Installation of 10 books & 1 companion video
Paper & digital
25 x 35 cm per page & 13 min

The Consolations of Museology investigates everyday problems by engaging the discourses of museum studies, architectural design and book art. This book-and-video installation proposes 10 hypothetical museums that celebrate personal failures: 
  1. The Great Hall of Rejects; 
  2. Window Shopper's Union; 
  3. Museum for the Frustrated; 
  4. Centre of Dependency; 
  5. A Loser's Respite; 
  6. Federation of Failures; 
  7. Institute of Contemporary Fools; 
  8. Pandemonium of the Perfect Mess; 
  9. The Mishappen Collective, and 
  10. The House of Escape Artists. 
This work is part of Mutating Organisation / Organising Mutation, one of the independent projects of the Farewell to Post-Colonialism: The 3rd Guangzhou Triennial 2008, held at Guangdong Museum of Art, during 6 Sep - 16 Nov 2008.

Всем привет!

Недавно перед мной встала задача, куда деть накопишиеся [b]европоддоны[/b], или еще их называют [b]Паллеты[/b],
[b]Поддоны[/b], [b]Европаллет[/b]ы Размеры 800*1200, 1000*1200- Это [u]Тара Пром назначения[/u].
Немного предистории.
Сам я тружусь кладовщиком на складе. Нам приходит много продукции на [b]Европоддонах[/b],
товар продаем а поддоны остаются, у нас возник вопрос куда их девать.
Раньше мы их сжигали.
Потом мне подсказали, что за поддоны можно получить деньги.
Начал обзванивать фирмы везде были цены дешевые,
потом знакомые мне подсказали, что в Челябинске есть такая Контора "[b]Уралсклад[/b]",
около 10 лет на Рынке Промышленной Тары с прекрасной репутацией.
Я нашел их сайт в интернет - [url=http://www.uralsklad.ru]www.uralsklad.ru[/url] и позвонил по тел. +7(351) 233-07-14.
Буквально через час подъехал их представитель, Авто с Логотипом "[url=http://www.uralsklad.ru]Поддоны Челябинск[/url]".
Цены закупочные оказались самые высокие в г. Челябинске.
Все цивилизовано грузчики загрузили [b]Паллеты[/b] ешё и лом поддонов купили, расчитались на месте наличными.
Про другие фирмы я узнавал либо Цены низкие, либо Бракуют много, да и денег от них не дождешься.

Так что если у вас завалялись [b]европоддоны[/b], не торопитесь их выбрасывать, лучше обменяйте их на деньги.
