The result of Ivan Moudov’s residence at the Tobačna 001 CC is an overview exhibition in the form of a catalog of the artist. Every page of the exhibited catalog is an original work of art available to the Gallery’s visitors at an affordable price. All the pages of the catalog containing reproductions of the artist’s works are for sale, as well as the pages containing texts written by different authors. By purchasing a page the new owner will officially approve the publication of the page in the catalog and will thus also become a co-editor of the catalog. The name of the page owner and consequentially the owner of the work of art will be published in the colophon, unless the buyer wishes to remain anonymous. Furthermore, the owner of an individual page of the catalog will also become the owner of all the periods on that page. He or she will be the exclusive owner of such since the artist will insert them by hand on all the printed pages intended for sale. The final, version of the catalog for circulation will not include periods.
The exhibition project is based on reduction, since with every new exhibition it will decrease while the extent of the catalog will grow proportionately. Any pages not sold in Ljubljana will be available at the artist’s exhibitions later in the year. The printed version of the catalog will be published only at the end of 2015, and the pages that no one has purchased by that time will not be included therein.
Therefore, you should take advantage of this great opportunity to become the owner of an original artwork by Ivan Moudov, which will be made available at the exhibition opening at a very attractive price. All buyers will receive a certificate confirming the originality of the artwork with the author’s signature.
Lifetime warranty included.
Ivan Moudov (1975, Sofia) graduated in 2002 from the National Academy of Art in Sofia and soon became one of the most recognized artists of his generation. He has presented his work at numerous solo and group exhibitions at the following events or in the following institutions: Cabaret Voltaire (Zürich), Moderna Museet (Stockholm), Kunsthaus Dresden, Manifesta 4 (Frankfurt), the 52nd Venice Biennale, the 1st Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, and Kunsthalle Wien. His artistic practice comprises photography, video, performance, and installations. In his work, which has a strong metaphoric charge, he questions the field of contemporary art within the systems of power as well as the sociopolitical and economic conditions; furthermore, by subverting the existing norms and rules he reveals the levers of their functioning.
