Necrophonia documents a 2011 collaborative exhibition by Urs Fischer and Georg Herold at The Modern Institute in Glasgow. Transforming the gallery into a studio, the artists created sculptures based on models from a nearby art school. For the exhibition’s duration, the resulting sculptures--made of unfired clay, so that they started to disintegrate over time--were exhibited alongside the live nude models from which they were derived.

This large hardcover volume documents German sculptor Georg Herold’s caviar portraits of Lionel Ritchie, Sean Penn, William Burroughs, Bertrand Russell, Mark Lombardi and others; several caviar abstractions that mingle with long strings of numbers; and his supersized sculptures of women’s bodies, composed of fabrics stretched over the crude wooden slats that are his signature material.
