The work was included in Kippenberger\’s landmark exhibition at Tate Modern in 2006, and a sister work is held in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. This work was executed during the most important year for sculpture in Kippenberger\’s practice which entailed not only these commanding street lamp cabinets, but also a number of other standing street lamps, as well as the celebrated Martin, Into the Corner, You Should Be Ashamed of Yourself series. Kippenberger\’s art took many forms; his projects entailed painting, photography, poster-publishing, performance, and particularly sculpture. His approach to the genre was unique, progressive, and varied. Indeed, sculpture and spatial expression took root early on in Kippenberger\’s practice. As curator Diedrich Diedrichsen has explained, \“The very first work that he publicly exhibited had its origins in the use of spatial and sculptural notions for heuristic purposes. When Kippenberger went to Florence to become an artist in 1976, he began his first series of paintings (Uno di void, un Tedesco in Firenze) by ordering a quantity of canvases on stretcher frames. He then took precisely the number of canvases whose height, stacked one on top of the other, would equal his own (he fell short of this goal by roughly ten centimeters) – painting them with black-and-white motifs based on newspaper clippings or his own photographs\” (Diedrich Diedrichsen, 'The Poor Man\’s Sports Car Descending a Staircase: Kippenberger as Sculptor' in: Exh. Cat., Los Angeles, The Museum of Contemporary Art,Martin Kippenberger: The Problem Perspective, 2008, p. 124). The stack was intended to form a sort of self-portrait, a summation of the artist\’s Italian experience that could similarly summate his body shape. The present work can be understood in a similar way. If one understands the five street lamps appearing to form a head and shoulders, it is even possible to glean a typically trite message from the work, as if Kippenberger shows himself as the street lamp man, imploring the viewer to roll back the boozily-decorated curtain to reveal the content of his true erudite personality within – as denoted by the stack of weighty tomes arranged inthe colours of the German flag. The street lamp was central to Kippenberger\’s practice. It had first appeared as early as 1980, when he photographed himself arm in arm with a lantern looking out over the Tunisian sea. Already the lantern seemed personified – a character with whom Kippenberger could interact. In 1988, Kippenberger took a fateful trip to Spain with Albert Oehlen. It was the moment that Oehlen discovered abstraction, it was the moment that Kippenberger produced his celebrated underpants paintings, and it was also the moment upon which Kippenberger created his Street Lamp for Drunks – aquotidian lamppost which took a curvilinear aquiline form, at once a readymade lamppost for the viewer so drunk that they see everything askew and askance, and a visual parody of the aesthetic theory of the line of beauty. He made street lamps his trademark image, and made them in his own image: tall, slightly absurd, and perennially capable of the \‘lightbulb moment\’. The present work represents the apex of their complexity within the artist\’s oeuvre, deployed in an impactful and arresting concetto.
