'THINGS' A NEW PROJECT BY MATTHIEU LAURETTE. ANYONE CAN BECOME A COLLECTOR NOW!
A new project by Matthieu Laurette
Matthieu Laurette is launching a new ongoing project entitled "Things" following the opening of "Global Demix Studio Paris" in January 2010.
"Things" is a curated, ongoing collection of objects selected by the artist and sponsored by international collectors. Anyone can become a collector!
Collectors pay the retail price of objects chosen by the artist and in return, receive a unique original photo of each object plus a certificate of authenticity.
The objects acquired with collector monies belong to Matthieu Laurette and will be used on a daily basis, becoming part of Laurette's everyday life in the new " Global Demix Studio Paris ".
Objects can either be chosen by the artist according to any donation amount, or collectors can select from a list of pre-selected and priced objects on Galerie Lafayette giftlist website.
Collectors can sponsor objects such as a vintage tripod floor lamp designed by Serge Mouille (10.000 €), an Apple Macbook Pro (2249,00 €), an Epson Stylus Pro printer (1668,42€), a Brandt washing machine/dryer (905 €), a vintage Gispen metal storage unit designed by Cordemeyer, (650 €), a Makita hammer driver-drill kit (580 €), an air purifier designed by Mathieu Lehanneur (149 €), a Muji toilet brush (10,50 €)...
Donations start at 500 euros*
*Smaller amounts are accepted as well and will contribute to «collective purchases». Contributors to «collective purchases » will receive photograph of the object they contributed together with a signed an numbered certificate of authenticity stating how many people contributed to the purchase of the object and the amount you spent.
Ask for our young collector Facebook info kit!
Accepted forms of payment include: paypal, bank transfers, check or cash.
