Annie Vought

Annie Vought découpe de l'écriture sur papier et accroche le tout sur un mur à l'aide de petites épingles. Un travail de moine je vous dit. Voyez ses autres œuvres ici.
Annie Vought est aussi co-directrice d'une galerie d'art, la Budget Gallerie. Et je vous fait un copier-coller des règlements de la galerie, parce qu'ils m'ont fait rigoler :

1. We use underutilized public spaces for our exhibitions.
2. If work doesn’t sell at the opening, it stays, in public, unguarded, for at least 1 week.
3. After the opening the unguarded work is sold on the honor system.
4. All art work in our shows will be sold, stolen*, or vandalized** and we can not pre-determine the outcome.
5. Our commission is arbitrary, optional, and determined by the artist.

* Having a work stolen is the highest honor of the Budget Gallery because it means someone wanted the work so badly they were willing to abandon personal and societal mores to acquire your piece of art. In our eyes, this may be considered a more valuable compliment to you than a simple monetary transaction.

** We suggest you consider vandalism a form a collaboration.
