In late 2005, Vienna’s Secession gallery exhibited work by the influential Los Angeles Conceptual artist and master of appropriated commercial imagery, Christopher Williams, alongside work by the Dutch collaborators Jeroen de Rijke and Willem de Rooij. The show was documented in two separate catalogues — one for each artist (or artist team) — and this volume presents the work of Williams only. It includes photographs of a model showcasing a shower door, cameras and camera parts, corncobs, car interiors, bicycles and other elements of the urban landscape. Viewers may be familiar with some of the work, which was featured in 2006 on the cover of Artforum. The de Rijke and de Rooij volume of this two-part catalogue is not available here.
