(my) Imaginary Collectors Buy List @abc 2012

If collecting is a virus- I think I got it: Acquire unique objects that will guide, inspire, comfort and maybe even bore and enrage you throughout your life. Objects you and you alone possess (and are possessed by). I get it. To enrich my imaginary collection started at Art Cologne this year I browsed abc yesterday. These are the works I would not want to leave/live without. Total value of my imaginary second step into collecting: 124.000euro

the artists interpretations of 6 super hero capes; you can buy separately, I -as is imaginary- will buy all.

3. Ulrike Heise@ Helga Maria Klosterfelde

The artist's partial reconstruction of worm holes (different sized worms- different sized holes), sorted by size here,  as met in her trip to ...( where I forgot)
