chain 71 cm / letters 2 cm, box
published by Galerie de Multiples, Paris, France
Claude Closky is known for making Appropriation art using advertising, fashion and commodity items. Making a fashionable bracelet and at the same time referring to a protest movement like Dada is a kind of double Appropriation art, i.e. a kind of contamination of Prada and Dada Do It Yourself. See also Jonathan Monk’s ‘Dada Necklace’ (2012) apparently has responded to this multiple.
