Please join us for the opening of Motto IMA, hosted within the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane.
Motto IMA is a specialist book shop within the institution, functioning as a platform for discourse around publishing within an expanded field of art and design. The selection is carefully curated by Motto and IMA staff. In collaboration with the IMA and separately, the bookstore will host talks, readings, book launches, and features projects and events organised by artists or other art professionals. The premises has been designed by Berlin based Studio Miessen.
This collaborative initiative builds on the IMA’s rich history of publishing catalogues, monographs, and academic writing, often in partnerships with others. The IMA currently publish three to four books a year, as well as smaller exhibition-based publications and artists editions.
The bookshop’s opening will accompany the opening of two new shows: Mierle Laderman Ukeles: Maintenance Art Works 1969–1980 and Sarah Browne: Hand to Mouth.
Saturday 11th October, 17.00 – 22.00.

Ultimate Lezcation. Yuri Manabe.
I was looking for a scenery
connected with my fantasy world
place that we want
still now and now
If I want to get out the room
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.

Lost Paradise. Žiga Kariž in collaboration with Vasja Cenčič.
Lost Paradise consists only of images. Artwork signed by Žiga Kariž in collaboration with designer Vasja Cenčič doesn’t’ even have classic book binding. No hardcover, no softcover, no binding in the middle. Instead, it consists only of 130 leaves, wrapped in cellophane. Calling this artwork by the technical term book is therefore seemingly problematic, which is underlined by the response of the Slovenian National and University Library that has designated Lost Paradise as a book at first, but has later changed its decision.1 A similar fate has befallen Ed Ruscha’s first cult book Twentysix Gasoline Stations in 1963. The book was rejected by the American Library of Congress because of its “unorthodox form and supposed lack of information”.2 Lost Paradise is in fact an even more unlikely candidate to achieve book status than Ruscha’s gasoline stations.
What has probably ultimately convinced the librarian bureaucracy that what lies on the table of the National and University Library is not a book or indeed any other sort of publication, is the fact that Lost Paradise is a book which contains no words save for the note on the cover. The cover foil bears a sticker which holds an extended colophon that gives basic data in two languages: “Lost Paradise by Žiga Kariž in collaboration with Vasja Cenčič was published by Zavod Projekt Atol, with Marko Peljhan acting as editor at large. The first issue was printed by Littera Picta in 250 copies and published in December 2010 with support of the Ministry of Culture or the Republic of Slovenia.”3 The text reveals only basic information: the title, the names of the editor and publisher, the year and place of publication. The price of the book is printed next to this data and can be compared to the prices of illustrated books about art; therefore the book does not try to label itself as artwork through its value. Of course, save for the title, there is also information about authorship, which is the only relevant and important piece of data for understanding of the artwork.
