The indirect exchange of uncertain value was developed by Joanne Tatham and Tom Oâ€™Sullivan with collective in Edinburgh for the 2011 Edinburgh Art Festival. The work was sited at Fettes College, one of Scotlandâ€™s most expensive independent schools. New commissions by Elizabeth Price and Chris Evans were presented within and alongside constructions of a cat and a boot positioned either side of the Fettes College entrance. The work was funded from Creative Scotlandâ€™s Public Art Fund and could only be accessed through a scripted tour of the grounds.
The cat and the boot have since been remade as 1:20 scale ceramic plant holders, produced in collaboration with GOODD, Glasgow and The Modern Institute/Toby Webster Ltd. Produced in an edition of ten, with two artist proofs, these were first exhibited at Independent Art Fair in New York.
