Nicole Wilson’s exhibition Ötzi is a groundbreaking years-long project spanning performance, tattoo, and digital media. After she received international attention for this project in Inked magazine, tattoo aficionados around the world asked Wilson for her tattoo design files. Until now, these have never been available for purchase. The South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology, which cares for and researches the mummy, has granted permission for the artist to move forward with sharing digital files of the tattoo.
Praise Shadows has partnered with Fairchain, a new framework for equity and trust between artists, galleries and collectors. The digital tattoo files featured in the exhibition Ötzi are authenticated and registered on the blockchain.
