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.

Henriksen’s Envelope (2015) is part a consummate, geometric equipoise but also itself part of a series of architectural meditations on formats, for instance the International Organisation for Standardisation’s A series. Henriksen brings our attention to the physical structures and constraints of such bureaucratic conventions by exploring their extremities and the industrial tendency to dispose and order.

Henriksen’s doubtful paper monuments conjure decidedly subjective projections: insecure and unstable, their imagined architectures are domestically scaled in precarious pillars of wallpaper. These sculptures were initially conceived in response to creating large-scale, expensive and often bureaucratic projects. The rolls of store-bought wallpapers are both economical and readily available, allowing for impulsive creation while evidencing a certain insecurity or nervousness. As Henriksen says, ‘a kind of hopelessness’ pervades these delicate, imagined monuments – a frailty in which one finds an appealing counter-production. Henriksen notes: ‘They frustrated me with their fragility. I don’t know exactly what they are – they are “doubt”, they are nonverbal. I don’t know where I’m going with them, how they should be titled, or how to preserve them.’ These wallpaper assemblages ultimately model both failings and feelings, their compositional uncertainty and material precarity are counterintuitive preservations of awkwardness.

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.

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.

In Büttner’s work 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.’

This catalogue was produced by Tate Publishing in close collaboration with Himid and covering areas of her work hitherto unexplored. The traditional, artist-monograph format, here, instead serves as a useful manual for readers. ‘How to paint on things’, ‘How to write in code’, ‘How to do magic’, ‘How to be funny’ and ‘How to make a life plan using poetry’ are amongst topics that address key artistic interests of Himid’s career. Explorations of the history of painting, political satire, poetry and the spoken word, architecture, textiles and the tacit messages extracted from pattern are running themes that thread through the publication. A selection of the poetry that has influenced the artist throughout her career, new text from the artist herself and contributions from authors of a varied expertise offer perspectives that set Himid’s work and artistic interests into wider contexts.

‘When something you used to have has disappeared or is missing, an arm, a lover or a leg perhaps, they say that you can still feel it. Occasionally a pain or an irritation, a sneeze or the perfume of a flower on an early summer evening reminds you that the something you have lost will always be there but only as a fleeting moment/thing.’

—Lubaina Himid

Published on the occasion of Himid’s solo exhibition at Hollybush Gardens, Water Has a Perfect Memory, this special edition of Hollybush Issue includes a response by Bermudian writer and performer, Andra Simons, alongside poetic companion pieces written by Himid and an expanded text by Magda Stawarska-Beavan, whose work is also featured in the exhibition.

Claire Hooper

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.

Charlotte Johannesson

<

A key figure of Swedish counterculture and the creator of the first digital arts laboratory in Nordic countries, Johannesson has worked primarily with two tools: the artisan technology of the loom and digital IT programming technology, exploring and throwing into relief the connections, both conceptual and methodological, that exist between the two. Take Me to Another World renders an account of the meticulous research process around colour and line that the artist executes in her textile and digital practice. It also spotlights the contribution of Danish writer and artist Amalie Smith, who set up a dialogue between Johannesson’s career and her own present-tense narrative. Furthermore, the publication incorporates an interview conducted with the artist in 2012, re-edited and translated on the occasion of Johannesson’s solo exhibition at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.

Johannesson’s monochrome composition, Each is a Universe (2018), forms a relief made up of organic matter including nut shells and cambered plant stems. In a continuation of Johannesson’s interest in symbolism, semantics and image-making, the composition is subsumed within layers of blue paint reminiscent of indexical colour renderings. Yet by preserving the natural and botanical matter in this way, Johannesson privileges an enduring attraction to material life. Johannesson’s sampling of content acknowledges the structural mutuality and dependency between organic minutiae and elaborate ecosystems.

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.

‘For the mixed-media print Who Killed Karen Silkwood? Lesperance utilised some of the same matrices she deployed for Life (2020) but created a pared-down version whose muted grey colours provide the perfect foil for the printed woollen scarf folded across its surface and the pink hand-knit nipple pin fastened on its right side. The nipple, with its puckered fibres and evidently hand-wrought texture, highlights the surprisingly tactile nature of lithography, which historically has involved a bodily encounter with ink, paper and stone. Drawing from the source imagery of a photograph from c. 1983–1985 in which a group of protestors, clad entirely in mourning black, demand accountability for the death of US laboratory technician, union leader, and nuclear safety activist Karen Silkwood, Lesperance has honed in on a detail that might otherwise go overlooked, which is the nipple attached to the central figure’s pants. This somewhat odd accessory distinctly genders the protest and underscores the stakes of Silkwood’s death: it declares that radioactive pollution, industrial contamination, and environmental despoliation are inextricably feminist concerns, and that Silkwood, as a mother, might have been especially concerned about these issues. The extraneous, detached nipple also functions—probably unintentionally—as a moment of almost surrealist or ghoulish humor within a scene otherwise marked by its almost oppressive seriousness.’

This catalogue was produced following 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.

A demi-puckered cake box is the subject matter of this unique painting within a suite of associated studies by Pacheco. The artist frequently derives motifs from found images. He describes his approach to painting as a ‘neutralisation’ of the immediate graphic nature of the subject matter, a reductive act that is achieved by bringing form and ground together, and disrupting the conventional hierarchy of elements that constitute a picture.

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.’

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.’

‘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.

The Palace Prints photographic series draws on material Prodger encountered during the making of SaF05 (2019). The series comprises pages of a book showing 6th Century BC Assyrian stone relief panels depicting lion hunts, in the process of being cut and collaged by the artist. A levelled plane of guiding grids and page markers, the photograph shapes a recalibration of anthropological blueprinting. In palace reliefs of this period the distinction between foreground and background appears flattened and collapsed, counter to linear perspective’s illusionary depth. These spatial systems echo Prodger’s ongoing preoccupation with queering perspective, framing and time in relation to bodies and landscape.⁣

Der Grottenkatalog was published on the occasion of Pulfer’s solo exhibition at Kunstverein Nürnberg in 2013. The exhibition featured an installation comprising a blue fabric tent with sewn-in bed sheets and other textiles, furnished with pastel drawings and ceramic objects as a place of tense fullness. The space was further intensified by additives from products of the luxury food industry, such as flavour enhancers and Japanese dashi, as well as by the sounds of an electric guitar played by the participants themselves. This illustrated catalogue features texts by Simone Neuenschwander and Barbara Casavecchia, examining Pulfer’s exhibition and his associative interest in phenomena, language, sound and process.

Pulfer’s practice investigates various conditions of mutability, incorporating fabric as a malleable, sensorial feature of his installations and performances. The agential latency of textile is used to challenge the limitations of painting. Fabric’s versatility as a substructure for painting allows Pulfer to articulate mnemonic patterns or systems. Das Gluhen der Milchstrasse [The Glowing of the Milky Way] (2013) comprises ink on cotton and ribbon over a self-built wooden frame. The work, originally exhibited in Pulfer’s solo exhibition, The Placidity of Choice (2013) at Hollybush Gardens, was hung in a salon style manner alongside other textile and ceramic works. Das Gluhen der Milchstrasse [The Glowing of the Milky Way] was made during a five-month residency at Kunstverein Nürnberg in 2013. Here, Pulfer utilises painting as a document, diary or experiment. The painting retains gestures of process, serving as a conduit or container for the impermanence of memory, while its title and original installation implies participation within a constellatory system.

The writing in belongs to a series of collages (2020) responding to floor plans of buildings that hold personal resonance for Tallentire, among them a social housing development in Graz and the artist’s home. The plans are partially obscured by drafting tape and rectangular, blank cards—shapes that on a one-to-one scale correspond to passages from books that Tallentire returned to frequently while working from home during periods of self-isolation. While the concealed paragraphs appear merely in guise, otherwise emptied of textual content, their opening words turn titular instead. Placing diagrammatic representations of dwelling spaces alongside the intellectual space formed by the act of reading, the collages consider two correlated spatial systems that suffuse the everyday life.
