INTRODUTION



By assembling art prints - until today we reach 10290 prints-, we create sculptures, and owing to value and time as integrative dimensions, we call them "Economic Sculptures".

Each sculpture is entangled with the HoC daily price, which is 936,80 € today, and is therefore a piece of money art, but as the sculptures cover days, weeks or months or even one year, time comes more to the fore as an artistic design element.

When it comes to appropriation of Money, these sculptures allow us to strike harder, to re-enact and re-write Money´s codes, to force it to produce art works like Commodities or Origamis. We tear Money in to pieces and keep the best parts like Hedge Fund , We scrutinise the greed of money and lure it with REEs, we infiltrated the market places and fairs with Fractional and Shared Sculpture, we even educate about the relation between money <=> art with Mobile.

Money Art as a Commodity
Open picture gallery
1. Money Art as a Commodity

Often art collectors manage their art collections in much the same way investors manage their portfolios. To make it easier for them, we created this sculpture called Commodity. Not only it looks like one but also it can be treated like any other commodity purchased for speculative purposes, whereby the deal is about value and time..

Every commodity is made up of between 28 and 31 stapled art prints (representing a month), which are fixed by two steel bands onto a transportable euro-palette.

2. Money Art as a Hedge Fund

This sculpture is reflecting the current economic situation and is focusing on funds which extend the principles of finance capitalism to art, which regard and treat art as a financial asset. In reference to this we called it Hedge Fund, whereby the deal is about value, time and people

Short description: This outdoor installation consist of all art prints of the year 1994 (365 pieces of money art), whereby we cut each art print into two pieces - like detaching a coupon:
  • The bigger parts (the drawing) are assembled on roofed wooden boards and are fixed to the ground - like houses, like a village. 
  • The other parts (the small print at the bottom [number, date, price]) are collected and are either a transferable proof of ownership or - if you bundled them - they can be treated as shares or issued mortgage bonds.

3. Money Art as a Fractional and as a Shared Sculpture

These sculptures bring together two oppositional developments in the art market:
  1. One is that more and more art works are not public, they are not even private, they are imprisoned in climate-controlled warehouse with high-tech security. The owners of this locked-away art works are often not interested in art itself, the only purpose is to hold safe the art while waiting for its price to rise. (Imprisoned Art)
     
  2. The other development is "Fractional Ownership" simply said, is a percentage ownership of a specific asset. The asset is fractionalised in ownership shares that are sold to shareholders. Co-owners then share the benefits of the asset such as the right to use it.

These art works are meant for a collective and therefore called Fractional Sculpture and Shared Sculpture, whereby the deal is about sharing value and time.

Because time is shared they become travelling sculptures. which consist of rules, mutual agreements and either 53 art prints as weeks or 12 art prints as months, whereby we cut each art print into two pieces: The drawing and the small print, For more details, please open picture gallery at your left.
