    Artspace, Monacelli, Phaidon, and Salon 94 Design are pleased to present a new limited edition of 50 unique resin sculptures by Italian artist and designer Gaetano Pesce. Entitled Self Portrait (The Complete Incoherence), the edition was produced on the occasion of Pesce’s new monograph, Gaetano Pesce: The Complete Incoherence, published by Monacelli Press.

    In a category all his own, Gaetano Pesce is widely considered one of the most important, and elusive, creative figures of the last half century. Bridging numerous key art and design movements, while never belonging to any of them, Pesce’s singular practice has remained steadfastly provocative, defying convention, utility, and good taste.

    “Standardization is no longer what we should achieve. But the contrary: the nonstandard, which is super important…Art is unique.” —Gaetano Pesce

    Self Portrait (The Complete Incoherence) exemplifies the artist’s experimental practice with a series of 50 unique tabletop sculptures that reference the artist’s aquiline profile in translucent, jagged, candy-colored resin anchored by an exaggerated foot-shaped base. Each signed and numbered limited edition comes accompanied by the Monacelli monograph and Certificate of Authenticity in a custom-designed display box inset with Pesce's "fish-and-ocean" emblem.
