love for sale
RYAN STANDFEST love for sale

LOVE FOR SALE, after both the Cole Porter song and another by the Talking Heads, is meant as an ironic gesture signaling the paradox of selling created need; that is, to make consumers want what you tell them to love.

The artists in LOVE FOR SALE have responded to this concept of the image as a generator of need; art as commodity. The work serves to parody precious art objects, art market or capital market strategies in general, and commercial advertising and it’s various techniques of seduction. Considering these various means of engagement with an audience can give way to, as the Cole Porter tune goes, “Old love, new love, anything but true love.”
