Peter Piller is an artist, a seeker of things, a photographer, and a transformer of our everyday world. Interested, above all, in combinations of word and image, he senses the comedy or absurdity of images that remains hidden until the second, “Peter Piller look” reveals them. Our Edition Gerd Hatje is a classic (artist or special) edition that comes with his new book, Erscheinungen (Manifestations). While traveling along the freeway, Piller photographed examples of the use of female models on the backs of trucks and how they are—sometimes absurdly—sexualized when advertising tools, shower stalls, or home improvement stores. As he often does, Piller has also removed the typographical elements from the ads, allowing the isolated visual material to speak for itself. Here, Piller’s artistic commentary is unveiled: his translations into a new context demonstrate that the phenomena of our everyday lives are what they really are: comical, absurd, and memorable “manifestations” of the reality we inhabit. Select your edition from the two variations of the motif, and it will be delivered with the book, housed inside a slipcase.
