Two pieces in the offices of Remedy Pharmaceuticals in Manhattan, New York, sent to me a couple of weeks ago by the happy owners.
Remedy Pharmaceuticals are specialized in treating the effects of a stroke (CNS).
The 'INTELLIGENCE' sculpture was commissioned especially for the entrance of the new offices.
The '20th Century Spam' sculpture found it's way to the collection, here shown with drawings by spanish artist Vincente Aguado.
For the occasion poet and performer Gino van Weenen has written a wonderful poem. Like the installation Streetwalker Sluice this poem is in remembrance of the former street prostitution area in Rotterdam West.
The poem is placed behind one of the windows of the gallery space for the visitor and passerby to enjoy.
Poem and a photographic print have been combined in an edition (of 10) which is available through the artist, the poet or Galerie Lecq. It is available for the very special price of € 20 plus shipping.
