Perhaps he couldn't come up with enough work to fill the gallery and thought sod it, let's just tell them to imagine some? Emperor's new clothes most definitely come to mind here!
Mind you, I could do with some extra space. If I crossed this and the Tate one with all the boxes, perhaps I could get an Arts Council grant for a new unit Could even charge admission for people to come and look at a load of brown boxes.
