During nine months Spincemaille set up a temporary studio at the workshop of Velo, a socio-economic workplace that recycles old bicycles in Leuven, Belgium. During this period Spincemaille created a second production line. In stead of second hand bicycles, amateur paintings were inserted in to his production line. By applying the repetitive production process of disassembling, storing and reassembling that was applied on second hand bycicles, Spincemaille recycled old amateur paintings instead of old bicycles. The raw materials of 261 paintings was used to recreate five pioneering works in modern art history including works by Damien Hirst, Ellsworth Kelly and Kasimir Malevich.
