NOIT – 2: Burning. Lisa Le Feuvre (Ed). Camberwell Press & Flat Time House.

Flat Time House is pleased to announce the publication of the second issue of NOIT, FTHo’s creative journal published in conjunction with Camberwell Press. NOIT–2, guest edited by Lisa Le Feuvre, Head of Sculpture Studies at the Henry Moore Institute, considers how burning, an action predominant in Latham’s ideas, has been deployed by artists in various ways.

In addition, NOIT–2 Burning includes interviews with William Raban on Stephen Cripps, and with Annea Lockwood on her ‘Piano Burnings’; and visual contributions by artists Anthony McCall, Camila Sposati and Marlie Mul. Also included with NOIT is a DVD documenting a series of recent ‘Skoob’ performances undertaken as experiments in relation to the recent exhibition, God is Great (10 -19) – John Latham and Neal White at Portikus in Frankfurt.

Bibliographical notes: Francine Delaigle
Design: Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié

This book is not a catalogue raisonné, it instead takes a look at the library of an amateur, an excuse to apprehend this aspect of Richard Prince’s work which encompasses books and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the ‘ghosts’ of the missing books.
Richard Prince is an avid collector of books, an obsessive one.
This fervor is visible in The Good Life or American/English, where he photographs covers of books from his collection, reducing the book to an image, a simple surface.

On the occasion of the book launch, a part of the project by Yann Sérandour, Printed exhibition: Bibliothèque d’un amateur. Richard Prince’s Publications 1981-2012, will be shown in the vitrines of Motto Berlin’s courtyard.

Charlotte Moth. Serralves.

Charlotte Moth (Carshalton, UK, 1978) has created over the past 10 years a body of work that is essentially photographic but emerges primarily through the experience of sculpture, architecture and cinema. For the 2011 edition of the Sonae/Serralves Project that took place at the Instituto Araújo Porto, the artist produced a film and presented an installation where she transformed the pages of this book into a ‘sculpture’. This artist book is composed of 50 photographic sheets and a brochure with texts by Ricardo Nicolau (exhibition curator), Sean Dower (artist) and Quinn Latimer (writer and art critic).

1968: Radical Italian Furniture. Maurizio Cattelan & Pieropaolo Ferrari. Deste Foundation / Toilet Paper

1968: Radical Italian Furniture

Preface by Maria Cristina Didero. Drawings by Alessandro Mendini.

1968: Radical Italian Design, the newest project from Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari’s Toilet Paper in collaboration with the Deste Foundation in Athens, offers an unorthodox, kaleidoscopic walk through the Dakis Joannou collection of Italian Radical Design furniture. Led by avant-garde design firms such as Archizoom, Superstudio, Global Tools and 9999, Radical Design was firmly opposed to the ethics, and indeed the very notion of, “good design” or taste. Toilet Paper’s bold, mischievous interpretation of Joannou’s collection results in delightful, high-contrast photographs that merge the seductive lines of Radical Design furniture and objects with the curves of the modern-day nymphs cavorting among them. Published as a board book, and named after a year that was pivotal for architecture and design (and, of course, the world at large), 1968 is a collection of dreams and nightmares, an inspiring, eye-popping compendium of colorful, ironic objects and bodies. At once charmingly retro and alarmingly surreal, 1968 includes drawings by one of the Radical Design movement’s foremost architects, Alessandro Mendini.

An Invocation. Mike Nelson. Focal Point Gallery.

Using a selection of books chosen from the former Southend Central Library’s withdrawn stock, Nelson has created a permanent installation, concealed within the internal cavity walls of the new gallery. As the only visible record of the hidden artwork, this artist’s publication documents the covers of the five hundred and thirty books, which have been methodically documented and reproduced over 1,000 pages. This limited edition artist’s book (with PVC jacket) contains an interview between Director of Focal Point Gallery, Andrew Hunt and the artist Mike Nelson.
