Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam buys recent Jan Henderikse
In the run up to the big ZERO exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum in Amterdam, the museum made another purchase of a work by Jan Henderikse. This time it is a work from the series "Shredded Value".
Money as reject and readymade has always played a very important role in the work of Jan Henderikse. In 1979 Henderikse got from the US central bank three large bales of shredded dollar bills. One of them he used in large temporary installations, one was used in artworks and multiples and one is kept in its entirety as an artwork.
The Stedelijk showed much interest in this work and stressed with her purchase the importance of Shredded Value in the oeuvre of Henderikse. They bought a large plexibox with shredded money.
