ARTIST'S CRYPTO SHIT

HOMAGE TO PIERO MANZONI

“Crypto Art Phenomenon, first surprised me and then intrigued me, it makes me think about the evolution of collectionism and of the the collector’s profile.

Now files - which are nothing but data containers - are collectibles and desirable. The virtual as collectible would have been inconceivable up to 10 years ago. The undesirable became desirable similarly to the famous Piero Manzoni tin.”

Manzoni’s research, focused on the expression of corporality in various ways, triggers my research in which I investigate digital corporality in its inputs and outputs, reflecting on their value and on the metabolic process in itself.

Manzoni decided to sell the tins valuing them on par with the price of gold: 30 gr of “product” for 30 gr of gold.

I'm following his example selling 30 Megabytes of “Crytpo Shit” for the equivalent of 30 gr of gold in crytpo currency.

The label’s graphic follows the original layout apart from the decorative texture which
translates into binary code my name and surname, Federica Sutti, creating an updated and contemporary pattern.

 

Personal identity and artistic production get similarly digested and converted into data.
