about this work

Untitled (Rainbow Sculpture Silhouette Pile) (2008) is related to a series of sculptures by the artist, entitled 'Sculpture Silhouette Props', which recreate icons of sculptural history as two-dimensional cut-outs. Peter Coffin says that the silhouettes “represent a static memory-all of sculpture in one mass”.

Untitled (Rainbow Sculpture Silhouette Pile) was published by ICA, London on the occasion of the ICA Anniversary Print portfolio, together with editions by Carol Bove, Ryan Gander, Judith Hopf, Rosalind Nashashibi and Tomas Saraceno.

about Peter Coffin

Peter Coffin, whose practice includes photography, assemblage, performance, time-based media, installations, sound art, and sculpture in many forms, often uses art history, odd facts or obscure theories as a departure point for his surreal reinventions. Mostly expressing a sense of absurdity, his work engages with pre-conceptions about cultural ideals to challenge established perception and interpretation through the use of found, familiar, or fabricated sources popularized by the Surrealists.

Peter Coffin has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at MoMA, New York; Smithsonian Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington; Aspen Art Museum, Aspen; and Palais de Tokyo, Paris. His work has been shown in several group exhibitions at venues such as Solomon R. Guggenheim, New York; MoMA PS1, New York; Tate Modern, London; and MOCA, Los Angeles. His work is also represented in many important public collections, such as MoMA, New York; Aspen Art Museum, Aspen; and Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit.
