from De-corator press release July 2005:
/ You are De-corator is a remake of an Ikea catalogue to include
the work of up to 70 contemporary artists. Through simple alterations,
using the Ikea catalogue as a site in which to collage in artwork, we
feel that we can make an elegant comment on mass productions and
the role of the artist in today's society.
handmade edition is the very opposite of the mass produced
Ikea handout. The new catalogue allows people to arrange their own
exhibition against various domestic backdrops. An exhibition will
accompany the publication.

come together through Dali/Central St Martins College of art.
