Installation of 30 found estate agent signs onto the railings of Wimbledon College of Art (London, UK),
dimensions variable 








This piece – running from the 30th August until the 8th September 2011 (during Wimbledon College of Art's MA Show) – explored the notion of art education as a commodity in response to the current economic climate. It aimed to question the idea of the artist as a commodity and the future existence of art colleges under corporate control.
During the time of the show, a number of people called the estate agents interested in buying the property. The estate agents responded to the installation in different ways.
