At the exhibition Fontaine – 100 years after Duchamp 
Videbæk Kunstpavillon -Samtidskunst
October-November 2017

Installation elements:
Boardroom table, chairs, PH lamp, coffee cups and thermos, pen and paper borrowed from local bank.
Clay hands made by customers, employees and share holders of the bank.

By applying the interior of the board meeting room from the local bank, the installation question the concept of ‘the invisible hand’. The term ‘the invisible hand’ first appeared in Adam Smith’s famous work, The Wealth of Nations, 1776 as a metaphor for how, in a free market economy, self-interested individuals operate through a system of mutual interdependence.
Does the invisible hand produce socially beneficial outcomes, or can it encourage greed, negative externalities, inequalities and other harms?
And how to incorporate the effect that each exchange creates signals about which goods and services are valuable? What does it create of collective consciousness?
