Nina Beier. Charlottenborg.

This publication accompanies an exhibition at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen by the Danish artist Nina Beier. The exhibition – which is the artist’s first major solo show in the Scandinavian region – consists of an entirely new body of work.

The book is the third in a series of publications related to the exhibitions in Charlottenborg’s North galleries (the first editions featured Clemens von Wedemeyer and Pablo Bronstein). It is designed by Sara De Bondt studio in London and features an introductory essay entitled Demonstration by Charlottenborg’s curator and editor of the publication, Rhea Dall, together with an essay by the writer and curator Dieter Roelstraete. The latter text was generated by Roelstraete together with Beier as a result of their conversation and, rather than explaining the exhibition, it heads straight into an exploration of its conceptual span. The text weaves into and expands upon the art works, which is also why it is presented with a range of photographic footnotes – many of which document or relate to Beier’s practice. This essayistic stream of consciousness functions as an integral part of the show, one that does not separate the object (the exhibition) from its illustration (the catalogue).

Invalid Format: An Anthology of Triple Canopy, Volume 1. Triple Canopy.

The book, designed in collaboration with Project Projects, is at once an archive of Triple Canopy’s widespread publishing activities and a translation into print of projects that originally appeared in other forms. The design of Invalid Format reflects this problem: How might works produced for the screen be transposed to the codex in a way that recalls that former context, though not slavishly, and while also fully inhabiting the page? How can the form and function of interactive, audiovisual works be degraded elegantly, without disappearing entirely, in print?

Invalid Format will be published at least annually, and will be available at select bookshops worldwide as well as on Triple Canopy’s website. The initial volume of Invalid Format includes artist projects and literary work published in the first year of Triple Canopy’s existence, documentation of public programs, and a sampling of foundational correspondence. Contributors include Lene Berg, Joseph Clarke, Rivka Galchen, Adam Helms, Sheila Heti, Dan Hoy, the International Necronautical Society, Craig Kalpakjian, Jon Kessler, Wayne Koestenbaum, Rachel Mason, Amir Mogharabi, Rachel Owens, Ed Park & Rachel Aviv, the Poetic Research Bureau, John Powers, Emily Richardson & Iain Sinclair, Michael Robinson, and Diane Williams.

Hektor Works.

Invented together with engineer Uli Franke, Hektor made its debut as Jürg Lehni’s diploma project at the Ecole Cantonale d’Art De Lausanne (ECAL) in 2002, performing regularly since until 2009. Often created in collaboration with others, the works are explorations of the limitations and expression of this delicate yet wilful output device.

Three Attempts for a Catalogue Raisonné of the Work of
 ALBERTO GARUTTI. Kaleidoscope Press

Posted in books, distribution, Motto @ Wiels, Motto Berlin store, Motto Zürich store on November 24th, 2011

This artist’s book was published on the occasion of the workshop with Alberto Garutti (29-30 September 2010) held at the Fondazione Galleria Civica – Centro di Ricerca sulla Contemporaneità di Trento in the context of the Trentoship / Trento.Link Program.

Alberto Garutti (b. Galbiate, Como, 1948) explores the narrative and immaterial dimension of Public Art, an area of multi-author intervention, revising themes of a conceptual nature. “This book is a kind of hypothetical catalogue – more a (self) provocation and (meta)reflection than a true editorial object – in which three different authors have been invited to suggest three different possible books, which constitute together a multiple solution of an aporia, i.e. three possible approaches (a fictional account; a conversation; a critical essay) to a monographic book that does not yet exist, and that maybe will never see the light of release.” (A. Viliani)

Co-published with the Fondazione Galleria Civica – Centro di Ricerca sulla Contemporaneità di Trento.
