This simple poetry broadside mimics the rhetorical form of a popular call-and-repsonse, in which cheerleaders ask their respondents to spell out the name of the object-subject performing for the crowd. The ‘content’ of Thurston’s new cheer exaggeratedly refers to René Magritte’s famous painting, La trahison des images [The Treachery of Images] (1929) and the broader suspicion of realist referentiality that painting has become a classic symbol of.

The print is on a fully recycled off-white (light grey) Corona paper. It is are shipped flat in a card-backed A3 envelope with spec label.
