The source material for theses sculptures stems from Sotheby’s auction catalogues. The pictures were glued onto board and assembled to seemingly precious formations. The title ‹Schätzewert: $ XXX,XXX› (estimate price: $ XXX,XXX) for the individual pieces is a German play on words on the double meaning of Schätze (treasures and to estimate). The figures are the added up estimate prices for the lots as stated in the auction catalogues.

2014, pictures from auction magazines on board, about 30 x 20 x 15cm
