Wade Guyton
Das New Yorker Atelier


In the last two years, Wade Guyton has created a compelling new series of artworks, which this publication presents in all its breadth and complexity.

In the series, he opens his art to new modes of visual depiction as well as the world around him by adopting the practices of taking snapshots and screen captures common to our increasingly digital experience.

In so doing, he follows the rapid extension and ramification of the digital code into all areas of life, through recording the daily reading of the newspaper, the view from his window, the act of reflecting on his paintings and sculptures, as well as a view into their magnified digital matrix.

English and German text.

Jochen Lempert
Drift

 

Jochen Lempert works with the expertise of a trained biologist, the eye of a photographer and the technique of a scientist.

His photography examines the friction between nature and culture, specifically the relationship between humans and animals: how mankind interprets animals anthropomorphically or uses them industrially, and how animals conquer new niches within urban spaces, unnoticed by their human neighbours.

In his earlier works he collected, archived and arranged the motifs in large groups, stimulating comparative viewing and throwing open multiple associative references.

Lempert’s latest groups of work focus more on formations, patterns, structures, conveying the aleatory potency of flocks of birds, water structures and cloud formations.

Published to accompany the exhibition at Museum Ludwig, Cologne in 2010.

Jochen Lempert
Composition



Over the past two decades, Jochen Lempert has drawn from his personal archive of hundreds of images to create photographic installations that immerse the viewer in a field of poetic visual associations.
Lempert’s images of the natural world – ocean waves, plants, birds, insects, reptiles, seashells, and taxidermied specimens from natural history museums – are made through a variety of experimental and traditional processes that, to a certain extent, mimic the inherent order and randomness of the natural world itself.
While some of his photographs are taken with a 35mm camera from scientific research vessels in the North Sea or in the urban environment of his hometown of Hamburg, Germany, many are made through camera-less processes. He creates photograms by lying natural specimens directly on photographic paper.
Foliograms, such as his Transmission series (2009), are made by placing leaves directly into the darkroom enlarger and allowing light to pass through them onto the photo paper. Lempert also prints his photographs using non-traditional techniques. Hand-printed on heavy photographic paper, they are not pressed and presented unframed – this enhances the viewer’s sense of the paper as an object with the tactile quality of a charcoal drawing.

Published retrospectively after Lempert’s major survey exhibition at Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis, 3 February – 31 March 2012.

Seth Price
Social Synthetic

This catalogue is the first comprehensive publication on Price’s varied oeuvre. It offers an unflinching portrait of contemporary, mediated Western life. The exhibition at Stedelijk Museum is the first survey of the American artist’s work.

A key theme in Price’s work is the self under technological pressure. This is often expressed in terms of the ‘skins’ of surface, packaging, and wrapping: a photographic study of a person’s skin obtained through the technologies Google employs for mapping; a vacuum-formed plastic relief presenting a body part stranded in plastic; a large wall sculpture depicting the negative space between two people engaged in intimate action, greatly enlarged from a tiny internet jpeg.

‘Seth Price is a key figure in addressing technology and artistic authorship. His work traces an important art historical shift from the concept of collage, where chance played a major role and the image was constructed of multiple layers, to the concept of a unified image, which envelops us in an endless, undifferentiated, digital stream.’ – Beatrix Ruf, Director of Stedelijk Museum

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Seth Price: Social Synthetic, at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (15 April – 3 September 2017), and at Museum Brandhorst, Munich (12 October 2017 – 18 March 2018).

Texts by: Cory Arcangel, Ed Halter, Achim Hochdörfer, Branden W Joseph, John Kelsey, Michelle Kuo, Rachel Kushner, Laura Owens, Ariana Reines, Beatrix Ruf.
