Press Release.


CHRI$ D€NNIS – THE $€LLOUT PROJECT (COINCIDING WITH MANIFESTA11)
JEDLITSCHKA GALLERY, ZÜRICH. JUNE 9 – SEPTEMBER 10, 2016

OBVIOUSLY, it is MY privilege to call myself an ARTIST. There is NOTHING I like more, than to share my art with the public. Financial reward(?) or compensation (?) is of NO INTEREST to me, and I would gladly GIVE AWAY my paintings to ANYONE and EVERYONE.
Unfortunately, that is NOT POSSIBLE.

So, with this in mind, and to coincide with MANIFESTA 11 (and their theme ‘What people do for money’), I have devised the $€LLOUT PROJ€CT.
A NEW CURRENCY HAS BEEN CREATED.

It will be distributed, deposited and handed-out FREELY, around Zürich, at MANIFESTA locations and other destinations dedicated to furthering the enjoyment of ART for ART’s SAKE (these will include Art Basel, Satellite Fairs and Museums).
BUT WHAT’S IT WORTH?

Any recipient of this hand signed and individually numbered, currency should bring it to the JEDLITSCHKA GALLERY at 52 SEEFELDSTRASSE, 8008 ZÜRICH between June, 9th and September, 10th 2016 (Vernissage June 9th, 5 -8pm).
IF their number matches one of the 9 randomly selected, they will be declared a WINNER! and invited to choose one of the 9 specially commissioned paintings.

The artist has tried to produce something for every TASTE.

Titles include; Celebrity, “Street” (Urban) art, Genitalia (Male and Female), Mountains, Social Issues, Text-based, Irony and  Neon.
Potential WINNERS! are urged not to delay. The realities of modern life have forced the artist for NO OTHER REASON than practical necessity, to reserve the right to $€LLOUT. - ALL PRIZES ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.

The buyer has the option to select 1 of 9 possible prices according to their ability and depth of pocket  feeling, for the art (world). Each price can only be selected ONCE.
Additionally, any TRUE LOVER of art, with the foresight and means to do so, is INVITED to purchase the collection as a WHOLE (including the fastidiously painted price list).  This will place them in an enviable position of controlling the future of and all access to the project. The participation of the PUBLIC and any interaction they may desire to have with the work, will cease without the express consent of this GENEROUS - ART GUARDIAN.
