What are you waiting for? They'll not be around for long - go and get one for yourself!
Urs Luethi was born in Switzerland and lives in Germany. Working with photography, print, painting, sculpture and performance, his work takes a wry look at the aesthetic of the human condition. Frequently presenting self portraits his work is witty, ironic and loaded with tongue-in-cheek humour.
Luethi represented Switzerland at the Venice Biennial in 2001 where he presented himself as part of the exhibition.
He has shown work extensively worldwide: Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Iceland, UK, Austria, Japan, Australia, USA and Canada. His work is held in a number of national collections: Kunsthalle in Hamburg, Kunstmuseum in Bern, Centre Pompidou in Paris and Tate in London.
He is currently showing work in A Bigger Splash at Tate Modern in London and in Glam! The Performance of Style at Tate Liverpool. And now he has work in Preston too - how exciting!
For more information on his work please visit his website:
