Button, 2010

The Indian artist Subodh Gupta had several objects that he had collected at various flea markets over the years enlarged by a factor of approximately ten. The brass button was produced in bronze in our branch in Shanghai. In a workshop in the southeast of China that cooperates with us, a perforated sheet and a gas-powered kettle were also created in hammered chrome steel. All the objects were then finally patinated to look old. The Hauser & Wirth gallery in New York presented all of the objects together in a solo-exhibition in 2011.
