Mitch Robertson

Last week I finished a text for a forthcoming book on Mitch Robertson, and I was reminded of how strong his multiples are. Many of them play with the idea of the edition size, such as Twice as Big as the Last One (2002) and 100 Secrets for Sale (1998). The latter consists of 100 envelopes, each containing a handwritten secret, signed and numbered. The number in the edition dictates both the price (1/100 is a dollar, 100/100 is a hundred dollars) and indicates the level of intimacy. The purchaser also buys the copyright to the contents, allowing them to make the secret public, resell or publish it.

The work can be purchased here.
