The white and orange paper was pasted up front and back side, on the main entrance door to the museum.

The piece is visible at the same time both from inside the museum and from outside the building; concurrently in and outside of the group exhibition "Land Art Arte Povera Conceptual Art" which was being held in the museum - Daniel Buren, not having been officially invited to participate, which explains the absence of his name from the exhibit catalogue.
