Urban Defect #2, #5, #7 – Volker Heinze – Common Sense Editions

The ‘Urban Defects’ are constructed images from photographs of real existing cities. They were realized as digital type-c prints framed to a size of 120 x 160cm. The ‘Urban Defects’ are part of a larger cycle of work called ‘Time Window’. There they are visually extended with portraits, sea and landscapes as well with advertisements in order to get hold of an album as a visual estate of cultural fragmentations of the 20th century. Sold as a set of three books (#2, #5, and #7).

Printing by Druckverlag Kettler, Bönen

BLONDE by Nico Vascellari, Published by NERO

BLONDE, Nico Vascellari, Nero

Blonde is an artist’s book by Nico Vascellari, printed in 500 hand numbered copies + 33 multiples including an original work, numbered and signed by the artist. Published by NERO in collaboration with Hospital Productions.
Conceived both as a book and an artwork, Blonde is a collection of images from one of the artist’s personal archives: a selection of 200 press clippings titled “Blonde”. Each press clipping has been reproduced in its own original format on 80 gsm glossy paper, as ripped and collected by the artist over the last ten years. The whole collection, printed on unbound single sheets, is packaged in a black cardboard box, silkscreened and individually numbered.
The pages of this publication derive for the most part from fashion magazines. The iconographic theme of “the blonde” is represented obsessively. The sequence of the images is random, as is the selection of press clippings. This archive reflects the artist’s personal fetish for the image, in this case of blondes and their collective representation.
Nico Vascellari is considered one of the most important Italian artists of his generation. Coming out of the punk-hardcore scene, his work is a mix of visual art, performance and sound exploration.
