I’m happy to invite you my solo exhibition called ‘1,164,041 Or How I Failed In Getting The Guinness World Book Of Record Of Most Comments On A Facebook Post’. The show opens Saturday the 18th of August at W139, Amsterdam, at 21.00.
The previous record was 1,001,552 comments and was held by a group of women from the southern parts of the US. The 8th of June I had reached a big enough number, one million, one hundred and sixty four thousand and forty one comments, so I submitted my request to the Guinness World Book of Records, attaching a collection of screenshots and witness accounts to verify the authenticity of my accomplishments.
Eight weeks later the Guinness World Book of Records officials replied; “Using automated scripts or bots are not in the spirit of a Guinness World Records achievement.” – and consequently denied my request to the world record.”
The exhibition at Barry will show new work in relation to the attempt and the communication with the Guinness World Book of Records.
