The artist

This artwork is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity



Estimate €10,000 - €12,000


Moongold features a series of photos of the moon taken by the artist. In these images, the moon appears very small and is gilded with Moon Gold leaf. These photographs are part of an ongoing project in which the artist takes mobile phone photographs of the moon whenever she sees it in the sky. The printed and gilded photographs form a diary of her everyday travels, and an incomplete calendar of the phases of the moon. This calendar, despite its gaps and irregularities, is displayed chronologically, becoming a functioning record of the apparition of the moon and the passing of time. On each photograph, a location and time are connected with the ascending or descending star.
