TORONTO BASED PERFORMANCE ARTIST LISA ANITA WEGNER RESPONDED TO NEW YORK ARTIST LANA NEWSTROM'S RECENT SUCCESS WITH COLLECTORS, SELLING HER INVISIBLE ART.
Lisa immediately was inspired by this bold manoeuvre and teamed up with curators Fritz Snitz and Candy Warhol who started started charging art collectors to think about Wegner.
In the first week alone, collectors in New York, Berlin and Saltzburg have paid out 3 Million to be the first to own the thought of Lisa Anita Wegner.
Lisa is represented by Haus of Dada in Toronto, although if you want to be in the ranks of these collectors you had better hurry. After a mere week there is already talk of limiting the purchases. An anonymous German collector is thrilled that he holds the first gallery sanctified thought, purchased at $300,000 CDN. He owns the thought of Lisa Anita Wegner shown below. "Many others are allowed to think it, but I own it- I paid for it," the collector boasts"We don't want Lisa saturating people's minds, we want them wanting more. So we will stop the sales next week and then "Memories of LAW" Ownership Certificates can only be viewed be during upcoming March 9th performance at the Museum of Modern Art or next season as a guest performance at the Art Gallery of Ontario says her manager who goes by his street name Wheels.
Lisa Anita Wegner will not let us forget her. Her Thought Ownership Certificates have become a hot ticket item for their playfulness, audacity and absurdity.
