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.

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.

The Smell of Ink and Soil
The Story of [Edition] Hansjörg Mayer

This is a long-awaited account of the work of the great publisher and designer Hansjörg Mayer in the fields of concrete poetry, typography, artist’s publications and ethnographic books over six decades. It includes the first bibliography of his works.

Identified as a print prodigy by Max Bense in the late 1950s, Mayers unique expertise and virtuosity with print technologies of the time allowed for the casting of works in various experimental formats which stretched, fragmented and expanded the concept of the poem.

He combined an interest in chance and randomness with a mathematically precise attention to use of graphic space, which makes his works now seem anticipatory of networked systems whilst holding a more modernist purity of form. His works made seminal explorations into the possibilities of concrete and computational convergence.

Mayer had a retrospective exhibition at Haags Gemeentemuseum in 1968 at the young age of 25. After this he concentrated on making experimental publications with artists.

Through his edition hansjörg mayer he issued publications of Dieter Roth, Richard Hamilton, Tom Phillips, André Thomkins and Emmett Williams.

From the late 1970s he also began to research, collect and publish an extraordinary series of books about vanishing cultures.
