Artist
Agnieska Kurant

Phantom Estate furthers Kurant's investigation into hybrid authorship. The work is a small plinth-display-case-museum architecture developed in collaboration Didier Faustino). It's a miniature institution, consisting of several phantom works. Pieces based on unfinished, barely mentioned and rumored works of deceased conceptual artists such as Marcel Broodthaers, Guy de Cointet, Alighiero Boetti, Lee Lozano, Edward Krasinski and Gino de Dominicis. The work includes an artificial intelligence unit inspired by the artist's dialogue with the AI scientist Luc Steels, the director of the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the Vrije Universiteit in Brussels. Phantom Estate is conceived as an intelligent artwork which has its own agency and agenda.
