Gestatten

2016 - today

In Gestatten*, the hand-guided line transforms function of the business card from a navigational aid in the art world to a study object in need of correction. The assertion of one's own person(a) in the art business is tied to the authority of the manual line over printed matter.

With Gestatten you will get my contact details. Designed for mass production by other artists and enterprises, these business cards have been studied and individually corrected until each one became mine, representing me as an artist and person(a). They are in use and circulating. _______________________________________
