Product Description

The artist's book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Zu groß für mein Zimmer (Too big for my room). In this autobiographical work Benjamin Appel plays with the associations and memory space of a specific recollection about a piece of land in his native Ecuador. On this field stood, in his subjective perception, 400 avocado trees. Since this land no longer exists in its original form, there is no evidence for the existence of these trees. As a testimony to the trees, Benjamin Appel chose a representative photo of an avocado tree from an image database, which is displayed 400 times in the artist's book. (Madeleine Frey)

Benjamin Appel (born 1978) lives and works in Karlsruhe and Leipzig. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe under Prof. Daniel Roth.
