Abstract

Artwork commissioned for '#exstrange: a curatorial intervention on eBay by Maria-Laura Ghidini and Rebekah Modrak. The artwork consists of two gilded objects, a nutmeg and a quince; the online auction and all correspondence relating to the auction. Who is to say what objects mean to us, or which relationships they manifest and reify? What propositions of care can be explored through this platform's specific taxonomies and terms of engagement? Deep among Collectibles > Fantasy/Myth/Magic > Other Magic, this artworks casts its own spell.
