The artist Navid Nuur has chosen to send the image of a work he produced in 2013. The sentence is engraved on a large copper plate and the words are filled with "Vicks Vaporub" ointment, a medicinal product recommended for common respiratory ailments. The work comes thus with a strong smell of Eucalpytus, which it transmits to its viewer and to the works around it. Copper, a conductive material, seems to cool under the effect of the ointment, and oxidizes slowly, changing color.
