Because of the malleable nature of the material, each new number carries traces of the previous bended forms, and the steel becomes increasingly warped. The work confronts material transformation and the accumulation of allegory through simple means, from neutrality through action. Zero&mdash;the return to neutrality&mdash;is impossible to achieve once the material has been loaded with the history of its transformations.<br /><br /> Monday, April 30, 2012, 4:30 p.m.<br /> Wednesday, May 2, 2012, 4:30 p.m. </p> </div> <form action="./" class="share"> <a href="#" class="selected" rel="permalink"><small>Permalink</small></a> <a href="#" rel="embed"><small>Embed</small></a> <label id="embed-toggle"> <input type="checkbox" name="embed_toggle" /> <small>Old embed code</small> </label> <br class="clear" /> <input type="text" name="permalink" value="http://www.moma.org/explore/multimedia/videos/226/1132" id="permalink" class="selected copy-paste" /> <input type="text" name="embed" value="&lt;iframe src=&quot;//www.moma.org/videos/embed/226/1132&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;allowfullscreen&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt; " data-embed="&lt;object width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot;&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;movie&quot; value=&quot;/embed/videos/embed/226/1132&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowFullScreen&quot; value=&quot;true&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;wMode&quot; value=&quot;opaque&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowscriptaccess&quot; value=&quot;always&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;embed src=&quot;/embed/videos/embed/226/1132&quot; type=&quot;application/x-shockwave-flash&quot; allowscriptaccess=&quot;always&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;true&quot; wmode=&quot;opaque&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot;&gt;&lt;/embed&gt;&lt;/object&gt;" data-iframe="&lt;iframe src=&quot;//www.moma.org/videos/embed/226/1132&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;allowfullscreen&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt; " id="embed" class="copy-paste" /> </form> </div> <br class="clear" /> </div> <!--googleoff: index--> <div id="playlist" class="JS_MediaPlaylist"> <div class="playlist-tabs"> <a href="#playlist" class="first selected" rel="tab-playlist">Playlist</a> <br class="clear" /> </div> <div id="tab-playlist" class="tab selected"> <h3>Special Exhibitions Video: <i>Words in the World</i> (3)</h3> <div class="bottom-border"></div> <ol class="scrollable" > <li> <a href="/explore/multimedia/videos/226/1134" class="media" rel="/explore/multimedia/videos/full/226/1134.xml,/momaorg/shared/video_file/video_file/1383/Five_Sisters.mp4?language="> <span class="image"> <img alt="Guy de Cointet. &lt;i&gt;Five Sisters.&lt;/i&gt; 1982, remake 2011.
