Asian discount, 1993 by Santo Sterne by Ryan Gander, 2011
A day-glow yellow curtain is draped from the ceiling to floor of the gallery wall, in front of which (mounted on the wall, set in front of the curtain) a
neon sign depicting seven marks in bright blue light. The marks could be interpreted in numerous ways; as teeth, counting marks of days of the week
or as a sewn up scar or wound. This artwork was made in Mexico City where the artist still lives. The work is a relatively lesser known work of the
artist’s oeuvre, however it has been exhibited in 1994 at Eleco, Mexico City. The work has been described as a tongue in cheek comment of the new
found wealth and present time orientation of the Mexican nouveau riche gentry. Previously shown in the exhibition “Field of meaning”.
