Description

Allen Ruppersberg’s poster series for Art Metropole presents the phrase “Who Remembers Where They Are From?” set in bold block type, split and magnified to occupy four vividly coloured posters. The format references familiar street ads found on telephone poles in Los Angeles advertising public events and rock shows. This repurposed poster form has become a recognizable component in many of Allen Ruppersberg’s works. The ephemeral nature of the referenced poster form is reflected in the work’s material choices with bold texts and bright inks printed on lightweight paper. Minor imperfections exist due to the production and shipping process.

Printed by Urs Jost and Axel Friedrich at their studio Durckwerkstatt, in Lenzburg, Switzerland utilizing processes and equipment previously available from commercial printers in the United States. Those American printers have been closing their shops as demand for their printing technologies wanes. As a result of the difficulty in replicating these techniques it is unlikely that Allen Ruppersberg will be releasing many more poster editions in this style.

This edition has been previewed at Art Basel Switzerland, Art Basel Miami, The New York Art Book Fair and will be presented at the LA Art Book Fair in January 2013.

Set of 4 posters, edition of 55 signed and numbered, plus 10 APs and 3 PPs.

(Please note the imperfections mentioned above refer to normal inconsistencies due to the printing process, lightweight paper and specifically to a minor crease found in the corner of the first print in each set bearing the artist’s signature and number.)
