PICK UP YOUR HIRST DURING ART BASEL 2018
GOOD NEWS AHEAD: After delaying months and me becoming a dad, the 200 Damien Hirst will arrive at our gallery in Basel!
VERNISSAGE «Damien Hirst for Sale»: June 11 / 5–10 pm
Come visit us at our showroom for the vernissage or anytime during Art Basel (June 11–17), buy yourself a first-edition Hirst and have a Sharkerita and some Chinese dumplings by chef Samuel Bron. I will sign your sculpture with a personal dedication.
DON'T BUY ART, BUY THE ARTIST
My business plan trumps it all. Ever since the 90ies, a Hirst is an absolute MUST for every art collector. MY Hirst sits on his toilet in your toilet. You may use it to display toilet paper or as a design object in your shower – my action-figure-size Hirst made of resin upcycles every bathroom.
More powerful still is the life-size Hirst, also available. An eyecatcher for your loft, the lobby of a private bank or the trending new pop-up gallery – the 300-kilogram sculpture constitutes any art collector’s ideal status symbol.
My Hirsts are 100% handmade in China, cheaper and more durable than any other Hirst on the art market – I vouch for it with my full name Jeremie Jean-Ferdinand Maret. With your help, I will be the world’s leading Hirst dealer!
AN ART DEALER YOU CAN TRUST
JEREMIE JEAN-FERDINAND MARET
Last year, after six years spent hopelessly fighting on the capitalist market, once more, the water was up to my neck. I had to lay low with my gallery THE PROPOSAL while loosing my unrepeated onetime success TOO FAT TO FAIL to deflation. The only thing that saved me: an invitation from Swatch to their artists residency in Shanghai.
At the very same time, in Venice, another man came out of hiding: Damien Hirst, richest artist in the world, celebrated «Young British Artist» of the 1990ies, and famous for his skillful monetary machinations in the art market, bankrolls his own comeback to the tune of 50 million pounds. Conclusion: To be successful as an artist, I need money. A lot of it!
I launched the pre-sale of my Hirsts on wemakeit.com during Art Basel and introduced my new business plan to many art collectors and money launderers – only wearing my bathrobe and slippers. In the end, I sold over 100 sculptures worth 42’000 Euros and thus financed the production of the first edition.
100% HANDMADE IN CHINA
My Hirsts are produced in a small, exquisite factory – certified by alibaba.com – near Shenzhen. The Chinese action figure manufacturers succeeded in creating astonishingly real designs. The sculptures are fully handmade, it’s my body and Damien’s head.
Be sure to get a first-edition Hirst at an absolutely amazing special price, delivered in a authentic window-packaging.
