Cut. Copy. Paste (2009)


Aldi shopping trolley, earth, cat grass, water

Cut.Copy.Paste (2009) is a fictitious supermarket offer from Aldi supermarket- a European-wide enterprise known for its cheap limited time offers. The work questions the mechanical copy-paste transplantation of culture and identity within a globalised world, as well as ridiculing the privatisation of natural and public resources.

Displacement of space and the dis/re-location of people, has been an issue of increasing importance over the last 10 years of globalisation and centuries of imperialism. Definitions are not so clear-cut anymore, and this is when meaning and representation become more and more important.
