Gifts, Installation, 2013
A shop-within-a-shop in the existing gift shop of the Van Abbe Museum: a parallel gift shop where all the gifts are, indeed, gifts. This project sets to explore, among other questions, whether gift-giving can become an artistic practice, what the power of gifts is, whether they can serve as a way to access the museum’s artworks while remaining autonomous works, and if they become autonomous works, how will that affect the act of gifting? The gifts will refer to and converse with some of works within the current exhibitions and the collection.
