Title:
One = One (Symbolic Representation)

Author:
Beatriz Morales

Description:
Artists exist in a sphere of tension between pure creation and market dynamics. Transactions between the artist and their audience are almost exclusively framed in economic terms. I aim to lift this cultural veil, to enable spectators to engage in a non-economic artistic transaction. I place a drawing in the gallery and specify that it is free to take. The only condition is that whoever takes it leave a drawing in its place, created with materials freely provided. Art becomes social currency.
