André Thomkins | Zahnschutz Gegen Gummiparagraphen

André Thomkins
Zahnschutz Gegen Gummiparagraphen 
Remscheid, Germany : Vice-Versand, 1968
11.5 x 5.5 cm
Edition size unknown. Signed and dated by the artist in ink on recto.

With a low estimate of between 25 and 50 Euros (given the stature of Vice Versand as publisher), this eventually sold for 200 Euros, last Octobe at auction. Housed in a cardboard box, the work consists of a rectangular piece of rubber printed with the title. Three rubber bands knotted into slots strap around the ears and face of the wearer, allowing the rubber piece to cover and protect the mouth.
