Milano: Pirelli HangarBicocca, 2017
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. This was a second such installation - previously in Paris - the bags however differed slightly from each other in the texts but the designed was the same . Theoretically an unlimited edition but time limited. This example is in VG+ condition but folded twice for storage.
This example with a piece of children's clothing from the exhibition.
