris (b.1977, Colombia)
