Berlin: Edition Christian Nagel, 1990
2 x 11 x 6.5cm matchbox with printed label which contains three tipped on blobs of epoxy resin which in turn contain Kippenberger’s own nose pickings (yes snot – ewww). This is a response in typical Kippenberger fashion to Manzoni’s Merde d’Artiste where the artist’s own shit (supposedly in actuality it was dog food) was canned and sold by weight for the price of gold on that day.
This is one of only 34 signed and numbered examples (plus 6 artist’s proofs) and comes indirectly from the publisher Nagel’s own collection. Very scarce. VG+ condition.
arked, signed and dated in pencil.
