i gotta see pics of the packaging. that's got to be an artform in itself.
Are you talking about how he ships them? I just received my kuksi piece from Last Rites. Basically he screws a large piece of wood into the back of the piece and then carefully boxes it up. That way, the piece doesn't move or shift at all during transport.
f**king WOW! i stopped by josh liners booth at basel last year a few different occasions and each time people were totally drawn in by kris' piece. so many people stopping to ask questions. there is so much to see at art fairs, but when you catch a glimpse of something like these you have to check out the detail. hope the swiss basel draws an appreciative crowd also.

Kris Kuksi Book - Divination and DelusionKris Kuksi's sculptures, rendered in immaculate detail, evoke a grandeur reminiscent of the Baroque era. Kuksi successfully merges this sumptuous echo of the past with a satirical and critical commentary of our modern industrial world. These finely crafted sculptures employ images of Gods and Goddesses from past and present mythologies and examine religious belief and iconography. Despite the frequent portrayal of corruption, violence, chaos and degeneration, the works in this book challenge aspects of our beliefs and question whether or not humans have the ability to improve the world’s prosperity.
The creation of these sculptures spans the last five years and embodies Kuksi's personal view of our turbulent world. These beautiful assemblages grace the walls of galleries and museums throughout the world and are displayed in the homes of numerous celebrities.
This stunning volume allows the wider public to examine and appreciate these artworks in exquisite detail for the first time.
I was lucky enough to catch the work of Kris Kuksi at Pulse LA last weekend. His work is UNBELIEVABLE! So much going on. It draws you in and you could look at it for hours. It's like looking into another world. He was there as well and I spoke to him a bit about his work. Very nice guy.
