Valuation is a solo exhibition at Siauliai Art Gallery, Siauliai, Lithuania. 11 May - 3 June 2017.

--

The exhibition “Valuation” is part of “Art Value” project, which examines the notion of political economy and neoliberal values in the art processes, i.e. production, circulation and consumption. Questioning how we evaluate work of art and what criteria we choose for it.

The project takes place through the exposition of numbers. This aesthetic turn is examining the contemporary notion of contemporary human (post-human), who radically and decisively believes in numbers. Questioning the exponentially growing trust in numbers and data, its inclusion in everyday life, abstraction and unification of everything that is around us, also through what is digitalized, coded and quantified: through clock time, media archaeology, algorithmic procedures, computation, quantified-self movement, Big Data, and other.

The exhibition consists of Art Value: Auction performance, Art Value: 14,47 film, Art Value: Auction Receipts, Flowing Data (2 LED displays), series of After On Kawara and Digital On Kawara.
