Keith Coventry : Inhaler

Keith Coventry
London, UK: The Multiples Store, 1998
7.5 x 3 x 4.2 cm
Cast plastic found inhaler
Edition of 50 initialed and numbered copies

"What at first appears to be a true-to-size plastic model of an asthma inhaler turns into an object with a very different recent history. Life-enhancer for some, the inhaler, once redundant, takes on another life as a travelling pipe for the urban crack addict. For Keith Coventry this is a departure from painting and from his previous large-scale work in bronze into a new, non-traditional material – cast plastic."

Still available from the publisher, here.
