Faim de siècle

Faim de siècle’ multiples series

The Faim de siècle series (literally ‘hunger
of the century’) was planned around the
millennium and featured 100 notable artists
of the 20th century in the form of fake confect-
ionery. The system was conceived as a 'Pic-n-mix' choice of favourites, which the buyer
would then receive packaged in specially
crafted presentation boxes displaying up to
25 (the Connoisseur edition). I coined the
word 'multicat' for this form of multiple (from
the German 'Unikat' for unique) because this
medium is a form of both. The individual forms
were produced in limited editions of 100.
They were either cast in resin or assembled
in mixed media, hand-painted or covered.
