Ersatzteillager (Special Edition)



Gouache Painting, 14 × 19 cm, and book Swiss binding, hardcover, 192 pages, five colour offset + 16 pages index booklet
19.5 × 14.5 × 3 cm

The special edition of ERSATZTEILLAGER is a series of 16 unique paintings, each refering to one the 16 series of shapes in the book. Each painting is gouache on paper, 14 × 19 cm.

ERSATZTEILLAGER (spare and ware depot) is Florina’s first book with Edition Taube. It is an atlas of shapes and contains the visual vocabulary on which most of her paintings and installations are based on. 

ERSATZTEILLAGER is an abstract contemplation about shapes and aesthetics. Florina draws inspiration from mechanical spare parts of every day objects: Disconnected from the context and function they once where designed for, she uses them as a starting point for visual exploration.

The book itself is also published in four versions, each with a different cover and page order and a print run of 4 × 100.

The special edition contains one painting and one version of the book.
