— A wallpaper sized print made from a picture of a work of 1992 (Portrait of the Artist).
For the artists' overview exhibition Vertaalde Werken/Translated Works, Barbara Visser 1990-2006 at the Museum de Paviljoens, it turned out impossible to exhibit the piece 'Portrait of the Artist', consisting of eighteen drawings by street artists, in the original manner; with push-pins on board. The work has been acquired by the collection of Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in 1992, and they have changed the exhibition conditions for reasons of conservation. Now it is no longer allowed to show the drawings outside of frames and natural light. For the exhibition Vertaalde Werken/Translated Works, Barbara Visser 1990-2006 the piece was re-photographed on-site and printed as a b/w wallpaper at 1:1 scale, to avoid showing the real work in the conditions set by Museum Boijmans van Beuningen.
