Claudette Johnson

<
>

This catalogue is published on the occasion of the exhibition, Claudette Johnson: I Came to Dance at Modern Art Oxford, 1 June – 8 September 2019. Johnson creates large-scale studies of black men and women that are both intimate and powerful, as she notes: ‘I am interested in our humanity, our feelings and our politics; some things which have been neglected.’
Her exhibition at Modern Art Oxford marks Johnson’s first significant institutional show of her work, spanning four decades and including approximately 30 paintings and drawings in pastel, paint, ink and charcoal. The texts in this exhibition catalogue offer fresh insights into her practice and the dynamic impact of her association with the First National Black Arts Convention organised by the BLK Art Group in Wolverhampton, 1982. Alongside a selection of archival materials, the catalogue includes an interview with Johnson.

Johanna Billing

This film poster for Pulheim Jam Session (2015) features a production still from Johanna Billing’s titular work. Billing’s film explores notions of locality, the logic of staging and participation. A traffic jam and a jamming session are two dissimilar scenarios, yet in Billing’s film their respective conditions and constraints are explored simultaneously. In its first iteration, Pulheim Jam Session took place as a participatory act within the confines of ‘Stadtbild.Intervention’, an outdoors project established in 1998 and supported by the city of Pulheim. Billing choreographed an assembly of more than 60 cars carrying over 100 people from the Pulheim region of Germany. The staged procession, marking the short commuting distance to Cologne, set off an intentional traffic jam in the countryside on a balmy Saturday afternoon.

This catalogue is jointly realised by three public institutions as part of ‘The 3 Series’, which staged a multi-venue exhibition of I’m Lost Without Your Rhythm at Camden Arts Centre (2009), Arnolfini in Bristol (2009) and Modern Art Oxford (2010). Together with an introductory text, essay, interview passages, and a selection of video stills capturing views of a choreography workshop in Billing’s work, the publication documents Billing’s interest in the politics of participation and collective experience.

This publication features texts and snapshots related to the production of the film, piano performance and live event, Pulheim Jam Session, staged in 2011.


‘The readily-made associations between “jamming” as a mode of musical performance and the traffic jam of cars are, of course, afoot. But beyond rehearsing this metaphor, Pulheim Jam Session also quietly circumscribes a loosely-defined set of social and historical conditions specific to Pulheim, to its incorporation as a city in 1975, and to its unique status in northern Europe as having one of the highest concentrations of automobiles.’

In the work of 2017 Turner Prize nominee Andrea Büttner, spatial motifs unfold and lay bare their very conditions of exposure. Corner (Grey) (2011) manifests an arbitrary coordinate shaped by trilateral convergence of colour planes. At once a conventional, geometric shorthand and a familiar place of banishment, the corner motif in Büttner’s work points to nuances of experienced shame and conjures up expressions such as ‘go stand in the corner.’

In Critique of Judgement (2012), Büttner constructs a constellation of images informed by her imagining of Immanuel Kant’s reflections in his writing of the Critique of Judgment (1790). This screen print on paper displays Büttner’s incisive organisation of variegated systems of knowledge, creating interrelations and signalling affinities among diverse image sources to provide an alternate means of articulating Kant’s philosophy. The Critique of Judgement (2012) was originally presented at documenta 13.

A compendium of beggars’ depictions as imagined across visual cultures, this artist’s book by Büttner examines the fraught associations of poverty in relation to art history, theology and the politics of social benefits. Notions of shame, vulnerability and dignity correspond with featured reproductions of the artist’s woodcut series on the same subject. This publication also draws from Büttner’s extensive research at the Warburg Institute in London including sixteenth-century vignettes from the Liber Vagatorum and iconographies of shepherds and kings from nativity scenes.

In this artist’s book, Büttner displays photographs of moss together with drawings by Gwen John (1876-1939). The book is based on research the artist undertook between 2011 and 2014 at the National Museum Cardiff, which houses many different collections all under one roof. These include an art collection with the world’s largest body of drawings by John, and a natural history collection with an internationally renowned moss collection. The book was published to coincide with the exhibition Andrea Büttner: Hidden Marriage at National Museum Cardiff, 22 February – 2 June 2014.

In parallel with Büttner’s exhibition at Museum Ludwig in 2015, an illustrated edition of Immanuel Kant’s Critique of Judgment (1790) was produced by the artist. Büttner constructs a sequence of images informed by her imagining of Immanuel Kant’s reflections in his writing of the Critique of Judgment (1790). A selection of historical pictures, among other marginalia, from Kant’s library as well as those culled from the public domain are purposely interspersed within this artist’s rendition of the complete text of Critique of Judgment. While providing a counter-image to Kant’s systematised knowledge production, Büttner’s own system affirms the traces of Kant’s philosophy while retaining its own aesthetic logic. Akin to a kind of heterogenous subtext, as Büttner expresses in the introduction to the book, the images which follow appear to have always been there, as though already invoked by Kant’s use of language. In certain instances, however, the images are used as devices which support, emphasise, or undermine the text—the spatial layout and negotiation of meaning at times complimentary, in others, challenging.

Liber Vagatorum (The Book of Vagabonds) is a book from the 16th century that was published in different places, different languages and large editions across Europe during the Reformation period. It warns of beggars and their ‘tricks’, of the secret language of beggars and vagabonds, of ‘false’ artists and pets that hold out their hands in front of city gates and church doors. A version of Liber Vagatorum was even published by Martin Luther himself. The book marks a turning point from the medieval concepts of poverty and caritas to the concept of the work ethic enshrined in Protestantism. It introduces the difference between legitimate and illegitimate poverty.

Knut Henrik Henriksen’s Eyeliner (2013–ongoing) is a site-specific architectural intervention that is both subtle and grandiose. With a simple gesture, Henriksen brings our attention to the physical structure of a space by drawing a line around select architectural features, such as extremities of a wall, laboriously marked using bright colours. This work can be remade and transposed across different spaces, from commercial spaces to domestic dwellings.

Architectural Doubts is a major survey monograph examining 20 years of Henriksen’s practice. The book looks in detail at his central concepts of ‘architectural doubts’ and ‘architectural frustrations’. Henriksen’s sculptures and interventions are often defined around spatial volumes in structures that have gone through change over time. Buildings re-articulated via ‘architectural doubts’ include Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, Kunstmuseum Bern and Villa Savoye by Le Corbusier. Harnessing the form of ‘the book’, Henriksen has kept the ‘waste space’ around the standard A4 format and invited fellow artist Karl Holmqvist to use this as a project space. This book works as a manual linking Henriksen’s thoughts around sculpture, architecture, materials, standard forms, doubts and frustration.

Claire Hooper was the winner of the 2010 Baloise Art Prize. This catalogue was published in tandem with the artist’s exhibition at mumok where she presented her prize-winning video Nyx (2010). The work is part of a trilogy that includes two other works from 2011, Aoide and Eris. In her films, Hooper interweaves narratives from the present with characters and concepts from Greek mythology. These become elements of a kaleidoscopic mélange of reality and fiction in which Hooper, in the manner of a Nouveau Roman, also dispenses with the linear succession of past, present and future.

Eline McGeorge

This catalogue was produced following Eline McGeorge’s solo exhibition, As Spaces Fold, Companions Meet at Oslo Kunstforening, 21 January – 21 February 2016. In the exhibition, McGeorge treats folds as a visual and thematic motif, including the notion of folded space—an interpretation inspired by science fiction. Folded space permits the coexistence of fiction and reality to cast new constellations across time and space. McGeorge articulates conditions of alienation and hybridisation informed by ecological crises, the legacies of feminist politics, and the potential of science fiction. This publication includes works from the exhibition and texts by the artist, Marcus Verhagen, Marit Paasche and Marianne Hultman.

A-W-O-R-L-D-O-F-O-U-R-O-W-N is McGeorge’s second publication by Dent-De-Leone. It features a script of several characters, all named Cosmo, who are in turn Maya Deren, Nina Hagen or Virginia Woof. These characters are isolated somewhere between the 1970s and the present, in a world similar to our own. Rejecting a singular paper standard—set in both European A4 and American letter sizes—the publication, which is made from recycled £5 notes, accents the obscurities of Western standards.

The richly illustrated publication features a bipartite essay by Marchand: ‘what Bruno Pacheco is attempting to do with these tables and books does not compromise the essence of his work: the construction of a pictorial corpus that critically and sensitively engages with us in its double condition as a group of images cut out of the world and a group of skins coating a surface. What they do to confer—and to otherwise unimaginable scales, levels and complexities—is the play of recognition, evocation and strangeness all his works offer us.’

Falke Pisano’s Learning in Proximity (2015) belongs to a body of work that investigates the cultural values embedded in mathematics.

‘Two years ago, by chance, I read a text about how cultural values have permeated the way we think about mathematics and mathematics education. Although I was aware of how mathematics has been instrumentalised, more often than not maintaining and pushing inequality, I realised then that I was still attached to the idea of mathematics as a universal, purely abstract—and therefore value-free—language. I even considered it as one, potentially complete, body of knowledge. The text, which advocated an anti-racist review of maths education, offered a more complex view. In my eagerness, I absorbed this as a full antithesis: mathematics fallen off the pedestal of logic and reason, covered with the dirt of past and present, insisting on a claim to “truth” that had long been revealed as a delusion. A mathematics pretending to be one perfect language developed in an almost perfect linear way, to conceal that it is in fact a set of mathematics appropriated by various groups of people throughout a series of cross-cultural encounters. Finally, a mathematics that is unable to accept that it is but one amongst many—different but equal.’

Belonging to a series of ‘spray’ drawings from 2006, this work was produced by applying spray paint on objects placed on manuscript paper.

‘Later in the day, Proctor is sitting outside, pointing her camera phone at the sky. The cloud coverage is complete. A solar eclipse is happening for just over four hours, technically visible in our part of the world, so she attempts to film it. A passer by approaches: “Can you see anything?” “No, I’m just pretending to film something,” Proctor replies, and continues filming. In the end, a representative still taken from the video is a nondescript, impenetrable, solid grey.’

Super Ruda (2010) is Proctor’s alter ego, conceived during the artist’s residency in Cali, Colombia. Borne out of a desire to blend within the setting of Cali, the character’s comportment of a black wig along with a colourful cape more closely resembled a standout super hero or cartoon figure. The act of roaming and discovering the city was less a performance than an emulation of native dwelling. Proctor conceived this poster as a tribute and salutary mark on the city’s building fabric and skin. In time covered or displaced by their kindred, the posters shed temporal records as gestures of the impermanency of living conditions.

Foregrounding the non-spectacular is central to Anne Tallentire’s practice. Her formal consideration of industrial materials contest confines of utilitarian attitudes. The artist’s architectural arrangements elevate concealed structures and systems into view. Turn IV (2016) belongs to a series of such arrangements that recompose and subvert the bearings of subfloor conduit and insulation.

This work is part of Tallentire’s series of C-type photographs From, in and with (2015), depicting arrangements of common objects such as a ruler, metal rig and plastic cover. This body of work was created for Still, We Work, a touring exhibition and publication project commissioned by the National Women’s Council of Ireland (NWCI) in 2013. The 24 photographs from Tallentire’s series corresponds with 24 specially commissioned 100-word texts by women working in architecture describing buildings located between the NWCI offices and the former Jacob’s biscuit factory, the site of the 1913 Dublin Lockout workers’ strike. Tallentire’s photographs thus function as a form of translation and plan-making, playing with form and context to reflect on Dublin’s built environment and the role of contemporary women’s work within it. The series, according to Tallentire, is an attempt to ‘speak to the accidental, the disparate and fractured elements of life today and the frequently hidden determinants that affect and shape experience.’
