"My gift to you is a sweater made entirely from my own navel lint"

In a somewhat too-obvious tip of the hat to Piero Manzomi's Merda d'artista, 30g, Mikkel is auctioning off his navel lint over at Shädy Äcres. Susanne says it is merely a matter of time before someone calls the Shädy bunch conceptual artists. It was indeed! This is conceptual art at the highest level. In a retro-ironic flourish, Mikkel has taken the readymade into the age of eBay while continuing the open rhizomatic structure of anti-art in the new network of the "web". This (re)opens new possibilities for questioning the conceptual art form within the framework of the digital. Get it while it lasts!
