Louise Neaderland: "Handmade tissue box containing 50 1-ply sheets of all kinds of news and advertising in several different languages. One side flap remains unglued to allow for refilling. These newsprint items are meant to fade and ultimately disintegrate. It is the artist's intention to comment on the fact that we learn very little from history and are forced to repeat the same mistakes; that advertisements for five hundred dollar shoes sit cheek by jowl with news of the latest disasters; that all items, in any language, seem to carry the same weight, and that they are all, in a sense, disposable." Measures approximately 6.25" x 3.75" x 2". Top cut open previously held together with a (now cut) piece of clear tape.

Price: $250.00
