trade

2016

A series of micro-narratives, drawing, collage and investopedia definitions

trade attempts to reconcile the desire to feel valued with the reality of being consumable.

Drawing parallels between metaphors used to describe investors and practices within stockmarkets, and observations of embodied subjects attempting to find love-after-the-internet, the work considers the migration of language and behaviour from market-based systems to personal relationships. 

Elke Finkenauer is a visual artist of New Zealand and German descent, living and working in Glasgow and Auckland
