Fact or …?

How much would you pay for a slice of pickle from a McDonald’s cheeseburger?

Plastered on a ceiling by the juice of its ketchup?

The ceiling of the Michael Lett Gallery in Auckland?

“Pickle” is a piece described as “a sculptural gesture,” an examination of “the way value and meaning is generated between people.”

What does this mean?

It means you have walked across a stage naked but fully clothed. And that you found the exposure meaningful. And you are willing to pay for it, generating for the artist, the nearly $6,300 in asking price. You just made this art.
