Children of Duchamp

Readymades

In Children of Duchamp project,I make variations of Duchamp’s first Readymade Bicycle Wheel with simple combinations of various premanufactured wheels and stools. In this project I pay attention to technical aspects of Readymade such as artistic labor versus productive labor, educational instructable art making, and displacement of artist’s identity. These aspects of readymade is emphasized by making a Readymade piece with readymade/ pre-manufactured products, such as IKEA furniture, Playmobile toy, Barbie doll, packaging like mass produced products, and making instructions of manual.
