An exhibition of sculptures, photographs and other works by legendary auteur John Waters is to go on display at Kunsthaus Zurich.

The show opens on September 23.

The museum explains: “An ironic and mordant observer, Waters skewers the Hollywood dream factory, mercilessly exposing the establishment and its foibles, as the edition ‘Tragedy’ (2015), created for the art magazine ‘Parkett’, clearly demonstrates.

“The object, a homage to Jayne Mansfield’s death, created using acrylic, artificial hair, painted silicone and urethane, is being donated to the Kunsthaus by its owner, This Brunner, as are all the approximately 40 works by Waters in the exhibition.

“As a result, the museum acquires the first and most comprehensive collection by this maverick artist.”
