Damian Ortega | Parkett

Damian Ortega
Zurich, Switzerland: Parkett Magazine, 2013
19 x 19 x 2 cm (each segment)
Edition of 35 [+ 3 AP] signed and numbered copies

Produced for the 92nd issue of Parkett magazine, the work is presumably a verbal pun on the magazine’s name and Parquet flooring. 

"In the spirit of Duchamp, Ortega (like many of his peers) deploys the readymade to great effect. Using store-bought goods such as cameras, cars, and tools, his work establishes, by virtue of their prior reality as useful things, a reciprocal relationship between the realms of the everyday and art."
- Helen Molesworth, Parkett
