Shanghart Gallery Bazaar

— with Kenneth Dow

Following up the concepts behind the bazaar compatible space of Paul Devautour in Shanghai, we tried to work with something already existing within the markets system. Rather than dropping our works into this already working ecosystem, we tried to transfer a part of this market into an artistic context. By adding only two signs, we transformed a flower shop into a venue of shanghais famous ShanghART gallery. Further recontextualization happened online by copying the galleries website, modifying its contents and linking it seamlessly to the original. For the thought exhibition in the flower store we created an artist, the artists work, consisting only of elements out of the store, as well as site and exhibition related texts.
