Not For Love Nor Money 2012
Matt Self-Adhesive Vinyl
18 x 2.75m

Art and money are often intertwined in ways that are unproductive and diminishing. Drawing on the abstract visual imagery and functional digital purpose of QR codes - a matrix barcode widely used in products and consumer advertising - Not For Love Nor Money curates an exhibition of sixty of the most expensive, heavily insured and highly guarded artworks to date. A collection which even for all the love and money in the world would be impossible to bring together.
