Artist: MCEWEN, ADAM
Label: From The Nursery
"ADAM MCEWEN wrote actual obituaries for The Daily Telegraph in London before he ever turned the genre into artwork, writing obituaries for still living and breathing celebrities like Kate Moss and Jeff Koons (hes done nine in total and has three more on the way). Seeing news in an art gallery of someone dead who is still so obviously alive is like creating a black hole on the wall-which seems to be an effect that McEwen, age 43, now living and working in New York, is particularly good at making." - Christopher Bolllen, Interview.
"White vinyl, 400 numbered copies.
McEwen reads his fictional obituaries for Richard Prince and the Melvins.
closing line for the Melvins: "There were no children."" - From The Nursery.
