A found canvas was the point of departure for Open End. Roman Ondak found the unfinished painting in the abandoned workshops of the National Gallery in Bratislava. In an oblique act of institutional intervention, the artist applied a checkerboard pattern to the white square applied by an unknown predecessor, and excised a small section, adding a sculptural quality and giving new meaning to the unfinished canvas.
