Odiseo #4. Oriol Mogas, Pol Perez (Eds.). The Flames (Folch Studio).

Volume 4 revolves around the loose topic of value, which is explored from different angles by Philippa Snow, Marta Jankovska and Eugenia Lapteva. It also includes photo essays by Jonathan Schofield, Olya Oleinic and Alex Franco, sitting alongside a review of Allen Jones’ controversial and unwilling contribution to The Clockwork Orange.

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.

distracted-reader #2 Michael Parr and Blaine Western. split/fountain.

distracted-reader #2 Michael Parr and Blaine Western. split/fountain.

A ridge, a section, an existing boundary, additions, a removed partition. A floor; concrete (where possible). 160 pages; includes 10 tipped-in colour plates. With essays by Michelle Menzies, Lance Pearce, and Henry Babbage.

Parr and Western segue a photographic essay on the ruinous state of Barton Gillespie’s modernist house in Westemere into photographs of mutely eloquent architectural and landscape fragments taken in Los Angeles and Mexico. Menzies’ essay reads the Barton Gillespie house as a figure of rapport between people, topography and climate. Pearce considers the itinerancy and conceptual mobility of Parr and Western’s practice. Babbage reflects on the different audiences that Parr and Western’s temporary, quasi-architectural spaces create, and the way the spaces operate as platforms for occupancy and performance.

During the Exhibition, the Studio Will Be Close. Lorenzo Benedetti & Caroline Dumalin (Eds.). Wiels / Motto Books.

During the Exhibition, the Studio Will Be Close is published on the occasion of the eponymous group exhibition organised by WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels (14 June – 17 August 2014) in collaboration with Motto Books.

The trilingual exhibition publication is composed of nine chapters in one volume. The introductory chapter features an essay by curator Lorenzo Benedetti, whose point of departure is the fine line and particular interaction between production and presentation at the art centre. What lies in between the physical proximity of the working studios and exhibition spaces turns out to be more than just a symbolic separation. Eight former artists-in-residence at WIELS were invited to design their own book space that consists of each 16 pages, in relation to their contributions to the dialogue of the show.

Contributors: Lorenzo Benedetti, Melissa Gordon, Lina Viste Grønli, Rob Johannesma, Aukje Koks, G. Küng, Cathérine Lommée, Emmanuelle Quertain, Grace Schwindt

Softcover, 17 x 24 cm, 160 pages, ill. b/w
