O que coleccionam os artistas?

Obras suas, obras de outros artistas seus contemporâneos ou da história da arte, design, porcelanas da China, réplicas históricas das Colecções Philae, caixas de fósforos ou tampas de plástico (para dar uma cadeira de rodas)?

Foi isto que Lydia Yee (mulher de Christian Marclay, autor do The Clock) procurou perceber e mostrar em Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector, no Barbican, em Londres.

A lista de nomes é curta, mas a oportunidade de perscrutar as suas escolhas é rara.

Por isso faz parte do tour londrino até 25 de Maio.

What do artists collect?

Their works, works of other contemporary artists or from the history of art, design, porcelain from China, historical replicas, matchboxes or bottle caps?

This is what Lydia Yee (Christian Marclay‘s wife) researched and now show at Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector, at the Barbican.

The list of names is short, but the opportunity to scrutinize their choices is rare.

So it became a part of the London tour until the 25th of May.
