Felix Gonzalez-Torres

Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Untitled (1991), Billboard, dimensions vary with installation.


One day after work I saw this poster on a billboard. It caught my eye straight away and I thought how great it would be in our bedroom. I had forgotten about it but when I passed it a few days again I thought I must call the poster agency to ask whether I could order one. The lady on the phone was very friendly and said that this would be possible. When I asked about the price she said that I could have one for free but that they are always grateful for sweets. So that’s how it came home with me and now it decorates the wall in our bedroom. I am planning to mount it on a canvas panel. This is an example that unmade beds can be quite artful.
