Tim Etchells - Let’s Pretend, 2008

The simple phrase spelt out in the sign invites a complicity with its author, proposing an act of shared denial or deliberate and very public forgetting.

In the ensuing confusion even the viewer’s encounter with the work is threatened with the possibility of erasure.
