About the artwork
This is from a series of works in which the infrastructure of the art business informs the pieces, which use imagery, recycled materials and readymades based on my experience as an art handler. In working closely with galleries and collectors, I’ve learned that this particular art world, or market, is dependent on so much more than the art and the artist.
This particular sign, which marks “this side up” on the boxes and crates that transport artworks, is the most common in the transportation of goods across the globe. It is connected to the context of Absolut Art, in which you can buy editions that are sent to your home in a cardboard box. In a broader sense, this icon could illustrate the current capitalist system, which is built upon globalization, i.e., shipping. Of course, some might see a gloomy or deadpan smiley face.
