- Further information
'Signing' is about the historic Yalta Agreement in 1945. It is a tense, ambiguous depiction of the encounter of the world leaders, Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt, with photographers in the background. The artist focuses our attention on the act of signing, as if to convey that with a stroke of a pen the fate of millions of lives is sealed.
