LINE FINDERUP JENSEN: VERNISSAGE FOR BEGINNERS
Is the art business just a big show? With her obviously subversive video game, Line Finderup Jensen provided an opportunity to examine the art scene in a self-ironic way. The interactive work, on display at both the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK and the simultaneous PARALLEL VIENNA, linked the two festivals spatially and in terms of content. An XBOX controller was used to move through an art exhibition’s vernissage, clink glasses with other guests, or throw money at them – thus mockingly portraying the art market as a game with some disturbing insights.
