FELT Space is pleased to present "The Unauthorised Collection of John Kaldor" (that) was developed specifically for FELT Space as an attempt to develop value in original recreations of artworks.

"I often think about people who collect artwork and how their collections acquire cultural and capital significance through personal stories, exhibition histories and auctions, to name a few. This led me to the John Kaldor Family Collection of contemporary art that was donated to the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Australia. I continue to marvel at John Kaldor's persistence and dedication to contemporary art but I also wondered if I could develop significance in my own versions of his artworks if I had them re-created by the painting fabrication company I work with in China and so I organized my own exhibition of the Kaldor Collection." - David De Boer

David De Boer was born in 1980 in Los Angeles and studied at the State University of New York at Purchase and participated in the Studio Program at Empire State College, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree. He moved back to Los Angeles in 2007 and shortly after began working on a Master of Fine Arts degree and Museum Studies and Curatorial degree at California State University of Long Beach. His interest is in exploring issues of artistic authorship, aesthetics and taste to examine how classification impacts value and meaning. He has exhibited and curated locally and nationally at galleries such as XY and Z in Minneapolis and has had solo exhibitions at the Pacific Design Center and Raid Projects in Los Angeles. Upcoming exhibitions include this solo project at FELT Space in Adelaide, Australia and a curatorial project titled "Significant Ordinaries" at the University Art Museum at California State University, Long Beach.
