Book First Edition
Soft cover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Limited numbered edition of 500. Apropos of Van Gogh, magic and spells: all the people who, for two months now, went to see the exhibition of his works at the Musée de l Orangerie, are they really sure they remember everything they did and all that happened to them every evening of the months of February, March, April and May 1946? Was there not a certain evening when the atmosphere of the air and the streets became liquid, gelatinous, unstable, and when the light from the stars and the heavenly vault disappeared? And Van Gogh who painted the café in Arles was not there. But I was in Rodez, which means, still on earth, while all the residents of Paris must have felt, for one night, very close to leaving it. A new English language translation and the first time this essay has been available as a single publication. All books are sent signed and tracked.

And leaving it, and then coming back to it, and at the edge of the writing, always having to write, as if his paradise hadn t the ripeness to affirm itself. With one exception, and that was not what she said, my love, o my love, come with me, this way. That fragile moment, that absolute fall into what, all of a sudden, that moment, that fraction of the instant, that momentariness, falls into here, and here is the one thing to try to relate, to attempt, and yet these words would disappear when transforming the ways and the leaves on the memory. To turn all into the formulations of what is somehow an accident, an opening moment, opened, and where the room is reflected, the lid is inlaid with a memory, a falling through that which is removed, that which would play and be able to come back through the sides, through what ought to be, allowing us to ponder the obscure, the less than clear, the clarity that fights between thought and what would continue to work, to warm and comfort itself, to be the passion through which comes the notion, singing in its own language, something that would appear, disappear, as on the outside, as outside the image, no one there either from or there to. A fragmentary existence, a fraction of itself, what is best to be scuttled. - Paul Buck, from 'Marthe, Dear Marthe (Nakedness)'.

Soft cover. Condition: New. No Jacket. 2nd Edition. Devised as a way to indulge in their interest in literature and explore the parallels between systematic painting and formulaic writing, the artists Lucy McKenzie and Alan Michael present their collection of crime stories Unlawful Assembly. First published in private limited edition it was intended as a cheap holiday read to titillate and entertain summer visitors to the Mediterranean island of Stromboli, and as a piece of site-specific work; the location of the action and the place in which it is read being the same. The Unlawful Assembly cast of characters are united by narcissism, ineffectuality and paranoia, and like fast food s ratio of fat, salt and sugar to protein, these stories confront pathology in a similarly consumable (and cynical) package of calibrated sex, violence and humour. Lucy McKenzie and Alan Michael have familiarised themselves with the methodologies of illusionistic painting, trompe l oeil and photorealism respectively. The visual art subsequently generated by Unlawful Assembly includes work by Josephine Pryde, with whom the artists collaborated to produce this second edition s cover image.

They are in many ways conspicuously all the same. Nine-by-eight-inch, staple bound, with white covers bearing the title of whatever project they encapsulate and typically featuring a die-cut hole as their cover design, which reveals an image beneath. The inside covers are printed with a repeating logo pattern, which also refers specifically to the hosting institution or to another aspect of the project. The internal structure, too, is consistent. The font used is Times Roman or more recently Bembo, and the content is organized into a title page, a list of acknowledgments often in reverse alphabetical order (Z-A), an introductory text, and one or more critical essays on your work accompanying reproductions of both past and current projects. At the end is a very short biography listing only the year or city of your birth (1945, Los Angeles or Hollywood) and where you are currently residing. Then, conspicuously, you never list your exhibition history, but instead offer a "Selected Bibliography" of articles and essays about your work. Seeing any one of these catalogs on its own, the design is innocuous enough that all these particularities recede beneath the informative capability of the catalog, but after twenty-plus years, this consistency is quite striking. Anyone even remotely familiar with your working methods can assume that this repetition of uniformity is anything but arbitrary. Jay Sanders.

Soft cover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. The exhibition Atelier EB: Passer-by has an essential element of the fashion industry on the subject: the world of mannequins and displays. Since the surrealists took up the mannequin in the early 20th century, this object has established itself in the visual arts as a recurring motif. Lipscombe and McKenzie bring the individual disciplines of window display design to light, present radical thinkers and doers who have broken down the boundaries between art and window display design, and create a convincing narrative that brings ethnography, sculpture, puppets and world exhibitions together with our digital future. The catalog is a meticulously elaborated study of the hierarchies that traditionally separate art and design, and thereby questions the boundary between commercial staging and non-commercial exhibitions. ***** Atelier EB: Passer-by examines an essential facet of the fashion industry: the world of mannequins and retail display. Since the Surrealists took them up in the early twentieth century, mannequin have been an enduring motif within fine art. Lipscombe and McKenzie un-pack the disciplines of window dressing, look to radical thinkers and makers who dissolved the dividing line between fine art and commercial display, and piece together a compelling narrative that encompasses ethnography, statuary, dolls, the world fairs and our digital future. This catalog, like the traveling exhibition, is a meticulous and idiosyncratic study of the hierarchies which have historically separated the spheres of art and design, All books are sent signed and tracked.

Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Conceived by Atkins as an artist's book, the main body is a collage of imagery, text, and graphical elements. Ed Atkins makes videos, draws, and writes, reflexively performing the ways in which contemporary modes of representation attempt to do justice to powerfully emotional experience. Atkins' work is at once a disturbing diagnosis of a digitally mediated present day and an absurd prophecy of things to come. It is skeptical of the promises of technology yet suggests that it is possible to salvage subjectivity, suspending a hysterical sentimentality within the desperate lives of the surrogates he creates. This catalog accompanies the exhibition that is developed as a collaboration between Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. With new essays by the editors and by Irene Calderoni and Chiara Vecchiarelli, the book is accompanied by a scholarly timeline and an anthology that includes a selection of the artist's unpublished writings, plus critical writings by Kirsty Bell, Melissa Gronlund, Martin Herbert, Leslie Jamison, Joe Luna, Jeff Nagy, Mike Sperlinger, and Patrick Ward, together with interviews by Katie Guggenheim, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Beatrix Ruf, and Richard Whitby.

This book, his last, broke more than twenty years of silence from Pierre Klossowski the writer. Its origin: a commission in 1992 for a play by a Viennese theatre. Fascinated since childhood by this mode of expression, Klossowski immediately saw the character Ogier from The Baphomet on stage and set to work once again at his writing desk. However, time had enriched his imagination, and aided by the excitement of a dramaturgical finality, he reworked his novel intently.The commission running aground, he transformed the scenario into a récit. From the succession of metamorphoses The Immortal Adolescent was born. Today it presents itself as undauntedly identical to its first model as totally different from it. Such is the game of the cycle of time. All books are sent signed and tracked.

In 1979 Pierre Guyotat decided to make a recording of his recently completed but still unpublished text Le Livre. 150 hours of studio time was taken up during the course of that summer to arrive at this final recording. It would be another five years before Gallimard published Le Livre. Guyotat has stated: I am aware that what I do in Le Livre cannot be readily understood without my speaking the text, pronouncing it publicly. How much time then must I wait until this work is really read and understood as an object to be read with the eyes? This material I produce is strange even to me, actually, because there are really no criteria to measure it with, especially as it cannot be categorised as literature.

Soft cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Limited Edition. The accompanying volume to Lucy McKenzie's 'Bi-Curious', Gulliver s Last works by Pierre Klossowski, this is the only English translation of this volume. These two volumes of disproportion and trompe l oeil suggested their parallel publication. When I show Gulliver surveying and pacing out the vastly oversized body of a woman, this body could never be exchanged. One can see that this sort of mental or pathological exaggeration applies to the criteria of sensibility, that all sensibility presupposes the forgetting of a very early distortion. The Gulliverian perspective abuses the relative scale of visual sensuality. I admit that this disturbing obsession comes from my very early childhood. . I take the framework of Gulliver: a relic of the child s diminished perspective, as in certain neurotic moments where a magnifica- tion of exaggeration appears, at the same time as that preference for partial objects, which says that the part stands for the whole. Note this explains my obsession with making the hand equivalent to the whole body: this is just an instrument of voluptuousness that has no other purpose than it s own experimentation.
