Dimanche Rouge will be displaying Swiss artist Steven Schoch’s installation titled Wertschöpfung III (Dokument), or Value Creation III (The Document) from July 24th to August 11th at the Plateforme Gallery. The installation features a series of documents rendered during a performance festival in Bern Switzerland, when Schoch signed 220 Documents in a timeframe of 8 hours. Each individual document contains work specifications and the sentence “Through opening the original Envelope, the value and validation of the document expires,” printed in German. The documents are also marked with serial numbers and combined into series’ of ten documents.
Value creation III (The Document) is the third piece in a series of works that the Schoch began in early 2013. In this series, Schoch explores the peculiarities, rituals and conditions of creating value in a wide range of themes and medias. The pieces always refer to the daily activities and occupations of the artist himself.
