GOLD EXCHANGE, 5th Istanbul Biennale (Fringe,1997)
BM Contemporary Art Center, Istanbul, Turkey
Curator: Beral Madra
Gold X Change was included in the fringe programme of the 5th Istanbul Biennale. Ordinary objects were turned into golden objects of desire by gilding with 18 karat gold.
It almost caused a scandal, when in 1997, it coincided with violent protests against the exploitative and destructive policies of the international gold-mining industries.
