Rémy Zaugg, About Death II, 16 Paintings, Mai 36 Galerie & Galerie Nordenhake GmbH, Art 33 Basel, 2002

A cool exhibition catalogue that recreates in miniature Zaugg's installation of 16 text-based paintings with their sizes & sequencing as installed at Art 33 Basel. On the back cover Zaugg explains the rationale for the work writing: "This frieze, consisting of 16 paintings, continues the tradition of the medieval dance of the Death and especially recalls the fresco painted around 1440 in Basle as well as the woodcuts by Hans Holbein the Younger on the same subject."

9 single-sided pages, individual pages 3" x 4.25", and when unfolded 3ft 2.25".
