10 minutes after
For the last 20 years, New York–based German contemporary artist Josephine Meckseper’s practice has interrogated consumerism, politics and art history through juxtapositions of images and objects. Drawn from the visual and material cultures of protest and political activism, advertising, cinema and early 20th-century display architecture, Meckseper’s works are visually confrontational yet subtle, relying on strategies of infiltration. In her new work, 10 minutes after, Meckseper (b. 1964) deploys the readymade object as a form of “analog recording device” in which found materials—shelves, wall vitrines, display racks—become repositories of social, cultural, political and economic significance. The oversized softbound publication, designed by ZAK Group, presents Meckseper’s recent exhibition at Timothy Taylor, A gallery of “psychoimages”, as both a document and artist’s book. Two insightful essays are included by independent curator/writer Piper Marshall and writer/editor Domenick Ammirati. Her work is extensively collected throughout Europe and the US including the Whitney, MoMA, and Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY ; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and more.
