The exhibition Hands in the air!* follows a logical sequence around a gold leafed wooden panel titled Index, stating ten instructions which underlying principles are to be found dissected within the exhibition through the establishment of a color/material/sound/image lexical field

From 1 to 5* depicts scenes of professions in the domains of order and defence, as they appear in currently existing children colouring books. Graphite, chalk, dust and scratches are left visible, revealing steps of the construction of the image, thereby diminishing the outward preciosity of the leafed gold backgrounds.
