Full colour catalogue published in conjunction with the Whitechapel exhibition ‘Paul McCarthy: LaLa Land: Parody Paradise' (2005) with essays by Elisabeth Bronfen, Stephanie Rosenthal and John C. Welchman, and a story by Benjamin Weissman.
Drawing on imagery from American and European myths, McCarthy’s work transposes popular icons into disturbing and carnivalesque scenarios. This catalogue provides a comprehensive record of McCarthy's oeuvre and features the artist's drawings, sculptures and film stills, including photographic documentation of McCarthy's installation ‘Caribbean Pirates’, which was temporarily housed in a warehouse near the Whitechapel Gallery.
