Marco Cechet – Big Lie (t)To Interail,2004.

Big Lie (t)To Interail Marca Cecheta dokumentira njegovo putovanje po Europi u ljeto 2004. godine. U središtu rada nalazi se lažna karta za vlak, vlastitog dizajna i ručne izrade. Big Lie (t)To Interail odražava koncept pravog/lažnog te nominalnu vrijednost zajedničke normativne dokumentacije – kao što su, primjerice, karte za vlak. Na početku ovog putovanja karta je bila lažna, no svaki puta kada je kondukter potvrdi i na nju primijeni zajednička pravila koja odražavaju ovaj normativni ugovor, karta postaje prava.

Postoji sličnost između ove karte i ideje o umjetničkom djelu: kondukteri u vlaku kao posebni djelatnici potvrđuju autentičnost ove karte, baš kao što djelatnici u kulturi potvrđuju vrijednost umjetničkog djela ili umjetnika.

Marco Cechet’s Big Lie (t)To Interail documents his journey around  Europe during the summer of 2004. The core of the work is a fake train ticket, artisanally self-produced and home-made. Big Lie (t)To Interail reflects the concept of true/false

and the nominal value of shared normative documentations – as for example train tickets. At the beginning of this journey the ticket was fake, but each time a train conductor endorsed it with his mark within those shared rules that regulate this normative contract, the ticket became true.
There is a similitude between this ticket and the idea of artwork: train conductors as specific operators have endorsed the authenticity of this ticket like art operators endorse the value of an artwork or an artist.
