(WOOL, CHRISTOPHER) (KORINE, HARMONY). Wool, Christopher & Harmony Korine. CHRISTOPHER WOOL / HARMONY KORINE: PASS THE BITCH CHICKEN - DELUXE SIGNED LIMITED EDITION. Signed by the Artists. Berlin: Holzwarth Publications, 2001. First Edition 1/100 Deluxe. 4to. Printed Self-Wrappers. Artists' Book. Fine. np, profusely illustrated in b&w. Design by Hans Werner Holzwarth. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "Pass the Bitch Chicken" is Christopher Wool and Harmony Korine's 2001 collaborative artists' book that in the words of the publisher "tests the limits of the pictorial and the abstract, pushing the boundaries of visual and textual narrative to extremes. Korine's photographs form the basis of an intense process of layering, drawing, overprinting, and photocopying. Passed back and forth between the artists, these images are eventually reduced to ghostly shadows beneath a barrage of scumbled dot screens, random patterning, and symbolic blurs and drips. Gradually, the fragmented, distorted images serially mutate, attacked by a combination of mechanical and human processes. Yet despite the violence exerted upon it, a vestige of narrative always survives". A most handsome example of the exceedingly uncommon 2001 Holzwarth Publications deluxe first edition of one hundred unnumbered copies (whose first trade edition is cited on pages 394-395 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book") SIGNED "Wool" and "Korine" in pencil on the front free endpaper, as issued.
