Paul McCarthy: Chocolate Factory Paris
This publication by Paul McCarthy (born 1945) is a new edition of Chocolate Factory, Paris , which has been expanded by 128 pages. It documents the artist's first major solo exhibition in France, illustrating both the concept of the exhibition as well as its reworking in response to an attack on McCarthy that occurred during the installation of his sculpture, "Christmas Tree," in Place Vendôme in Paris. Besides the illustrations of McCarthy's transformation of the magnificent exhibition spaces of Monnaie de Paris through his continuous production of chocolate Christmas trees, which were exhibited on ever-new shelves, this new edition also includes the video in which Paul McCarthy deals with both a physical and verbal attack ("Are you the fucking artist?").
