ABOUT THIS WORK
This work refers to speculation in the art market, and art collectors. The lottery ticket has a strong emotional value mixed with a speculative financial value. « Pop » element sold in mass quantities, it is rendered unique due to its number, much like an etching or a limited series object. It is also protected against forgery. A playful object, it can create an addiction or change a life in a matter of seconds. Accessible financially and emotionally, everyone can project beyond the ticket, towards the dream, the excitement, the fantasy, the speculation, the interrogation, the mystery… The « gesture » of not scratching the ticket and sealing it in the resin confers on it virtual and eternal value.
