untitled 2021 (go for the good spirit)

Rirkrit Tiravanija’s imperative “Go for the good spirit”, printed on an enamel sign, comes up against an overall sense of cluelessness and symptoms of fatigue after more than a year of the pandemic. A fourteen-page fax, printed on Japanese Kamiko paper, lists all of his suggestions for optimizing the space. Interested collectors can hang the accompanying enamel-sign multiple in their home and use the reproductions of the fax instructions to optimize the overall energy in their own spaces. Social practice, a central feature of Tiravanija’s work, is carried over into individual and private space at a time, when only very limited collective projects and social gatherings are possible due to the pandemic. For the time being, we are all following suggestion # 7: “During difficult times do breathing exercises in the light of the moon.”
