How about a Kimye to hang over the mantlepiece?

Dubbed the most bizarre photo shoot of all time, Juergen Teller’s snaps of himself, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West taken at Château d’Ambleville in France earlier this year are going on sale at a special selling exhibition at Phillips, London.

The collaboration between Kimye and Teller was originally published as an editorial booklet by System Magazine in July.

Potential buyers can look forward to hanging photographs of Kanye, Kim, and Jurgen (but mostly Kim) in various states of undress above their mantlepiece.

The photos include pictures of Kardashian reclining in a field in the French countryside, frolicking about a construction site, and leaning on what appears to be a combine harvester.

If that’s not bizarre enough for you, there’s also images of Teller himself wading through a stream in his boxers, wearing a red puffer jacket and a wooly hat; or buyers could opt for Kanye West leaning casually against a tree, sporting his trademark disinterested grimace.

According to a press release, the show also features “portraits of the artist, struggling through the French countryside, dragging a suitcase through fields, shrubbery and streams in the hope of capturing (arguably) the world’s most famous couple in intimate scenarios.”

And the weirdness doesn’t end there. Teller will also show a series titled “My Man Crush, Pep Guardiola” in which the photographer shares borderline creepy candid snaps of the famous soccer coach traveling with his team, Bayern Munich.

The final series in the exhibition is titled “The Clinic,” where the photographer documents his time in an Austrian clinic as he comes to terms with life altering events in his personal and family history.

The exhibition is only on view for 10 days, until November 20, so hurry, because you don’t want to miss the German photographer’s celebration of strangeness.
