Do You Art Me?
Coin Collection 2018-2019
Each coin is one-of-a-kind, composed uniquely, with a self-portrait, the year and the question "Do You Art Me"?
The coins represent the way art is commoditized and traded between collectors, galleries and museums. Art is a traded asset, but it also contains physical, emotional and historic values just like the coins. Art is a way for an artist to communicate to himself and to others beyond words.
As an individual beginning artist, Chana Hauser declares her work as a traded asset to be collected. She also invites the visitors to create their own coin, to be buried in their yard.
Materials and technique: porcelain coins, gold, decal finish, Incorporated metal, 3D printed plastic stamp, pressed glass.
