KAWS @ Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris / Spongebob Print Release


(All gallery images via Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin)

KAWS Paris outing offers the opportunity to witness his latest fixation with large-scale sculpture. After the debut of the giant black Accomplice at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum,  here we note the side-by-side accompaniment of a gargantuan pink Accomplice (both in an edition of 3, plus 1 Artist Proof). Aside from the massive dissected Companion at the artist’s Tokyo store Original Fake, Galerie Perrotin is the stage for an uber-scale brown 5 Years Later Companion (ed. 3 +1 AP). What truly marks this show is the ultimate evolution of brilliant colossal sculptural works, leaving the paintings in relative shadow. For the first time, KAWS has produced multiple immense sculptures for a solo gallery exhibition – an impressive offering indeed.

Together with the monumental 5YL Companion currently on display in Hong Kong, as well as the edition of life-size Chums, this exhibition clearly signals the direction KAWS is taking towards titanic renditions.

UPDATE: Just a few short hours before doors opened to the preview of the Editions|Artist’s Book Fair in New York last night, the Aldrich Museum announced the release of a new KAWS print at their booth. Priced at $800 the 20″x20″ edition of 100 depicts the artist’s rendition of the Spongebob character (image below) and is KAWS’ first print since his 2007 Dissected Companion edition. After the fair’s end, twenty remaining prints will become available via Art + Culture Editions.
