PASSINGS TO PRESENTS

Silence & Golden in the Work of Fillipo Minelli

Italian artist Fillipo Minelli has produced a body of land art based work that in his own words, “points out the gap between the reality we still live in and the ephemeral world of technologies.” Travelling to remote and economically strained corners of the world—from Mali to Cambodia—Minelli tags favelas and hillsides with terms from contemporary social media: “Flickr” on a lean-to in Phnom Phen, “Facebook” on a landfill in Barnako. This ephemeral poetry, moving beyond its roots in street art, disseminates our social networks by simultaneously criticizing our misplaced fixation on virtual technology and affirming opportunities for real-life sharing and negotiating. In Minelli’s first artist book, texts are featured on neutralized white pages while their corresponding visual is hidden yet accessible inside Japanese folded pages. This conceptual format confronts the typical hyper-speed of image circulation in our networked society.

MICHA PATINIOTT

Curiously Human

In 2010, the prestigious Stedelijk Museum Schiedam presented the first solo museum show for young Dutch painter Micha Patiniott along with this slim but wonderfully engaging exhibition catalog. Patiniott’s paintings, rooted in personal experience and imagination, capture reality with a twist. In his work, trivial situations soon get out of hand and lead to poetic, bizarre or amusing images. Patiniott is primarily a story-teller. His paintings are impulses to anecdotes or scenes from a narrative. Viewers can project their emotions on to them or use the ingredients for their own interpretations. Patiniott’s stories are unfinished. They do not confirm images, they create them. Patiniott’s career includes a year residency at the Fine Arts Work Ctr., Provincetown, Massachusetts, along with continued international exposure.

RICHARD PATTERSON

Richard Patterson’s complex, multilayered paintings sit firmly within the grand tradition of European and American art, to which he has added his own. One of the Young British Artists to emerge in the late 1980s, and a participant in both the Freeze and Sensation exhibitions, the artist has continued to challenge and push the boundaries of painting today. His collage paintings are steeped in pop culture allusions ranging from films, magazines and music to advertising and consumerism, while simultaneously testing the links between painting, iconography and the narrative. At long last a comprehensive survey on Patterson’s rich career. Texts by Toby Kamps and Jeremy Strick and an artist interview by Martin Herbert.

NOVA PAUL

Form Next to Form Next to Form

Gwynneth Porter (Ed.)

This trip into Maori culture and landscape is a collaboration between New Zealand artist Noval Paul and the celebrated graphic design collective Åbäke. Paul’s 16mm film, This  is  not  Dying, was shot using a three-color separation process, later composed to form a single image with a creeping aura of turquoise, pink, lilac and apricot. Mesmerizing multi-colored stills from the film are reproduced along with a poetic essay from Paul and editor Gwynneth Porter, “The Virtue of Trees,” that, like a tree, grew from conversations spanning ideas of sovereignty, resistance, film analysis, genealogy and care of self and the world around us. Evocatively accompanied by a 7” LP with a recording of ‘Whakarongo Mai,’ played by Ben Tawhiti on slide and steel guitar (released by 1:12 Records, Auckland).

EDDIE PEAKE

The Forever Loop

The second title in the exciting new Barbican series documenting art installations at the unique Curve gallery (yes, it is a curved space), London-based artist Eddie Peake’s Forever Loop combines live performance, sculpture, video, installation and painting to create an energetic gallery experience. Engaging with sexuality, elf-representation and language, Peake’s latest installation is a spectacle that posits the body as sculptural and sexual object. Accompanying the artist’s exhibition (2016), this volume examines the playful web of performance, sculpture, video and painting that Peake created for the space. Alongside installation views, related work and an interview with the artist by Alona Pardo, an essay by Omar Kholeif explores the allusions embedded in Peake’s work from the classical nude to pop culture and underground music.

LON PENNOCK

Works

Thomas Köllhofer & Frits Scholten

Co-published by Stichting Lon Pennock and Jap Sam Books, this attractive hardcover survey catalog brings together over 100 pieces from the playful, poetic body of work of Dutch artist Lon Pennock (b. 1945). By investigating simple forms seemingly borrowed from objective reality, Lon Pennock developed an aesthetic language which draws solely on such geometric elements as the rectangular solid, the cube, the cone or the cylinder. As co-author Frits Scholten remarks, “Often in Pennock’s oeuvre, movement and peripety are created through the use of diagonals—in sculpture, always a classic way to break through the stagnation and to suggest Iife.”

PER/FORM

How to Do Things with[out] Words

Chantal Pontbriand (Ed.)

In recent years, Madrid has become one of the most active European cities in stimulating experimental art, and the CAM2 (Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo) in Madrid one of its most important centers. Curated by Parachute founder Chantal Pontbriand, PER/FORM aims to reclaim the museum as platform for live experimentation, with 16 installations and performances exploring how art deals with reality in a performative way. The project included an exhibition, three “Intensity Days”of performances (as outlined by Lyotard’s notion of art as situation) and this generously illustrated exhibition catalog. Performances, interactive installations, videos and sound installations in a variety of visual essays—including musical scores, drawings, documents and photographs— and theoretical texts by the 30 participating artists make for a captivating look at the shifting roles of politics, experience and immateriality in art today.
