Art Rental is a co-creative intervention, which highlights the relationship between the artist, the artwork, and the audience. The artist, Sahar Te, becomes the object rented to the highest bidder who by signing the rental agreement becomes the artist. All the rights of the art made during the rental time is reserved for the final bidder/artist.
Art Rental considers the nature of the art market, commodification of the art object, the objectification of self, and the politics of ownership.
