From the publisher: "The exhibition conceived and carried out site specifically by Christian Boltanski for the city of Valencià, creates an intimate relationship between these central ideas that control his work and the specific characteristics of the venue for which it has been designed. The exhibition has been baptized Compra-Venta (Buy and Sell) and is made up of a large number of private and personal objects (furniture, lamps, toys...) that many people from the city and the surrounding area are interested in selling. These objects have been collected, stored and distributed by the artist himself in the venue of the Almudin to be viewed for possible acquisition by anybody who is interested...As the available articles are sold they will be covered by a white sheet to denote that they are no longer for sale. They will be partially or totally covered form view and should all the articles be sold eventually, we would be faced with the sight of a room completely covered in white sheets like a mortuary full of stored corpses."
