To accompany his exhibition, Peter Wächtler has produced a new limited edition artwork. Eat Your Own Ingredients (2016) is a hand-made leather sculpture, which references a classic top hat. Referring to the protagonist of Wächtler’s animation in his exhibition Far Outthis new edition materialises the character, allowing him to enter the physical world as a token of cartoon quality.
