James Richards
Requests and Antisongs


Edited by Mason Leaver-Yap, James Richards
Contributions by Ed Atkins, Dan Fox, Fatima Hellberg, Chris McCormack, Steve Reinke

Requests and Antisongs is an artist’s book to accompany a sequence of exhibitions by James Richards held at Bergen Kunsthall, Norway; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; and the Kestner Gesellschaft, Hanover. The book contains a series of visual essays by the artist, documentation of recent exhibitions, as well as essays by Dan Fox, Ed Atkins, Steve Reinke, Chris McCormack, and Fatima Hellberg.

In Richards’s work, images and sounds are merged into highly affective videos that combine footage from a wide range of sources to form elegant compositions. His recent projects separate these elements out again, allowing space for multichannel audio installations that combine sound in a way that is physical and spatial. The video works convene materials according to the silent rhythms and movements of the footage they contain—footage from newscasts, medical documentaries, and French erotica as well as the institutions’ own archives of video documentation—composing a lyrical meditation on the body as a site for the flow of material and sensation.

This book, the most significant publication on Richards’s work to date, is an extension of the shows, transposing the strategies of his exhibition making into the rhythm of printed matter. The artist has developed a new series of collages specially for the book, comprising promiscuous relations and dissonant juxtapositions between photographic documentation of the works in the exhibitions, the artist’s personal photographs, and found images.

Fredrik Værslev
All Around Amateur


Edited by Martin Clark, Anne Pontégnie, Steinar Sekkingstad
Texts by Ina Blom, Martin Clark, Anne Pontégnie, Steinar Sekkingstad

Fredrik Værslev’s work navigates between different painterly traditions, and demonstrates the possibilities and relevance of the medium today. He treats his paintings as objects, often created through more or less laborious, serial, or deterministic processes where time itself, as well as various external factors, become active cocreators in the making of the work. In several series, he has left his paintings outdoors for long periods of time, allowing the weather and external wear to complete the work. Other works employ apparently clichéd techniques, motifs, or art-historical quotations (i.e., dripping and splattering). More recently, Værslev has been working with a tool used for marking painted lines on roads and sports fields.

Published in conjunction with Fredrik Værselv’s exhibition “All Around Amateur” at the Bergen Kunsthall and Le Consortium, Dijon, this publication, comes in two different versions, with each book comprising 320 one-to-one digital images scanned from eight of Værslev’s new “sunset” paintings. Each canvas produces a total of eighty scanned images, which are reproduced in the book sequentially, left to right, top to bottom. The full-bleed scans in each “volume,” together, reproduce an entire wall of paintings from the exhibition. The paintings, based on photographs of sunsets taken by Værslev on his iPhone from airplane windows, evoke the work of art-historical figures such as J. M. W. Turner, Mark Rothko, and Edvard Munch.

The catalogue also includes newly commissioned texts by Ina Blom, Martin Clark, and Steinar Sekkingstad as well as an interview with artist Anne Pontégnie.
