(DOKTORSRITGERD). 2003. ONE OF 50 COPIES SIGNED BY BOTH ARTISTS

£195.00

Reykjavik: Silver Press, 2003
31 x 21, unpaginated (approx 160pp of which about 50% are blank) plus covers and transparent plastic outer covers- all spiral bound. An exhibition catalogue which is in fact a conceptual artist’s book from Iceland’s foremost living artist (and former friend of Dieter Roth). The work takes the form of an interview with fellow artist Sigrun Porsteinsdottir who quizzes Kristjan Gudmundsson about art and life. Wherever Gudmundsson paused to ponder the answer (which is after all a big consideration) a blank page has been added to the text – thus reflecting the artist’s interest and obsession with time and measurement. Two works are reproduced in b/w at the end of the book. This is one of 50 signed (by both artists) and numbered copies aside from the 300 numbered copies. Fine apart from a slight mark on the white rear cover.
