‘FOUNTAIN’ for Marchel Duchamp – Alan Kithching

+ + +

A letterpress print in three colours: White, Black and Silver. Printed on 350 gsm Somerset mould made paper. In an edition of 10 copies.

The work is a Monogram of the letters ‘M’ and ‘D’, and is approximately the size of Duchamp’s original ceramic ‘Fountain’. The work is printed from wood block letters which are well over one hundred years old. These were originally used to print posters from. They are now part of my very large collection of wood block types – and to a certain degree therefore ‘found’ objects.
