Rodney Graham | Champagne Glasses
Chicago, USA: The Renaissance Society, 1997
Set of two
Edition of 100
"A Champagne Flute is the perfect vehicle for an artist obsessed with corrupting civilization according to its own rules. Vancouver-based conceptual artist Rodney Graham has been keenly corrupting great works of literature, art and music based on their internal logic. For The Renaissance Society, Graham has converted the Robinson Crusoe-esque character from his stunnuing Venice Bienale film installation into a delightful tipsy monogram poetically described as forever never level."
(Remarkably) still available (15 years later) for $150 plus shipping, from the publisher, here.
