Maybe You Can Live on the Moon in the Next Century
One of the Young British Artists and a leading painter of her generation, Fiona Rae uses distinctive, humorous and complex style challenges to expand the conventions of painting today. Rae was featured in Damien Hirst’s 1988 Freeze exhibition, the 1990 Venice Biennale and short-listed for the Turner Prize in 1991.This slim exhibition catalog from the Leeds Art Gallery, London, examines Rae’s paintings from the last decade when she began to explore, in painterly analogues, many of the new visual conventions familiar to a post- Photoshop generation, mixing graphic and cartoon imagery with abstract marks and spontaneous gestures to create an iconoclastic synthesis of painterly languages. Foreword by Sarah Brown and essay by Gilda Williams.

A Statue Has Remembered Me
Katja Schroeder & Caroline Eggel (Eds.)
A native of Athens, Yorgos Sapountzis has an intimate awareness of how monuments in public spaces affect both a city’s topography and its residents’ identity formation. The Berlin-based artist creates multimedia installations and performances that deftly engage both public and private spaces by taking as their starting points public monuments— objects representing social, collective memory—and adding theaterical, poetic and ritualistic elements. Sometimes building sculptural works of unexpected materials and haphazard style over the monuments themselves, he creates “parasitic sculptures” that link public display with the private spaces of contemporary art. Features an artist interview with Willem de Rooij and essays by Chris Kraus and others.
