For the blind man in the dark room looking for the black cat that isn’t there.

FOR THE BLIND MAN IN THE DARK ROOM LOOKING FOR THE BLACK CAT THAT ISN’T THERE

A catalogue for a travelling exhibition, ‘For a blind man in the dark room…’ starts with the premise that art is not a code that needs cracking. Rather, celebrating the speculative nature of knowledge and curiosity, the artists in this group exhibition are eager to keep art separate from explanation. Embracing a spirit of curiosity, the catalogue is dedicated to the playfulness of being in the dark and features contributions from such names as: Marcel Broodthaers, Sarah Crowner, Eric Duyckaerts, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Fischli & Weiss, Giorgio Morandi, Rachel Harrison, Rosemarie Trockel and Patrick van Caeckenbergh. Edited and sublimely designed by Will Holder, the catalogue also includes 15 large-scale colour cards featuring works by participating artists that come inserted in the back inside cover of the publication.

158 p + 15 plates, ills colour & bw, 21 x 34 cm, pb, English
Designed by Will Holder.
