ERWARTUNG (EXPECTATION) (FROM NACHSTELLUNGEN (REENACTMENTS)


a unique object, photomontage comprised of a black-and-white and a color photograph, each flush-mounted to foamcore and connected by metal nails, 1976

diameter: approximately 57 in. (144.8 cm.)

This impressive, large-scale work, is in generally good condition. The color photograph appears to have faded slightly overall. When examined very closely, the following are visible on both parts of the work: scattered foxing; scratches, some of which may break the emulsion; subtle mounting creases; and a few linear impressions. There is a crease at the end of the vacuum cleaner handle where it may previously have become detached.
