February 4 till February 6 2010
The theme for this fifth edition is ‘Masterpiece’, with each auction we attempt to come up with a theme that explores a different aspect of why a darling may have been killed. In the case of the masterpiece the focus is on works that have a latent quality, but one that never made sense within the context they were created.
Most artists strive to make a perfect artwork, something that they think is the best artwork they have ever made or that ever has been made by any dead or living artist, an artwork they want to let the whole world know about, something that says it all, a milestone in their career, a-once-in-a-lifetime creation; ‘Masterpiece’!
These are the works that we have put out a call for… A theme that finally gives the artists a chance to exhume some of those works that lay in waiting, tucked away in the attic…
Rules & guidelines:
· Entrance is free
· Bidding is open to all
