Lucky Fetish

2015 / video; 2" loop;

"The Mystical character of commodities does not originate [...] in their use value", writes Marx in his introduction to the theory of Commodity Fetishism. The work gathers a mass produced object, believed to posses the mystical value of bringing good luck, with a Karl Marx bust, both of them commodities with no practical value per se.
