ALLreadymade is about things that are all ready there, about things that have probably been already done, about all these and probably about something already more – something else. A word game that has its origins in the avant-garde phrase – “readymade”, those ready- made series objects exhibited by artists per se and which, once recontextualized, acquires artistic values and new meanings.
