The Life of a Contemporary Work of Art
This project was inspired by stories of art pieces being valued at ridiculously high prices, the destruction of art pieces from recognized artists, and forgotten art pieces. Three art pieces take on the human form and are later displayed at an art exhibition, from there each painting goes through its own trajectory in life:
One becomes an instant famous icon and is bought by a billionaire who plans to convert them into NFTs and later destroys them. Another becomes popular due to its unknown mystery hiding behind the painting’s simplicity, a museum curator later purchases them andreplaces the Mona Lisa being displayed in said museum, and later is vandalized by someone throwing soup at them. And the third painting never makes it outside of the gallery,they are ignored by everyone inside the gallery and are later discarded as trash.
