OK-XA — Date Painting
2015—in fieri

In anticipation of his next publication, we present a preview of a selection of photographs from the series OK-XA — Date Painting (2015—in fieri) by Xavier Aballí. The photographs are part of a project in the making, dedicated to On Kawara’s Date Painting which consists of a series of paintings, each with a significant date in relation to the recipient of the work. The projects also forsees that, in exchange for the artwork, the new owner must send Aballí a photo of the work in the space it has been installed. The images, in a layered and evocative game of references, take inspiration the photographic project of Candida Höfer who, between 2004 and 2007, photographed On Kawara’s Date Painting in the homes of private collectors all over the world.
