Giorgio Sadotti

This This Monster This Things

Since 2010, Giorgio Sadotti has been assembling This This Monster This Things, an exquisite corpse made from objects produced by 51 artist friends and acquaintances, most of whom have had an impact on Sadotti’s identity as an artist.

This process of gradual accumulation has resulted in a meta-artwork, a bastard object or a curatorial monster that mockingly presents a ‘complete’ entity, a Frankensteinian self-portrait drawn from people who have become familiar with Sadotti and his work over a twenty-five year period.

This This Monster This Things is an artist’s book, printed in colour broadsheet newspaper format, with a card wrap-around cover in an edition of 1,000.

Published to accompany the exhibition at Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea, 16 April – 30 June 2012.
