2018 / A collaborative work by Pollinator (Jiten Thukral, Sumir Tagra and Prayas Abhinav) / Episode I: Collection Bureau was installed at India Art Fair 2018


The project wanted to critique the process through which value is formulated and established in the art context. What are the markers of such a value? These markers are supposed to exist in pedagogy but are not transparent or continuous with they manifest as criteria in practice. The motivating forces that inspire people to collect or in some other way value a work are very often to do with perception, social standing and exchange value. The collection that Pollinator initiated, made this process open, transparent and rational.
