Dear resource people!

Im pleased to invite you and invite you again to visit my projectspace and affiliated creatives!

Here a last minute date @ Liebig12 

Join us for a drink and have a look at the works presented this Friday 18.01 from 6pm (until 10pm)

Exhibition + Book Launch: "Er ist Totem" artworks by Piro.

TOTEM is a bestiary of the apparitions, the images, and the ghosts that haunt the Italian-born and Bangkok-based artist Piro. 

The artworks represent a profound visual dialogue with many of the world's most distinct iconographic traditions. 
Half pagan, half sacred, Piro succeeds in building a new religion, mixing Mayan glyphs, Incan rock carvings, North American totem poles, South Pacific spell books, Easter Island and Angkor Wat, via Manga and 80s skatestyle.

The exhibition will show 4 new large-format works and in conjunction with the show, SHS Publishing , a berlin based publishing house, is proud to present the author's first book. 

Collecting more than 126 original artworks, the publication is a unique work of art itself. 
Printed on a 1980s Duplo Printer, and hand-bound in Ravenna, Italy, TOTEM comes in a limited edition of 70 copies, all numbered by stamp.

At the same time homage and satire, serious reflection and playful parody, soothing, gruesome and witty, this book constitutes a pantheon of deities and demons from a secret religion. 

TOTEM is about both the representation and evocation of power itself, and it will be of inspiration for designers, artists and witchdoctors alike.
