Text from artist’s book: A_Selection_Of_66_From_JHG : Unconsumable Global Luxury Dispersion (2018)
It introduces the terms unconsumable, global, luxury and dispersion, in relation to my artist’s practice and my upcoming exhibition at the Hansard Gallery.
Unconsumable Global Luxury Dispersion (UGLyD) is a project that collects and disperses artwork titles related to an exhibition history. In collaboration with the John Hansard Gallery, Walter van Rijn has aggregated more than 5000 artwork titles from work exhibited in the gallery at the Highfield Campus from the first exhibition in 1980 till the last in 2016.
