PETER SAVILLE AND ANNA BLESSMANN  

 

Peter Saville and Anna Blessmann’s  series of ‘Art Accessories’ are comprised of small acrylic signs that read ‘Object removed for photography’ or ‘Temporarily removed’ for example.  Artworks are made redundant and in its place these signs, modelled on those you would see in any museum, are signifiers of artworks removed. They will ‘represent’ art that does not exist, inferring scale and referencing painting or sculpture depending upon their placement, be it on plinths, shelves, or mounted on the wall.  Available for sale they will empower the public to become the practitionerand no longer a passive recipient of art.  These acrylic signifiers will simulate the environment that the signs would fit into, placed in a living room they transform the space; ‘is it a home or museum?’
