“Am I here...? / SAY YES, Absolute Power Spray” Installation.


Artist Diego Fortunato presented his intriguing installation at Christie’s Lates London on Monday 11 February 2019.


There was something startling about the perception of the room, the walls had been manipulated to enable us to feel a space existing beyond the actual limits of Christies.

This was a perfect setting to introduce SAY YES, Absolute Power Spray

 If simply spraying the person in front of you with this device we know we will get an unconditional YES to any proposition asked, then it follows that there would be no more conflicts of any kind on Earth. Just everlasting happiness…?

It was also a powerful statement on the global landscape of contemporary politics dominated by ´Fake News’, and the way we’re losing little by little our ability to decide. We’re getting invasively controlled to the extreme.
