Branding on leather
Size Variable

Brand presents five branded hides that delve into the symbolic and arbitrary quality of value systems. The work also examines our conceptual and transcultural associations with numbers. Drawing inspiration from various sources – including a meeting with a former tattooed Holocaust survivor and an ongoing interest in the work of Fluxus artist On Kawara’s use of numbers and dates – Meldibekov investigates the process of numbering as a process of documenting historical recordings.
