The pieces presented included a series of duratran light boxes and a tri-vision billboard entitled ‘Who's Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue (for Gianni)’ (1997). New sculptural works exhibited were: ‘Optimistic’ (1997), two wooden boxes painted in minimal household gloss; three large vitrine works; and ‘Shut Up and Eat your Fucking Dinner’ (1997) – a formaldehyde work in which rows of prepared meat hung for display are submerged in the preservative. 

An edition of 1,000 signed catalogues was produced on the occasion of the exhibition (Galerie Bruno Bischofberger, 1997).
