THREE POSTCARDS FROM TAKE ME (I’M YOURS) BOX. 1992. ALL SIGNED BY BOLTANSKI.
London: Serpentine Gallery, 1992
Three different artist's postcards (10.5 x 15cm, 2pp) each with a pair of images that Boltanski found in copies of the Nazi SIGNAL magazine. He pairs up images of cultural life (a ballet dancer, a model) and nature (a bee) alongside images of soldiers and weapons. This relates to other work where images of victims and murderers are mixed together where no-one can tell which is which. The normalcy of daily life could be found in Nazi Germany as much as less guilty societies (and one should remember Boltanski's jewish heritage).
Take Me (I'm Yours) was the first of a number of such exhibitions which Boltanski had a hand in initiating alongside Hans Ulrich Obrist. Members of the public could take the artworks away. However these cards were only found in the deluxe catalogue for the show.
Each of these cards are signed in pencil by Boltanski on the back.
