Tom Otterness, Zodiac Love Series

Tom Otterness’s sculpture series, Zodiac Love, was created in 1982 and originally marketed through the Art Direct mail-order catalog, a collaborative venture of the artist group Colab and the artist bookstore Printed Matter.  Additional copies of these sculptures were sold at Colab pop-up stores,  and at the gift shops of a small number of downtown New York art spaces.  Like Otterness’s other plaster sculptures from this early phase of his career, the Zodiac Love sculptures are an open edition. The artist retains the right to re-open the cast series but all the Zodiac Love sculptures currently in existence were made between 1982 and 1987.  There is no exact count of how many of these sculptures survive, but there is no doubt that they are extremely rare.

 

These sculptures were the subject of a Gallery 98 online exhibition, Tom Otterness, The Zodiac Love Series, 1982-87.
