Rhea Myers Rendered Certificates of Inauthenticity for 3D-Printed Canonical Readymades

“I grabbed an old Sol LeWitt certificate of authenticity, got some Wite-Out, whited out the details of his work and just quickly wrote in the details of mine and photocopied it a few times.”
– Blockchain artist Rhea Myers, on the origins of Certificate of Inauthenticity (2020). From 2011 to 2012, Myers commissioned 3D-printed Shareable Readymades from art history’s canon and rendered “sarcastic certificates” upon the exhibiting gallery’s request. “I don’t own the copyright in the works,” Myers notes, “that’s part of the concept of the project.”
