’til Death Do Us Part


During yesterday’s Frieze Art Fair, artist Carey Young signed a limited edition art project called, Donorcard – a version of the wallet-sized British organ donor card.  Visitors were able to take a card for free with the requirement that they countersign it in order for the donorcard to become art. From then on, the owners and the artist enter into a contract, which ends only with the death of the artist and/or the owner.  In a seemingly symbolic gesture, the artist attempts to make the artwork viable as an artwork only during the life of the artist and owner.
