One of 800 copies; scarce artist’s book by Martin Kippenberger (1953-97). The title refers to Ed Ruscha’s egg yolk painting Sand in the Vaseline (1974, van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven).

“On the left-hand pages of the illustration section, there are 15 identical reproductions of a black and white photograph taken by Kippenberger’s father. On the right-hand pages Kippenberger has pasted-in coloured illustrations of collages he created using postcards and photographs collected and taken during his visit to Brazil 1986…

“Apart from the illustrations, the book contains a text co-authored by Kippenberger and Albert Oehlen ‘When one has no particular desire to write about photography, one writes the following,’ a biography, a list of solo and group exhibitions and eight blank pages for notes.’”–Koch.

In excellent condition.
