Print on aluminum panels
Title: Please Please Your Self
Group exhibition: “Please Please Your Self”, Atelier Cardenas at P.Nuts, Paris, May 6–15, 2004
Curator: Carlos Cardenas
4 panels, silkscreen on anodized aluminum, 50 x 70.5 cm [17 1/2 x 27 3/4 in.] each.
Together, these four panels constitute an enlarged reproduction (500%) of the exhibition announcement, which was designed by myself. Where announcements commonly reproduce a work presented in the show, this piece is a reversal of that principle. The hierarchy between the work of art and the documents promoting it is upended, as is the status of authorship in the field of art vs. authorship in the field of graphic design. This piece is also a document of the exhibition.
