Artie Vierkant’s Exploit series emphasizes the iterative nature of artmaking, calling into question the limits of the creative mind. For this work, Vierkant approached the patent holder of US Patent 6318569 B1, a magnetic storage rack designed for kitchens, for permission to create artwork based on his intellectual property. In a clever gesture, Vierkant remade the shelf in a hue that closely resembles International Klein Blue.
A major figure in Post-Internet art dialogue, Artie Vierkant lives and works in New York City. He was Artforum’s “Critics Pick” in December and will have four solo shows this year, including at the newly merged Mesler/Feuer in New York. Vierkant is represented by Untitled (New York) and New Galerie (Paris).
