FRIEDRICH KUNATH: THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WORLD IN THE WORLD
A fully illustrated catalogue, with texts by Andrew Berardini and Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer accompanied the exhibition The Most Beautiful World In The World, held at White Cube, April 15 - June 4, 2011.
"The all encompassing environment created for this exhibition was an attempt to create an improbably utopian world according to Kunath. A series of surreal sculptures served as proxy for the artist. A figure, modelled on Kunath and wearing his clothes, loiters next to a loud speaker, oblivious to the insistent pecking of a bird perched on his nose. A pedestal stands vacant, while the escape of the sculpture that might have stood there is suggested by a series of footprints leading away. A horn-playing banana-man jauntily trots across the space, and an Henry Moore-like sculpture reclines on a day-bed nearby, watching a film that charts a journey simultaneously looking towards the future and back to the past. Absurdist in content, a sense of faux nostalgia permeates the scene." Excerpt from White Cube press release for the exhibition, 2011.
