Hannah Rickards
Grey light : Left and right back, high up, two small windows

Edited by Alexandra McIntosh, Nicolaus Schafhausen
Contributions by Melissa Gronlund, Will Holder, Hannah Rickards, Nicolaus Schafhausen

Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows (2014) is a major new work by London-based artist Hannah Rickards commissioned by Fogo Island Arts. Grey light is a two-screen projected video installation with eight channels of sound. Structured rhythmically around the pattern of a foghorn sounding, the piece finds its origins in the notion of the foghorn as an auditory marker for nonvisibility, or imagelessness.

This publication features texts by Melissa Gronlund and Will Holder, a conversation between Rickards and Nicolaus Schafhausen, and striking new photographic imagery drawn from the installation’s physical materials and production process. Like Rickards’s work, the publication aims to bridge the distance between visual experience and its expression in language, whether spoken, written, or gestural.

Silke Otto-Knapp
Questions of Travel


Edited by Rosemary Heather and Nicolaus Schafhausen
Contributions by Elizabeth Bishop, Susan Morgan, Vanessa Joan Müller, Nicolaus Schafhausen

This book is published on occasion of the parallel exhibitions Silke Otto-Knapp presented in two markedly different locations: on Fogo Island, Newfoundland, and at the Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz, Vienna. The contrasting influences of place—between rural and urban, new and old world—is evident in the selection of works presented and compiled in this catalogue. The partnering of these exhibitions clearly brings into focus questions about art and its contexts. The tensions between nature and culture provide an appropriate figure for the artwork: a context imagined and devised for the circumstances of its own activation.

Questions of Travel includes essays by Susan Morgan and Vanessa Joan Müller and a conversation between Otto-Knapp and Nicolaus Schafhausen. Müller reflects on how the tensions Otto-Knapp’s artwork engenders are the substance of its experience, while Morgan approaches the work via three significant influences: the cultural geographer J. B. Jackson; avant-garde dancer Anna Halprin and her husband, the landscape architect Lawrence Halprin; and the poems of Elizabeth Bishop. In the conversation with Schafhausen, Otto-Knapp likens the art exhibition to “a theatre situation that is both distinctly separate from reality and engaged with it at the same time.” As the activating element of an exhibition, the viewer could also be said to embody the reality of a work’s engagement. Otto-Knapp took the title for this project, “Questions of Travel,” from Bishop’s poem of the same name, which has been reprinted for this catalogue.

Published on the occasion of Otto-Knapp’s exhibitions “Questions of Travel (Wien),” Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz, March 12–May 25, 2014, and “Questions of Travel (Fogo Island),” Fogo Island Gallery, April 16–August 31, 2014.

Kate Newby
Let The Other Thing In

Contributions by Paul Dean, Jennifer Kabat, Mami Kataoka, Kate Newby, Daniel Wong
Edited by Rosemary Heather, Nicolaus Schafhausen

In Kate Newby’s site-responsive installations, handcrafted and found objects are often combined with words or phrases to form artworks that engage with the particularities of place. The New Zealand artist’s intimate engagement with materials and nonhierarchical involvement with space exhibit a sophisticated understanding of the role that architecture plays in the shaping of thought and perception, our sense of self in the body and in community. Copublished with Fogo Island Arts, this catalogue accompanies Newby’s exhibition at the Fogo Island Gallery on Fogo Island, off the northeastern coast of Newfoundland in Canada. The publication features an interview with Newby by Mami Kataoka, an essay by Jennifer Kabat, and a conversation between Newby, geologist Paul Dean, and strategist Daniel Wong, as well as the artist’s “Skim Stone Pictures,” a photo series of people skimming her ceramic stones into various bodies of water.
