In My Room is a major new publication surveying the work of German artist Friedrich Kunath. It encompasses the last five years of Kunath’s practice and is an extension of his unique aesthetic.
Complex and playful installations of paintings, sculptures and videos feature a cornucopia of imagery, brought together from such diverse sources as Old Master paintings, slapstick cartoons, anthropomorphised animals, and pop iconography from the 1960s and 70s.
A narrative around the emotional life of the artist is enacted through fictional characters, producing an in-between world filled with both humour and pathos. This catalogue is designed by Yvonne Quirmbach in close collaboration with the artist. New essays come from Michael Bracewell, Ory Dessau, Claire Le Restif, and Paul Luckraft.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Friedrich Kunath: Raymond Moody’s Blues at Modern Art Oxford, 21 September – 17 November 2013.
