Green with Envy

According to New Zealand-based artist Layla Rudneva-Mackay, the photographic work in this exhibition catalog has emerged from the “ ruins” of her sculptural practice, and exists in parallel with her graphic work, painting and writing. Her evocative, mystical photos have evolved from a practice characterized by poetic slips and language holes. Such photographic work characteristically involves forms, figures and situations set up against interior and exterior backdrops; their gestures and activities vague and sometimes obscured or altered by fabric and paint. This oversized, soft-covered catalog surveys her photographic works from 2003 to 2010. Their theatrical quality is not surprising; the artist also works as a costume designer and fabricator on films such as The Chronicles of Narnia.

Paul Albert Leitner

0-24. Signs and Advertisements

As sensitive as Paul Albert Leitner is to the poetry of everyday life, he is matter-of-fact and objective in his photographic approach, and somewhat a documentarist. In this new book, he discovers signs and advertising. On his countless journey throughout Europe and its post-socialist fringes, in the Latin world, in New York’s urban space and the American South; Leitner find images that are at times - seductive, repugnant, nostalgic-romantic … Leitner, however is not a travel photographer nor someone attracted by the exotic in foreign climes. The individual photo is actually the poetry, with narratives, personal autobiographical and entire world histories created as a series of images or book. In 0-24, Leitner frees the facade of their imposed clarity, literally revealing their concrete form and color. Like Atget, he opens up the surreal levels inherent to economic activities that appear to be so targeted.

nude, pensive

Hemma Schmutz (Ed.)

The title nude, pensive stems from a postcard found by Austrian artist Ulrike Lienbacher—a pin-up girl on a bed, lost in contemplation. Lienbacher’s book expands upon her 2010 exhibition Elite  Bodies//  Revolt at the Salzburger Kunstverein and reflects the many aspects of nudity and ways of viewing naked bodies in the history of visual culture: as an ancient mytho-historical motif in art history, a learning tool for students in figure drawing classes, and the object of the pornographic gaze. This richly illustrated volume contains new drawings, preceded by black-and-white photographs of body studies and previously unpublished photographic works—museum scenes, still lifes and interiors. Once again this artist entrances us with her seductive and sensual but simple drawings. Texts by cultural theorist Elke Krasny and curator Thomas Trummer contemplate the role of the nude in contemporary art-making.
