MY CLOTHES COST ONE DOLLAR 2003-2014
Work in Progress
One-dollar notes with crochet-lace and price tags
"Like You" Gallery Billing Bild Baar
For each purchased clothing or accessory, I crocheted the edge of a One-Dollar note and added the corresponding price tag of the fashion article that I’d just bought.
The omnipresence of the commercialized world of images and ideas has created a set of rules and values that takes over more and more a position of power in the art world.
With this work I contrasted the rules that determine the art market. The price tags, is the only mark on which the works could be distinguished and which represented a disturbing element because it fixed the price of the artwork.
