Ivo Burokvic, Life as a Fake Artist
An artists talk and presentation by Paul Weirbinski
Catalyst Arts, Thursday 25th July 7.30pm.
Told through the character of artist Ivo Burkovic, Weirbinski documents the ordering of a custom oil painting from China, and it’s sale as an original artwork at a renowned auction of emerging artists work.
Wierbinski’s work touches on the tensions between the material and symbolic value of a contemporary art product.
“In a world of greed nothing is worth more than something which cannot be sold.”
