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.

FOREIGN & FAMILIAR

Beate Ermacora, Lotte Dinse & Jürgen Tabor (Eds.)

The foreign in the familiar, the familiar in the foreign—a poignant document of the international group exhibition is concerned with the phenomenon of the alien within one’s own culture and sphere of experience. This play on the foreign inspires many artists to confront the unfamiliar and to challenge the rules and codes of conduct within different social groups as well as research the historic transformation of public space. The resulting works, which uncover a panoramic complexity of identities and approaches, trace out aspects of society that are hidden and suppressed, raising questions about accepted social, cultural and political principles and interactions. Featured are works by 14 artists, including Martin Brand, Mark Dion, Coco Fusco, Sofia Hultén, Peter Piller, Gillian Wearing and Tobias Zielony. Essays by exhibition curators Lotte Dinse and Jürgen Tabor, along with Julia Brennacher, Andrea Brockmann, Beate Ermacora and others.
