Crystal Palace
Mathias Poledna
Published by Regents of the University of California, 2007, 58 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 23.5 × 27.4 cm, English
Price: €42

Mathias Poledna’s work Crystal Palace is a 35mm film installation comprised of a small number of long, static shots of the montane rainforest landscape of the Southern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea. Only subtle changes in light and movement in foliage provide visual cues to the passing of time. The film is accompanied by a dense and highly edited soundtrack created from on-location and archival field recordings that oscillate between distinct insect and bird sounds, and drone-like noise.

Poledna’s title, Crystal Palace, evokes the monumental glass-and-steel structure of that name constructed for the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London, an important precursor of modern architecture and industrialized construction that was built to present the newest products of the capitalist economy, accompanied by exotic displays, fauna and flora.

The Twin Plays: Port-au-Prince & Adams County Illinois
Jackson Mac Low
Published by Primary Information, New York, 2007, 14 pages, 13.5 × 21.5 cm, English
Price: €18

2007 reprint of a 1966 Great Bear Pamphlet.

Two dramas that explore improvisation and chance by the innovative poet Jackson Mac Low. In each, Mac Low gives the hypothetical performer general instructions arrived at through chance operations involving various linguistic structures. In Port-au-Prince, the speeches consist of “pseudo-sentences” that appear as though they make sense but in fact do not. Adams County Illinois uses the same structure but consists of folk-sayings quoted from the 1935 Folk-Lore from Adams County Illinois by Harry Middleton Hyatt.
