I have no words to tell you how much I hate the police

This is a work called ‘Made in U.S.A‘ of Clair Fontaine exhibited in Helena Papadopoulos gallery in Athens. The work described in contemporary art daily:

‘is a smoke drawing from 2004 that lifts its name from the famous 1966 Godard movie where Anna Karina pronounces several times the sentence “I have no words to tell you how much I hate the police”. The gesture of tracing with a flame on the ceiling evokes the vandalistic actions of leaving marks through fire, usually performed in spaces that are at the same time enclosed and public like corridors, toilets or elevators.’
