This book is not a catalogue raisonné, it instead takes a look at the library of an amateur, an excuse to apprehend this aspect of Richard Prince’s work which encompasses books and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the ‘ghosts’ of the missing books.
Richard Prince is an avid collector of books, an obsessive one.
This fervor is visible in The Good Life or American/English, where he photographs covers of books from his collection, reducing the book to an image, a simple surface.

On the occasion of the book launch, a part of the project by Yann Sérandour, Printed exhibition: Bibliothèque d’un amateur. Richard Prince’s Publications 1981-2012, will be shown in the vitrines of Motto Berlin’s courtyard.

Inside the White Cube – Yann Sérandour. Overprinted Edition. By Yann Sérandour & Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié.
Published by JRP.
English. 84 pages.

This publication functions as a palimpsest: constructed on the reprint of the first French translation of Brian O’Doherty’s influential book “Inside the White Cube” (published by JRP|Ringier in the series Lectures Maison Rouge), it superimposes reproductions and commentaries of Yann Sérandour’s work.

Yann Sérandour’s interstitial and mimetic proposals stem from pre-existing works or publications, whose meaning and problematics are thus reactivated. Inscribing himself in a conceptual heritage, the artist is prolonging historical gestures or manifestations by infiltrating and parasiting them. This practice of “détournement” is a way of reviving the (sometimes latent) stakes and significations of appropriated elements, as well as a way to interrogate their historical, political, and aesthetic dimensions.
