Visitors to the exhibition were by invitation only and ONLY 129 people viewed the exhibition during the three months it was on show - mind you a single step away from the central walkway and one fell to one's death 40 feet below. Art is dangerous. One of 600 copies. Fine.

France: Monnaie de Paris, 2015
50 x 46cm, printed brown paper bag with string handles. Boltanski organised along with Hans Ulrich Obrist a series of TAKE ME I'M YOURS exhibitions (beginning in 1995 at the Serpentine Gallery, London) where the artworks could be taken away by visitors. Boltanski often created "Dispersions" - piles of second hand clothing that anyone was welcome to put into the specially printed bags (of which this is one example) and take home. Theoretically an unlimited edition but time limited.
This example is in VG+ condition but folded twice for storage.
