World Cup '74 Portrait #196 (Erwin Kremers: West Germany)




graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

The latest drawing in the Project is a re-mediation of an image of Erwin Kremers, who was selected to appear in both the FKS & Panini World Cup ’74 sticker album collections but not the West Germany squad for the Finals (his twin brother Helmut, who only featured in the Panini ’M√ľnchen 74’ album, did make the West German cut for the tournament, but only in reserve, not making an appearance in any of the hosts’ matches), being thus another of their particular ‘ghosts’, hauntologically present via such items of memorabilia.
