Page Not Found is thrilled to present a new commission by artist Emma Wiersma, published in our front window at Boekhorststraat 128.
In her project “I’m selling all of my belongings/ All solids are moving and I help them a little, moving as atoms do” the artist puts all her material belongings up for sale (489 pc.). Every item that is sold, is replaced with a new, similar solid, within the same price range and in the same state of use. For example a worn coat will be replaced by a worn coat, an opened tube of toothpaste by another opened tube of toothpaste, a passport photo by a passport photo of somebody else, a children’s drawing by a children’s drawing made by another child, etc. Each new belonging will be put up for sale subsequently.
The project will be exhibited at the upcoming Graduation Show at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. The commission at Page Not Found will be on view correspondingly from 6 to 10 July.
On July 6 at 18:00 we will celebrate the unveiling of the commission with a toast in front of our window. Emma Wiersma will showcase a special selection of publications from her project for the occasion.
Emma Wiersma (1998) graduates from the Image & Language department at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy this summer. She has written for De Revisor, Mister Motley and Tubelight and enjoys shifting movements.
