Katharina Grosse - Kunstkiste Bonn

Description
Katharina Grosse - Kunstkiste Bonn
Acrylic on cardboard - Not signed - Unique, series of 300 - 2011

Paper-coated folding box with spray paint. From a series of 300 copies. Each copy is unique due to the hand colouring. Each box: 31.2 x 22.2 x 5 cm (12.2 x 8.7 x 1.9 in).
Published by the "Verein der Freunde" from the "Kunstmuseum Bonn", Bonn (Germany)..

Provenance: Kunstmuseum Bonn.

The "Kunstkiste" has been created in 2011 as a special edition of the Verein der Freunde des Kunstmuseum Bonn. The boxes designed by Grosse contain art historical texts and illustrations of the purchased works of art. Grosse chose the paint for the boxes, piled them up on top of and next to each other and finally designed them in a common painterly process. The end product is a unique specimen that varies in appearance depending on its position in the crate arrangement and the spray angle of the paint. Each box is thus a pars pro toto of a previously sculptural whole and yet has artistic intrinsic value.
