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.

The Artist’s House – From Workplace to Artwork. Kirsty Bell. Sternberg Press.

The artist’s house is a prism through which to view not only the artistic practice of its inhabitant, but also to apprehend broader developments in sculpture and contemporary art in relation to domestic architecture and interior space. Based on a series of interviews and site visits with living artists about the role of their home in relation to their work, Kirsty Bell looks at the house as receptacle, vehicle, model, theater, or dream space. In-depth analyses of these contemporary examples—including Jorge Pardo, Mirosław Bałka, Danh Vo, Gregor Schneider, Frances Stark, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Paweł Althamer, Mark Leckey, Monika Sosnowska, Gabriel Orozco, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Andrea Zittel—are contextualized by key artists of the twentieth century such as Kurt Schwitters, Alice Neel, Edward Krasiński, Carlo Mollino, and Louise Bourgeois. A two-way flow from the domestic arena to the exhibition space becomes apparent, in which the everyday has a significant role to play in the merging of such developments as installation art, relational aesthetics, expanded collage, and performance art.
