The painting was created by Tomasz Alen Kopera for the exhibition “One Million Banknotes” organised by Lukáš Kándl and the Libellule Group.

« We often say “ for a buck you get nothing”, but what can one get for $1,000,000? Sometimes a broken Hoover, when it has the appropriate signature, on a pedestal, in the King’s bedroom… But the true artwork, the one that grabbed Kings interests, turns about to be as complex as the alchemy work. This transmutation, which transforms dark metals into sparking gold, has had a lot of people dream about as a way to fulfil all their desires. On the dollar banknote it is written “In GOD we trust”, and little is required, very little, just a small tiny letter of the alphabet, to obtain “In GOLD we trust”. And all is said. Here we are. They didn’t realize that transmutation was successful, for a long time, so successful that everything, even their soul is from now on in gold, such a solid gold, which sparkles with such a blinding brilliance, that it prevents them from seeing the simple and hard reality: unlike genuine alchemists, they forgot to look for both gold and the Philosopher’s Stone. »
