Currently reading : Larry Clark $100 Sale
From this weekend thousands of original prints by artist and director Larry Clark are available to purchase at New York’s hilariously named Home Alone 2 Gallery (yes, that is actually it’s name – I checked) run by Leo Fitzpatrick, star of Clark’s genre defining portrait of nihilistic H.I.V. spreading Telly, as a thank you to fans that have made his graphic portraits of of teen debauchery cult classics; from Kids, a one-day world wind of teen sex that saw indie starlet Chloe Sevigny shoot to fame, and boundary pushing erotic teen picture Ken Park that verges on pornographic and skates the line of consent-age scandal, to 2012’s award winning Marfa Girl living in the culturally dichotomous West Texas town of Marfa near the US border, released only on the director’s website. “This is a payback to all the skate rats and collectors who would like a souvenir, so I can die happy.”
The candid works, some of which have been exhibited in the world’s leading galleries and can fetch sales of up to five figures, are being sold for $100 apiece, making accessible the to the works ordinarily attained only by removed dealers to the same youth generation the provocateur has captured for decades.
