reproductionIn the spring of 2001, HLH’s Matthew Nash — in collaboration with artist Joel Alpern — created “Reproduction.” This piece was performed at 1926 Gallery in Chicago.

For “Reproduction,” the artists secured a photocopier and put a sign on the sidewalk reading “free copies.” Anyone passing by could ask for free copies of any piece of paper, no matter the content. The only stipulation was that the artists would also keep a copy for themselves.

The final presentation of the work included 3 photographs of the artists working with the public, and a book of photocopies of the pages that had been copied during the project.
