It Takes Money...

08.10.2013 to 06.11.2013

Herrero’s concept for his month long residency at ´ace consists of fabricating his own currency in print/paper form, which will also function as a work of art in itself, made through graphic techniques, from original designs."It takes Money to Make Money" explores the aesthetic value of money as well as its properties as an exchange system within an artistic concept.


Divisions between categories, between concepts, between territories are unstable. I explore those places where boundaries blur and look into the way symbolic representations, can be transfered from one space to another, converted and abstracted, only to be created anew. I generate new associations from displaced elements, exploring relations which transcend their initial context, into larger systems.
