For her body of work 'Being...', started in 2007, Alicja Kwade repetitively copied the handwriting of people she admired to the utmost perfection of an exact copy. The artist showed her copy to a professional graphologist who made a detailed analysis of the writer’s character. The expertise accompanies the handwritten letters.
