MARIA LOBODA

Oh, Wilderness

This first monograph on the mystical-historical practice of Maria Loboda contains a selection of her work since 2009, including her installation at dOCUMENTA (13), “This Work is Dedicated to an Emperor,” an army of potted cypress trees which moved through the landscape during the course of the exhibition. Oh,  Wilderness demonstrates the artist’s equation between language and materiality as it works the other way around, translating materials expressive of a certain weak semiotics into language. Through these materials, nature is observed and read—now consti- tuting a grammar, rigorously arbitrary, formal, and conventional. Featured essay by Lars Bang Larsen points to spiritualization in Loboda’s works, Isobel Harbison analyzes the engagement with artifact in Loboda’s approach to sculpture, and a Q+A between the artist, Harbison and Caterina Rivera traces Loboda’s career and intellectual context.

SHARON LOCKHART | NOA ESHKOL

Eva Wilson & Daniela Zyman (Eds.)

A comprehensive exhibition, originating at LACMA and traveling on to Vienna’s Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary and the New York Jewish Museum, showcased Los Angeles–based artist Sharon Lockhart’s multimedia meditation in conversation with the late Israeli dancer and choreographer Noa Eshkol. Eshkol is best known for developing the Eshkol-Wachman Movement Notation system in the 1950s, which uses a combination of symbols and numbers to define the motion of any limb around its joint. Lockhart’s images capture Eshkol’s students in performance, bringing her visionary choreographic work to light. The book features installation photographs, film stills, archival material and wall carpets by Eshkol. Texts by Walead Beshty, Ramsay Burt, Ifat Finkelman, Noémie Solomon and Eva Wilson, among others.

RICHARD LONG

A Reader

Clarrie Wallis (Ed.)

Charting Richard Long’s critical reception, this well-illustrated anthology of writings deftly discloses the sculptor’s radical rethinking of the relationship between art and landscape. Widely considered one of the most influential British minimalist artists of his generation, Long (b. 1945) has maintained a practice that stems from his deep love of nature and solitary walking. He first came to prominence in the late 1960s and is part of a generation of international artists that extended the possibilities of sculpture beyond traditional materials and methods. This comprehensive volume includes over 30 essays and reviews on the artist from the late 1960s to the present, drawn together here for the first time. The texts are accompanied by key interviews, a selection of the artist’s own statements, and an introductory essay by editor Clarrie Wallis (curator of Modern and Contemporary British Art at Tate, London) that examines Long’s unique position within postwar art history.

SERGE ONNEN

The Lost Cent

This graphic novel relates a day in the life of a lucky penny. Celebrated Franco-Dutch illustrator Serge Onnen conceived of this project as a commentary on the transitory nature of value.“ All things of value are defenseless,” reads Lucebert’s famous poem. That line, immortalized in a public neon sculpture in Rotterdam, formed Onnen’s inspiration. But what if a defenseless being is worthless, he asks? With less face value than its production cost, it could be the perfect object to raise questions about value. A homeless coin becomes problematic and unwanted, traveling through a series of rust-hued ink drawings, echoing the missing hole in the center of each page where the missing coin should be. Featuring texts from Olav Velthuis and Charles Baudelaire.

LOUISE MENZIES

Pursuit of an Ideal

An holistic amalgam of spirituality and physical health, the School of Radiant Living was founded in New Zealand by the English psychologist Herbert Sutcliffe and flourished in that country from the 1930s through the 1980s. New Zealand artist Louise Menzies has investigated this optimistic, mid-century movement through several installations, a film, and now this rich artist’s book. Bringing together a wealth of ephemera on the School of Radiant Living, she imaginatively re-configures her materials to draw out broader tensions between the individual and the collective, the practical and the ideal, the nostalgic and the utopian visions. Including a poster insert and pamphlet, this perceptive publication re-introduces us to an idealistic past.

Lea Lublin

A Retrospective

Stephanie Weber (Ed.)

In 1968, the Paris-based Argentinian conceptual artist Lea Lublin exhibited herself with her eight-month-old son in a Paris gallery (Yvon Lambert) for three weeks in what was considered a scandalous exhibition. The title, The Striptease of Jesus as a Child, was a conversation with the public on the subliminal eroticism in Christian paintings. Relatively unknown to an international audience until now, Lublin was part of a generation of feminist artists such as Judy Chicago and Hannah Wilke fiercely committed to overcoming the boundaries separating art and life. This profusely illustrated and comprehensive catalog of her sensual, challenging and didactic work spans three decades of photographs, drawings, wall installations and videos, and includes documentation of a reconstruction of one of her most ambitious works, Fluvio Subtunal (1969), as well as off-site public interventions. Featuring contributions by Monika Bayer-Wermuth, Thibault Boulvain, Catherine Francblin, Isabel Plante, Teresa Riccardi and Stephanie Weber, plus translations of Lea Lublin’s writings and a key text on Lublin by Pierre Restan from 1969.

ARMANDO LULAJ

Albanian Trilogy: A Series of Devious Stratagems

Marco Scotini (Ed.)

Albanian playwright and film artist Armando Lulaj’s (b. 1980) project for the 56th Venice Biennale Albanian Pavilion is a time capsule of the country’s past treading the line between fact and fiction. Combining evocation and documentation, Lulaj conveys the historical-political phase during which Albania built its inter- national identity with archival materials, three videos and an enormous whale’s skeleton—both protagonist and silent witness—representing the Hobbesian principle of sovereignty. Complementing the exhibition, the compact hardcover catalog-reader includes essays by curator Marco Scotini, historian Elidor Mehilli, NYU critic and philosopher Boris Groys and theorist Jonida Gashi. Film stills and original and archival photographs ruminate on communism’s mechanisms of power and socializing myths through the lens of Albania’s geopolitical situation. A conversation between Hou Hanru and Lulaj, along with Edi Muki’s reading of the trilogy, focuses on the cross-disciplinary methods of historical reconstruction located between the role of artist and social archaeologist.
