Thus, today’s gift is tomorrow’s commodity. Yesterday’s commodity is tomorrow’s found art object. Today’s art object is tomorrow’s junk. And yesterday’s junk is tomorrow’s heirloom.» Arjun Appadurai, “The Thing Itself”. In face of a building industry which is increasingly occupied with reusing existing buildings and building components, this project aims to investigate practices of reframing monuments and objects already in circulation. With Byggesak 201912777 – Midlertidig oppbevaring av kunstverk – Fiskerne og Måken as a point of departure the project explores how values are attributed to architectural objects through relocation, reproduction and mediation. The research has resulted in a series of entangled investigations which collectively construct ‘The Picasso Boxes’ edifice.
