Phung-Tien Phan at Bonner Kunstverein

Phung-Tien Phan at Bonner Kunstverein

The art meme of placing a thing on another thing. Foregrounding the ghost who've arranged the space, the artist's hand, both magnifying their leave while highlighting the staging of the encounter. Like Broodthaer's potted palms casting the scene in its artifice, it makes the ghosts come out, those who constructed its object for you, tombs where flowers have been left.
