Philadelphia Wireman



The only monograph ever produced on the work of Philadelphia Wireman, published by Fleisher/Ollman in Philadelphia in 2011.

In the late 1970s a stockpile of over a thousand distinctive wire sculptures were found in cardboard boxes on the street in a slowly-gentrifying neighborhood in South Philadelphia. The works consist of different gauges of wire wrapped around everyday found objects and materials such as food packaging, umbrella parts, tape, batteries, pens, nuts and bolts, nails, foil, coins, toys, watches, eyeglasses, tools, and jewelry. The maker, who remains unidentified, possessed an astonishing ability to isolate and communicate the concepts of power and energy through his selection and transformation of these ordinary materials. The pieces are often compared to African fetish objects and other ritualized, vernacular traditions, but resonate equally with historical and contemporary art practices. The collection has come to be regarded as an important discovery in the field of self-taught art.

This fully illustrated catalogue includes a foreword by John Ollman, an essay by Brendan Greaves, and was designed by Purtill Family Business with cover typography by artist and designer Paul Elliman.

Paul Elliman
Untitled (September Magazine)

Artist’s book by Paul Elliman. In a glossy volume approaching 600 pages, Elliman has collected images from a variety of sources – fashion magazines, glamour photography and pornography – cropping and arranging the clippings in a manner that especially emphasises the presence of hands, along with the many gestures of which they are capable. Also prevalent in the spectrum of clothed, semi-nude and nude human forms are limbs, feet, torsos and erogenous zones. Without any text or explanation, the series takes on a mesmerising aspect wherein the action of flipping through the pages becomes a kind of meditative contemplation of the fragmented human body.

Design: Julie Peters.
