21 Gun Salute for the Death of a Collector | Action | 2007
For my first solo show in a commercial gallery, I presented an exhibition that took the relationship between artists and collectors as a starting point. Discussions around the increasingly prominent profile of collectors in the international art-world have escalated in recent years. I approached this exhibition as a backdrop within this debate.
The show comprised of a single certificate of authenticity. This sets out the terms of a contract stating that the collector who purchases the work will have a 21 gun salute performed at his/her funeral.
