When in 1961 the artist Piero Manzoni made 90 cans similar to those used for tinned meat and applied the label ‘Merda d’Artista’ to them, the art world was invested by Manzoni’s subversive wave. In sixty years, the art system has changed and so has the expressive power of works, new virtual worlds have even sprung up in which art can live and it is there that artist Fè (Federica Sutti) has chosen to realise her own homage to the original work, with an NFT called ‘Crypto Merda d’Artista‘.

The artist has brought the work into digital, taking up its main elements, such as the packaging and label.
The new work consists of a 25-second video loop that also cites the previous work in its choice of sales methods. Artist’s Crypto Shit’ will in fact be released on the NFT artwork circuit on 29 May, with a drop starting at 12 noon. Fè will give more information in the coming weeks, but another point of contact with Manzoni’s work is the price. In fact, at the time, the artist sold the cans (30g in weight) at the current price of pure gold, and Federica Sutti will make her own 30MB version available at the equivalent value of 30 grams of gold in crypto currencies.
