WUNDERSCHEIN (installation documentation) play_station gallery 10-25 May 2019


When and how does a piece of paper or an artwork acquire an exchange value? How is its' value determined and put into practice? Commissioned by CIRCUIT Artist Film and Video Aotearoa New Zealand, WUNDERSCHEIN is an installation by French artist Guillaume Cailleau, featuring a collaboration with New Zealand artist Matilda Fraser. Focusing on the physicality of money - especially notes - the project models, imitates and fabricates money to address ideas of value in finance and art.

The project was originally presented by CIRCUIT at The Audio Foundation, Auckland 13-27 Sept 2018 and then re-worked and re-presented at play_station, Wellington 10-25 May 2019. Guillaume Cailleau was CIRCUIT's International Artist-in-Residence for 2018/19.
