Andrii Dostliev:
Einkaufszettel (Shopping Lists), 2020


Watercolour on paper, size A3, edition of 2 each

Several years ago I started collecting (as in “occasionally picking up in supermarkets”) discarded shopping lists without any particular purpose in mind, out of pure fascination for written words.

Now I am redrawing them in watercolours — as artefacts from the times when our shopping lists didn’t include 10 packs of toilet paper and canned bigos for an elderly neighbour.

The idea of exchanging them for food listed in the image sounds fun though I’m not exactly sure how to do that given all the circumstances.
