Artist Statement:

“’ART SPECULATOR’ value your own work, buy your own artwork” is an ironic project that draw the attention toward the system behind the art market, proposing itself as a actual tool for artist promotion. Like a Matryoshka doll this project is conceived as platform (ART SPECULATOR) inside a platform (#exstrange) inside a platform (eBay), and instead then be purely a content, it propose a dialogic relation with the main concept of #exstrange and its intent to question the art commodification. This argument is a central part of my current activity in which I necessitate to keep an ambiguous position in order to take a wide and non judgemental overview.
