PAIN, paper, acrylic paint, 5.1 x 8 x 0.8 inches /13 x 20.3 x 2 cm., edition 50, signed and numbered, 2013

€ 250,-

 

 

For this limited edition, artist Nicolas Ceccaldi has sown shut copies of Tao Lin’s Taipei (2013) and partially covered their exterior surfaces with black acrylic paint. The letters remaining visible spell out the word PAIN, appearing both on the front cover and on the side, allowing the edition to be displayed either flat, frontally, or stored on a bookshelf. The original idea for this détournement was found on the website jacketparty.tumblr.com.
