FREE MANIFESTA: PROJECTS: HOW CAN THE ARTIST BE GENEROUS
HOW CAN THE ARTIST BE GENEROUS - THE BANK OF TIME

VALENTINA FERRARESE



HOW CAN THE ARTIST BE GENEROUS? THE BANK OF TIME is a no profit public action by Valentina Ferrarese (Italy) on the occasion of Free Manifesta, Frankfurt. The Bank of Time action is part of IDP project research.

The artist proposes a public action which will take place the 10 of August from 10.00 am until 6.00 pm in the outdoors area of Frankfurt am Main, near the
Free Manifesta Headquarters.

The action functions as a "bank of time"thanks to which people can ask the artist to do a task, an appointment, a job instead of them and for free. The people will be asked (not obligated!) to remain in the place of the artist.

People will get informed of this possibility by newspapers annoucement and flyng copies of it.

WARNING!
The artist will be recognizable by wearing a shirt with the words "IDP - Bank of Time 10.00 am - 6.00 pm"and by sitting behind an ordinary table along the sidewalk. All the day action will be documented and collected in the Free Manifesta Headquaters and in the web site. (www.digiland.iol.it/otherplacesIDP)

The Bank of Time is an short action by which the art act becomes a context of public domain.

The artist underlines the necessity of an open relationship between art, public space and everyday life, in which openess can be achieved only by a "generous way of doing art". It concerns not only the relationship between artist and people, but also the one between the artist and his "artwork"in which the artist should be able to lose control of the final result.


HOW TO LOCATE

The intervention will take place the 10 of August from 10.00 am until 6.00 pm in the outdoor area of Frankfurt am Main, near the FREE MANIFESTA HEADQUARTERS.
