Catalogue. Amie Siegel. Inventory Press.

Catalogue suggests an artist’s exhibition catalogue, but is rather a chronological compilation of auction catalogues presenting the sales of the mid-century furniture designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret for Chandigarh, India, featured in Amie Siegel’s multi-element film installation Provenance (2013). An aside, an addendum, an index, the publication ends with the Christie’s London catalogue page from the 2013 auction of Provenance itself in the Post-War and Contemporary Art Sale, which completes the economic circuit of the project.

American artist Amie Siegel’s work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York MoMA/PS1, NY; Hayward Gallery, London; Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; Walker Art Center, MN; CCA Wattis, San Francisco; Kunstmuseum Stuttgart; Kunst-Werke, Berlin, Cannes Film Festival and Berlin Film festival among many others. She has been a fellow of the DAAD Berliner-Künstlerprogramm, Guggenheim Foundation, and the recipient of a Sundance Institute Film Fund award.
