How to Destroy a Gallery

Maribor, Slovenia
April 2008
La Vitrine Gallery

“Group exhibition with open call Because of many reasons, one of the most active gallery project in city of Maribor (Slovenia) is closing down. La Vitrine collective who is running the small, hand-made gallery out of wood with two windows and covered with “tarmacom”, located in the cultural center Pekarna, invited us “to destroy it” as the last project with this gallery; the question now is, how to destroy it alias the process of destroying it. We decided through this open call to set a group exhibition with every send signed or unsigned ideas, every short (or long) concepts, one sentence e-mails or drawings, flour plans,… that we will receive till 25-4-2008 onĀ

My proposal: Weigh the artists of the collective LaVitrine. Procure the same weight of locally produced honey. Smear and pour the honey over the entire structure. The honey will act as a natural preservative. A preserved gallery is a destroyed gallery.

The full collection of proposals are available at How to Destroy a Gallery
