Saint Laurent Rive Droite has announced that it will be exclusively launching Mario Sorrenti and John Baldessari‘s photobook, Noses Elbows and Knees.

The photobook has been curated by Neville Wakefield, the same art curator who worked on the duo’s “Noses Elbows And Knees” exhibition at Half Gallery, New York in 2017. The book was published at the end of 2017 and brings Sorrenti and Baldessari’s art together, just like the exhibition.

Inside Noses Elbows and Knees you’ll find Baldessari’s signature paintings of body parts on photographs, which comment on Hollywood culture and are packed with colors, as well as Sorrenti’s eye for photography. Together, they deconstruct beauty conventions by stripping off clothes and, therefore, strip back societal codes through fashion, collages and photography.

Each copy of Noses Elbows and Knees comes signed by Mario Sorrenti and John Baldessari. It is available for pre-order in Saint Laurent Rive Droite’s Paris and Los Angeles stores today — the issues are number three and four of 26 and retail for €22,000 EUR apiece (approx. $23,800 USD).
