Gabriel Kuri, Mexico City, Brussels, now living in L.A.[2006] Voucher in Triplicate

The artist takes everyday objects and uses them in his sculptures. Or, he transforms a piece of ephemera like a ticket or receipt into a work of art.  Here three vouchers are transformed into handwoven wall hangings. He comments on the economy and how carelessly we all receive vouchers, or tickets or receipts for everyday necessities…while in other parts of the world there is no money to buy such things.
