White Carrot by Rosemarie Trockel

The artist decided to mix several printing techniques, a porcelain object representing an icile and a photograph documenting how this mould was produced.


1) prints; 2) photographs; 3) porcelain & linen box
1) 54 x 34.7 cm; 2) 24 x 17.8 cm; 3) 54 cm
Art Fund grant:

In an unconventional way, Trockel has mixed dark aquatint plates together with heavily bitten plates showing photomechanically transferred and enlarged details of topographical maps, imitating snow drifts. The ceramic object is a cast of an icicle found in the Engadine.
