    About The Work

    To accompany his exhibition, Far Out, at Chisenhale Gallery, Wächtler produced a new exclusive limited edition artwork. Wächtler works across a range of media including sculpture, drawing and animated film, with his writing and prose poems often providing source material. Wächtler's limited edition artwork, Eat Your Own Ingredients, is a hand-made leather sculpture, which references a classic top hat. Each of the objects is a unique result of an intricate and layered treatment of the leather by Wächtler. Referring to the protagonist of Wächtler's animation in his exhibition Far Out, this new edition materialises the character, allowing him to enter the physical world as a token of cartoon quality. Each edition is unique and handmade by the artist.
