I wanted to buy this!
Last year, contemporary Iraninan artist Shadi Ghadirian's "Like Everyday" caught my eye with its rubber glove domesticated glory, but no surprises here, my wallet and my heart sank when the upturned nose gallery owner sneered at me and "casually" mentioned how much it was to shoo me away. The faceless portrait series was recently sold at an auction in Dubai for US$37,500 - US$12,500. Yikes. :(
Tickets to ART HK 10 are HK$200 at the door.
