Prinz Charles

2011

“I put the Austrian artist Otto Muehl’s 1967 screenprint, Prinz Charles, through an ageing process. I enlarged the nose, ears, neck and jowls, and receded the hair. I haven’t changed the teeth. The original was tongue in cheek, quite rock’n’roll. Even in 60s Austria, the royal family had a cultural celebrity. I wanted to make it relevant to Prince Charles today, taking in my past (I was born in 1967) and this strange ­fascination with the royal family.”
