    About The Work

    Yelena Popova’s edition for Nottingham Contemporary takes as its source the artists’ specially commissioned work for her 2016 exhibition This Certifies That. The artist collaborated with Noel Murphy, a computer programmer, to develop a code that generates images based on the Euro banknote. The code randomly produces different versions of banknotes in denominations ranging from 5 to 500. Each sequence is different, as the elements that make up the image constantly shift in potentially infinite patterns. Intricate and detailed, these guilloché line-drawings are used in banknote design to deter forgery. 

    Popova’s copperplate etching is inspired by the early printing plates used to produce banknotes. To create the etching, Popova has had to redraw each element of the image in Illustrator. The image in this print is therefore not a still from her film sequence but a fake, a detailed forgery created by the artist’s hand.
