This text is from the booklet included in Böhm's
multiples from 2004.
The edition of this remake is 50 copies consisting
of seven different multiples. All copies were send
to Australia and there sold to different collectors
by David Dellafiora.
Also there is an extra edition which Böhm made especially
for the Museum
of Temporary Art and donated it in May
2004. That's why not only Böhm's remakes are preserved
but also th original multiples. In addition to that
we can present original comments to each multiple by
Böhm taken out of the documents in the archive of the
The flea market multiples: 1. Happy birthday (left)
Two matchboxes. The first has 'happy birthday' and some hearts
and flowers on its label, the second is labelled 'The Flea Market
Multiples - Collect all seven - 2004'. Both contain a number of
small candles and some matches.
You can still use the matchboxes to light the matches.
My remake also contains a little booklet with the origin
of these multiples
