Margret Wibmer / Relay – Collectors Edition / Limited Edition 12 + 2 AP / Signed and numbered
A work of art ought to be alive like an organism
This quote by Lygia Clark introduces perfectly well Margret Wibmer’s interest in processes that extend beyond the art object and invite the public to interact with the art work.
The Relay Collectors Edition, a beautiful hand made box holding a signed artist book and an original print, translates the underlying processes that shape this multimedia artwork. It involves the owner of the artwork in a process of extending time as well as space through movement and touch, a careful folding and unfolding as in a meditation or a ritual.
Custom-made box, handbound in black fine art paper with bright pink graphics in a metallic hot-stamping on spine and cover. The box measures 28,5 x 23 x 2 cm and holds one signed artist book including the video via QR code and one original, signed archival pigment print on Hahnemühle Baryta photographic paper (26 x 21 cm) in a parchment envelope. Each box holds a different print. The Collectors Edition is sold in a black wooden frame with museum quality plexiglas for optional presentation as a wall piece.
The purchase of the Collectors Edition comes with a proposition by the artist to present Relay in front of the buyer with a choice of two different prints. Please contact us for further information (use email link in the footer).
