Item description for Rirkrit Tiravanija: Soccer Half-time Cookery Book by Raimar Stange Rirkrit Tiravanija...
For the World Cup, Rirkrit Tiravanija, the Thai artist known for works that incorporate the provision of ingredients and the cooking of meals for or by viewers, has created a cookbook for halftime. He presents 16 recipes, one for each match in the preliminary rounds, to be prepared and eaten midway through the contest. Cheerful lists and instructions are supplemented by photographs of friends watching football on TV, and Tiravanija incorporates the World Cup motto "time to make friends"--which is dear to his own heart and central to his sociable, intercultural artistic practice--as the book's mission statement. Rirkrit Tiravanija is the winner of the 2004 Hugo Boss prize and recently had a retrospective at the Serpentine Gallery in London. He is represented in New York by Gavin Brown.
