The artist’s art-related credit card debt, letter press printed receipt on Stonehenge

This is a receipt to record a transaction between the artist and the collector. In this transaction the collector assumes responsibility for the totality of the artist’s credit card debt accrued as part of the studio practice. The debt is not sold, but the balance is transferred from the artist’s credit card account to that of the collector. The receipt remains, not as the work, but as the residue of the transaction.

This work is discussed in the catalogue for The Value of Nothing, a 2009 exhibition.
