Jac Leirner is a master at liberating everyday items from their function and making new objects out of them.
For the edition Leirner combines two measuring instruments — a straightedge and a level — into an art object. In the middle of the 20-centimeter-long straightedge she has attached a level. The original function of the two tools — the measuring and structuring of physical space — is no longer foregrounded. Rather, the newly created object now offers an aesthetic standard for what art can be.
Leirner rarely creates editions. We are all the more pleased to be able to offer this edition.
