Little & Large Editions: Wall Mounted Ear von David Shrigley
KW Institute for Contemporary Art
Little & Large Editions was set up to produce and distribute little and large editions.
We want to work with both little and large artists, the hope is that the large artists will help pay for the little artists and occasionally vice versa.
We want to make money for artists who need money and some for those who do not. We’d like to offer editions that we would like to own and ones that you will want to buy. Any profits, both little and large, will go directly back into running the company. (Little & Large Editions)
Wall Mounted Ear is made of polished bronze. It affixes nicely to the wall. If it is affixed properly it will remain there, impervious to all manner of vibrations. The ear is part ornament, part warning sign. The ear is ornament in that it is desirable and nice to look at and may catch the light in an interesting and/or beautiful way. The ear is a warning sign in that it should remind us that we may be being eavesdropped-upon by the authorities who will not tolerate dissent. The ear warns us that if we are the authors of dissent then the authorities will rain-down all manner of shit upon us; they may have us rendered and tortured and thrown into a dungeon to die, like they are going to do with that guy from Wikileaks. (David Shrigley)
Wall Mounted Ear is an edition of 40.
