ROSE FINN-KELCEY

From the 1970s, artist Rose Finn-Kelcey became a central figure in the emerging communities of performance and feminist art in the UK. The complex thinking embodied in her work has touched on such themes as power and the dilemmas of mastery; the myth of the artist; the gaining of a voice; the deceptions of value; the nature of collaboration; the surrogate performer; spirituality; longing and death. This book, extensively illustrated, is the first comprehensive mono- graph on this artist’s work, documenting more than four decades of Finn-Kelcey’s art. Includes over 150 illustrations and essays by Guy Brett, Sarah Kent and Michael Stanley.

ADOLF FLEISCHMANN

An American Abstract Painter?

German-born artist Adolf Fleischmann (1892–1968) was a celebrated abstract painter in the US from the 1950s through the 1960s. He emigrated to the US in 1952 after struggling to survive as an artist through two world wars. In celebration of his rich career, over 100 paintings spanning a 30-year period are beautifully illustrated for the first time in the retrospective catalog and exhibition at Daimler, Berlin (2016), which pairs his New York period (1952–65) with the European works he produced throughout the 1940s. A definitive essay by curator Renate Wiehager contextualizing his work in the American abstract painting scene is followed by several contemporaneous articles discussing the reception of Fleischmann’s work in the US and Europe in the 1950s and 1960s. Rounding out the chronology and bibliography are extensive installation shots from the expansive retrospective. His work resides in collections including the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard, MoMA NY , The Whitney, Grey Art Gallery, NYU, and throughout Europe. Contributions by Raymond Bayer, Carlo Belloli, Benedikt Fred Dolbin, Adolf Fleischmann, Sanson Flexor, Roger van Gindertael, Eugen Gomringer, Kurt Leonhard, Thomas Schnalke, Michel Seuphor, Darío Suo and the Daimler curator Renate Wiehager.

FLESH AND THE COSMOS

William E. Jones

“The most beautiful cosmos is a pile of random sweepings.” This aphorism by the Greek philosopher Heraclitus provided the inspiration for the book Flesh and the Cosmos. Artist and filmmaker William E. Jones’ project, which he calls “automatic illustration,” shows the results of Internet image searches based upon a century’s worth of translations of Heraclitus’ phrase from eight words in Ancient Greek. The images range from the sublime to the ridiculous. The artist, whose work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Hammer Museum, Wexner Center for the Arts and Tate Modern, writes: “A text from the very beginning of philosophy in the Western tradition … can make the unspoken manias and taboos of contemporary society available to us in a new way.” The fragment has also been the subject of scholarly debate, summarized here in essays by classicists Jonathan Barnes and Richard Fletcher.

MAARTJE FOLKERINGA

Trick or Trait

This first monograph of the work of young Dutch sculptor Maartje Fokeringa proves a lively cut-and-paste sourcebook of the artist’s colorful explorations of popular culture. Her unusual artistic practice is couched in the relationship between our personal belongings and our perception of self in society. She creates large figurative sculptures representing complex characters inspired by people she meets and observes in everyday life. Her overscaled human forms are significant for the accessories that adorn them and the gallery walls. From ornamental figurines to abstracted jewelry to paint-splattered biomorphic forms, Fokeringa is concerned with the use and exchange of objects as forms of nonverbal communication—totems signaling status, class and value. This exhibition catalog contains early work, as well as the new sculptures fabricated during a residency at the Beeldenstorm foundry in Eindhoven and later installed in the workspace at Onomatopee.

FOR THE USE OF THOSE WHO SEE

A collection of texts by a group of international art superstars comments on an extraordinary exhibition of mostly film and video works exploring the “supposed opposition of seeing and not-seeing.” Leading the investigation is artist Javier Tellez references a classic text on blindness (Diderot’s Letter on the Blind, for the Use of Those Who See), and juxtaposes it with the story of the blind men and the elephant, which insists that perception always depends on a particular point of view. Includes works by John Baldessari on the pure tension of thermometry, Harun Farocki on acute pain and Luc Teymans on eloquently simple, painterly shadows. This series of short texts creates a retrospective, photographic march through the exhibition, and a learned as well as entertaining explanation of the phenomenon by Lambert Wiesinger.

THE FORCES BEHIND THE FORMS

Geology, Matter, Process in Contemporary Art

Beate Ermacora, Martin Hentschel & Helen Hirsch (Eds.)

The Forces Behind the Forms, titled after a phrase coined by artist Per Kirkeby, who also coined the term “Anthropocene,” takes up the widely conducted debate over how much our environment is influenced by human activity. Comprehensive and fully illustrated, this substantial hardcover catalog documents a variety of compelling projects and installations by 12 artists—Olafur Eliasson, Per Kirkeby, Roger Hiorns and Giuseppe Penone, among others—engaging the geo-aesthetics of matter and transformative processes in both nature and art in installations, images and objects. Each section devoted to an artist and project is supported by extensive color and black-and-white images and accompanied by explanatory texts. Complementing the artist sections and broadening the discourse are six essays by art historians, scientists and curators who discuss the artistic use of geological history as a space for thought in relation to politics and science, and the consequences of our relationship to nature, matter and, ultimately, to ourselves. Contributions by Jonathan Bragdon, Nina Canell, Julian Charrière, Olafur Eliasson, Ilana Halperin, Roger Hiorns, Per Kirkeby, Katie Paterson, Guiseppe Penone, Jens Risch & Guests, Hans Schabus and George Steinmann.
