SO SO TIRED. Joe Silveira. Colour Code Printing

Joe Silveira takes photos of architectural surface ornamentation with his iPhone… migrating these photos from social media to risograph iterations, the book rattles the moment of democratization, of capturing and sharing what one sees, with the gorgeous and strange relief of a finality in finding that opportunity.

TRAVERSALS is based on a series of conceptual interviews with Dora Garcia, Chris Kraus, Mark von Schlegell, Charles Stankievech, and Jacob Wren originally produced for an installation in an art gallery. As a re-issue of these texts the forthcoming publication continues K.’s interest in the book-as-exhibition. Each invited contributor has found a unique way to explore the hybrid spaces between genres and art forms, and the discussions focus especially on the role and relationship between visual art and writing. While the interview process was rather formalised––with one set of five identical questions posed to each person in the first round, and then five individual questions asked in a second round in response to the first five answers––the texts themselves delight through a personal tone and a great openness for both idiosyncratic trajectories and unexpected trasversals between the five different chapters.

The material was originally produced for the piece TRAVERSALS (With Ladder) shown in the exhibition 5x5Castelló2011 at Espai d’Art Contemporani de Castelló, Castelló, Spain (8 July – 18 September 2011).

On the occasion of 5×5 the interviews were pinned to the wall in a grid while a sliding library ladder allowed for a playfully embodied reading experience. The spatialised format revealed the parallels in the conversations as well as their differences – particularly as the conversations evolve.

Ultimate Lezcation. Yuri Manabe.

I was looking for a scenery
experience
connected with my fantasy world
place that we want
still now and now
its ongoing
and somewhere
suddenly
around corner
If I want to get out the room
maybe something
you will do and meet and fuck

Yasei no Shikou. Yuri Manabe.

That Title comes from the work of Claude Levi-Strauss “La Pensee Sauvage”. I haven’t read it, but thinking about wild and structure in nature as neutral place often where man did not make and its surrounding and margin.

Mark Leckey – On Pleasure Bent. Patrizia Dander, Elena Filipovic (Eds.). Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König.

Mark Leckey – On Pleasure Bent is the first comprehensive monograph on the British artist’s work. Tracing in reverse chronology the connections between his recent production – including videos, sculptures, installations, and lecture performances – and his earliest works from the mid and the late 1990s,this publication reveals the persistent centrality of popular culture, music and technology to Lechey’s influential oeuvre. All the artist’s scripts to date appear together for the first time in this lavishly illustrated volume, which features newly commissioned essays by John Cussans, Patrizia Dander, Elena Filipovic, and Alex Kitnick, as well as an interview between the artist and Dan fox.
