This artwork is on view in the Walker exhibition The Living Years: Art after 1989. The text below is the artwork's label written for that exhibition.

This tall, narrow cabinet contains 18 T-shirts, each printed with a phrase chosen by the artist. Lutz Bacher borrowed these texts from a sentence-completion personality test she was asked to take by her doctors before a surgical procedure to remove noncancerous tumors from her uterus. You are free to open and close the drawers in order to read the printed texts. The museum staff will not polish the handles—your fingerprints will become part of the piece.
