Printed on the occasion of the inaugural exhibition of the same name, 23 – 27 Feb, 2017 at the Printed Matter, Inc. Los Angeles Art Book Fair, on the site of the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA.

In Support of Books is an exhibition of contemporary Bookends from an international assembly of Product, Object and Industrial designers. The project seeks multiple outcomes: to survey a single typology of design object; to share the references of its exhibitors; and to begin a series of inquiries into the objects associated with the reading, display, and appreciation of books. In Support of Books is accompanied by a printed catalog of the same name with photographs by Brian Guido & Julia Stotz, and essays by artist Erik Benjamins and Laura Houseley of Modern Design Review.

para/log 001 – Yuki Okumura. Yuki Okumura. Edition Nord

Edition Nord is launching a series of publications called “para/log”, presenting an aspect of an exhibition and/or the attitude of an artist through the form of flexible and conceptual artist’s books, unlike heavy and comprehensive ‘catalogues’. The first publication is Yuki Okumura’s “YUKI OKUMURA”.

Yuki Okumura is a Japanese artist based in Brussels and Maastricht. “YUKI OKUMURA” is a concept book for his latest project, in which he mixes Gordon Matta-Clark and himself. The contents and the design of the book precisely follow a Matta-Clark catalogue published by ICC, Antwerp, 1977.

”Through the auspices of Flor Bex, the former I.C.C. and MuHKA director, and with little-to-no municipal objection, Okumura has nearly finished a major film work in Brussels entitled Welcome Back, Gordon Matta-Clark. The project is nearing completion this summer in conjunction with an exhibition at MISAKO & ROSEN just in front of the streetcar in Minami-Otsuka. It consists of an elaborate series of holes and slices worked out in an almost musical score where a fixed set of elements played their way up and down throughout the layers. A terrific sense of disorientation in walking through multiple times is created by an unnerving elimination of death and from perspectives not normally visable in a living”. ––– From the press release of his solo show “Yuki Okumura”, Misako & Rosen, Tokyo, 2017

This book also has a special edition that encloses an artwork of Okumura in the form of photographic prints mounted on both sides of an aluminum plate., Edition Nord, Japan
