Global Art Inc.


An art-fair stand for a make believe gallery or institution claiming to operate in Oslo, Berlin and Dar-Es-Salaam, made of 4 large-size stretched canvases and a number of odd-looking sculptural works - in addition to a handmade chair (the dealer seems to be out) and a handwritten note informing of the opening hours (which are the business standard 9-5). A large dollar sign is inscribed on one of the sculptures; the mark of hard fact existence and communication in the (art-) world economy. But that global race is apparently not without a certain humour: Positioned on top of the stand a sculptural sign reads: Run Baby Run, and inside its double replies: Fun Baby Fun!
