The performance is based on the artist's book Romance published by cura.books, MoMA Museum of Modern Art Library Collection, New York

The artist has drawn the book Romance formed of 5000 marks that represent an infinite flux of words and images. He is motionless on the stage, and each mark is projected on the mask he is wearing, as if the whole story of his life were passing before him.
