Vincent Fecteau
You Have Did the Right Thing When You Put That Skylight In



Beautiful hardcover cloth-bound catalogue published on the occasion of Vincent Fecteau’s large survey solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel in 2015 (curated by Elena Filipovic). In addition to numerous full-colour reproductions of the exhibited works the book (including installation views and numerous photographs of individual works from different angles, including details) contains a new essay by Bruce Hainley. Also includes an exhibition work list, biography and bibliography.

Co-published byKunsthalle Basel, Matthew Marks (New York), Galerie Daniel Buchholz (Cologne) and greengrassi (London).

Edition of 1000.

Highly recommended.

Vincent Fecteau (b. 1969) has, over the last two decades, forged a singular aesthetic that mixes homespun materials (popsicle sticks, champagne corks, string, and the like), meticulous craft work, and a curious formal grammar. By turns wonky, erotic, extraterrestrial, or baroque—and sometimes all of these at once—his sculptures are built from small, slow accumulations in which layering, texture, and the work of the hand are all visible. You Have Did the Right Thing When You Put That Skylight In, the San Francisco–based artist’s largest exhibition to date and his first solo show in Switzerland, is a selection of sculptures spanning from 2000 to the present plus the premiere of a large new body of work. Comprised of images culled from magazines and other ready-made elements (shoeboxes, jewelry boxes, wicker baskets, and other lo-fi containers, all painted the matte-est of blacks), these wall sculptures manifest both a return to his origins (collage) and a significant new direction.

Vincent Fecteau

Edited by  Krist Gruijthuijsen

“In 2005 I was invited to participate in a project in Los Angeles called ‘The Backroom’ initiated by Magali Arriola, Kate Fowle, and Renaud Proch, in which artists were asked to contribute materials related to their research, sources, and interests. Although at that time I was not using collage materials in my sculptures, I had amassed a large collection of magazine pages (mainly from architecture and interior design magazines) that I often flipped through for inspiration. I decided to edit the pages, spending several months arranging and rearranging them as relationships both formal and narrative were revealed. This book is a reproduction of the resulting selection, originally presented in ‘The Backroom’ in a simple black binder.”
—Vincent Fecteau, San Francisco, 2015

American artist Vincent Fecteau has, over the last two decades, forged a singular aesthetic that mixes homespun materials (Popsicle sticks, champagne corks, string, and the like), meticulous craftwork, and a curious formal grammar. By turns wonky, erotic, extraterrestrial, or baroque—and sometimes all of these at once—his sculptures are built from small, slow accumulations in which layering, texture, and the work of the hand are all visible. His exhibition “You Have Did the Right Thing When You Put That Skylight In” is on display at the Kunsthalle Basel from June 18–August 23, 2015.
