DAAN VAN GOLDEN, untitled / Souvenir, 2017
screen print on fabric: 10,5 x 12,9 cm / gold envelope: 11 x 15,6 cm
“Souvenir” recto and initial “D” verso on outer envelope: 12 x 18,1 cm
poor condition; scuffing, stains
This gold envelope with screen print on vinyl cloth depicts a characteristic dark red Daisy pattern that Daan van Golden often uses in his paintings and photographs. There is no sign of origin.
A white outer envelope entitled “Souvenir” contains the edition. At the back side a ‘D’ in print refers to the first name of the artist. The envelope’s colour in gold alludes with the surname of Daan van Golden. The grey line frame on the white envelope suggests that this item was perhaps a thank object presented to people for their compassion and sympathy after Daan van Golden deceased in 2017. Any form of origin of publication is lacking.

Opposite to printed matter for Daan van Golden when it comes to making a photo edition there is not really an interest in limiting the edition, although sometimes he uses edition numbers, as in ‘Violen, 1991-2012′ Basically he prefers to have for instance the amount of a photo edition defined by the amount of buyers during an exhibition. Re-using a work from even decades ago is another modus operandi. In this sense the editions by Daan van Golden are contextualized and re-usable any time in whatever form or technique.

verso signed, dated, numbered
edition 25 (unknown if the edition of 25 was issued as published)
Opposite to printed matter for Daan van Golden when it comes to making a photo edition there is not really an interest in limiting the edition, although sometimes he uses edition numbers. Basically he prefers to have for instance the amount of a photo edition defined by the amount of buyers during an exhibition. Re-using a work from even decades ago is another modus operandi. In this sense the editions by Daan van Golden are contextualized and for him re-usable any time in whatever form or technique. And seen in this light, the following story was often put forward by Van Golden:
An emperor commissioned a team of Greek and a team of Chinese artists each to paint a wall. A partition was made between the two with a wall so that they could not prematurely see each other’s work. When the Chinese finished their job, their mural was unveiled. A few weeks later, the Greeks had finished their work also. The emperor was invited to come and to see the result. They had polished their wall surface so that the painting of the Chinese reflected softly in it.
The image featured in this print could be in some way or the other the image of an Eastern-like figure with arms high in the air mirrored in a pond or lake?
