A red cotton shirt once belonging to Andy Warhol was cut into 57 pieces. Each piece was hand-numbered and archived on turquoise satin in a glass fronted box. The boxed shirt fragments were distributed amongst 57 people, along with a certificate of authenticity signed by Andy Warhol’s nephew (who the shirt had previously belonged to) and myself. Included in each box was a needle threaded with red cotton. When the shareholders accidentally meet one another the shirt can be slowly sewn back together.
1/57th of Andy Warhol was commissioned by CSA-PGH, a new distribution method for original works of art. Documentary photography: Tom Little. Photograph of hands: Jenn Myers
