The Albury Wodonga Superfiction 1993
Collaboration Peter Hill and J.J. Voss (Photographer)
Made in Palestine Made in Israel
- A fictitous team of artists created by Peter Hill as part of his on-going Superfiction The Art Fair Murders. One artist is Israeli, the other Palestinian though neither ever reveals their true name. For over thirty years they have been photographing artists and curators around the world at evetns such as The Venice Biennale, documenta, the Munster Sculpture Project, and the Sydney Biennale. Double portraits are then produced under the name “Art World Fan Club” with one portrait designated “Made in Palestine” and the other “Made in Israel”. Peter Hill originally decided which artist would represent “Palestine” or “Israel” by the throw of a dice (see The Dice Man) – but now he invites the real artist to throw the dice. These works can appear in various scales from postcards to billboards. Artists so far included: Martin Creed; Marina Abramovic; Dennis Hopper; Martin Kippenberger; Joseph Kosuth; Hermann Nitsch; The Raminginimg Artists and Burial Poles; James Lee Byers; John Armleder and Sylvie Fleury; Res Ingold, Callum Innes, Fumio Nanjo, and Heri Dono.
