Work in progress: Certificate of Authenticity of a Certificate of Authencity infinitum

A blank piece of paper will be "certified" as "authentic" by a Certificate of an Authenticity. That will in turn be certified by another Certificate of Authencity. And so on.

The idea is to raise questions about "Certificates", "Authenticity" and "Certificate of Authenticities".

Especially in terms of how they work in the context of Contemporary Art where some works are ephemereal, non-objective or simply difficult to "collect" compared to traditional forms of art.

Is the "Certificate of Authencity" not an artwork itself? Do the work really need the certificate to be "complete"? How does the certificate affect the work? etc.
