ANYTHING FOR ANY PRICE
2012 INSTALLATION
RUBBISH FROM MARKET ON CART
130 x 70 x 62 cm

Trading her number in for a pig’s head to take pride of place on a marble slab. A slab on a slab. ‘Anything for any price!’, ‘Anything for any price – I make special price for you!’ Everything on the cart is rubbish. A gentleman wants to make a purchase but she’s not sure she can part with it – she’ll let him know later, and make him a special price. ‘Are you scared? Do you need anything?’Anything for any price. She has everything on the cart. Everything? Everything. Would you like to buy something? Come on –have this present. It’s just a present – a flower for your girlfriend or mother? They’re only £1. What has she got? Anything. A pig’s head. Everything. She has a cart of presents for exchange  – nothing at all is really free.
The end result is £5.20 in cash and some sugar and a pig’s head – successful sales pitches.
