16: Face Value Brixton
The 7-Year Itch


Mixed media on paper
12 x 17.25 inches

Market stall performance for Flypitch, Brixton Market, London (curator: Indra Khanna), 05/07/03.

As in number 7, I re-face real English banknotes (now featuring Fry, Darwin and Elgar) with portrait drawings of street market visitors. This time, however, the project is Arts Council funded, and I issue no circulation contracts.
My customers can choose to keep their personalised cash Ė and pay a 50% commission fee on top of their banknotesí face value.
