Book bound in red cloth - Signed on the title page - Edition of 100 red books - 2010
From an edition of 500 copies in different colour cloths that were given away by Billy Childish’s Berlin gallery neugerriemschneider at their solo stand of his paintings at Art Basel, 2010, of which 100 were bound in red cloth.
The Art Basel presentation of Childish’s work is what he refers to as his ‘overnight success’. In 2010, following his acclaimed exhibition Unknowable But Certain at the ICA, Tim Neuger from prestigious Berlin Gallery neugerriemshneider, invited Billy to show with them at Art Basel in what he called the Basel Attack. They took 50 paintings to Basel which all sold. The stand caused a real stir and was the talk of the fair, and since then Billy’s paintings have been taken more seriously and he’s been given the space and shows to develop what he does.
Most of these books were given away, but a few copies were salvaged before they all disappeared. This book is now exceedingly scarce.
