A (photographic) Collection of Curators Heads

Performance/Photograph, 2005


Part of Collecting Time, the Living and the Dead.

Conversations were had and complicated strategies were embarked on with galleries and museums re. the (im)possibility of temporarily collecting the work/life/performance etc. This process was then reversed and resolved by the economic action of collecting the curator’s heads.
