Description:



CATALOGUES-ERRATA proposes a new reading of the auctions art catalogue. It is composed by PAGES, FOLDER CARDS, SHEETS and GRAPHICS.

The catalogue is a list or a number of classified objects according to either kind of proximity; in this case this one is examined through a perspective that proposes to reinterpret the given information. This takes place by means of the creation of a pattern and it is taking like departure point indicating rules from the art market system. The pattern is created on the sale average price*.

These numerical values of prices are transferred to values in centimeters, and it produces a sort of CANNON.

The artworks pictures in the original catalogues are submitted to this CANNON, it creates a new code of representation with changes that are demonstrated in expansion or contraction processes (by its horizontal coordinate) according to exceeds or depreciates this sale average price.

The PAGES are second versions of pages from the Sotheby´s and Christie´s catalogue. The changes just are produced by these economics variables that alter the dimension of the images and by consequence the wide one of some pages. The FOLDER CARDS, GRAPHICS and SHEETS complete the process of codes displacement of the perceptual changes.

* On the base of total annual 2008 sale average price on Contemporary Art and Post-War Departaments, Christie´s and Sotheby´s galleries.
