The subject of this book entails an unconventional autobiography. Retracing one year in the life of American post-conceptual artist Rob Pruitt through the everyday objects and personal belongings that he once loved and used, then felt he no longer needed, it emerges as an extension of the actual flea markets he has been organising since the early 1990s. This particular collection of items, sold on eBay between 2013 and 2014, unearths precious fragments of Pruitt’s life, while also revealing the most material desires of an artist known for his highly personal and biographical work across diverse mediums like painting, installation, and sculpture.
