In her performance on May 30, 2013 in front of the French pavilion at the 55th Biennale di Venezia, Dayanita Singh signed and stamped copies of her book File Room (Steidl, 2013). Through this act of personalizing her books, Singh made the gesture of a gift; purchasers of her book not only received an individualized catalogue from the artist but also a bag and a scarf.
