Manfred Pernice

Price: €28

Since the early 1990s, Berlin-based artist Manfred Pernice has created sculptural vessels with scales, materials, and aesthetics derived from the worlds of architecture, shipping cargo, and mass packaging—these works serve as complex, open-ended meditations on the increased segmentation, containment, and, to use Pernice’s term, “canning” of objects and space. His seemingly slapdash sculptures are often juxtaposed with sketches, maquettes, photographs, text and, more recently, video to create systems of meaning.

I’ve Got Something In My Eye
Bik van der Pol
Published by CCS Bard Hessel Museum of Art, 2008, foldout poster (b/w ill.), 25.5 × 19 cm (folded) 51 × 152 cm (unfolded), English
Price: €4

Pamphlet produced on the occasion of Bik van der Pol’s exhibition I’ve Got Something In My Eye at CCS Bard Hessel Museum of Art. For this project, Bik Van der Pol brought together works from the Marieluise Hessel Collection, selections from the collection of the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, their own works, and ephemera from the CCS Bard archive. Following Henri Bergson’s idea that perception is a function of time, the artists allowed themselves to look at how works potentially are surrounded by different sources of knowledge and how they sometimes grow from and are feed back into these connections. Objects, once acquired for specific reasons, are in a constant flux of changing meaning, both in the context and dynamics of a collection (which means continuously in the company other concepts and perceptions), as well as in time.

Painting as a Weapon: Progressive Cologne 1920–1930
Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln & Museum Ludwig, Köln, 2008, 160 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 20 × 24.5 cm, English / German
Price: €47

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition at Museum Ludwig, Köln, March–June 2008. The Cologne Progressives were a group of artists who came together in Cologne, Germany in the 1920s. The artists in this exhibition, Franz Wilhelm Seiwert, Heinrich Hoerle and Gerd Arntz, were its core members. In the aftermath of the horrors of the First World War, like many Germans, these artists desired radical social and political change. Supporters of socialism and workers’ rights, the Progressives sought to unite art and politics. Their aim was to embody change with both the subject matter depicted and in the way they painted their artworks.

Jeremiah Day/Simone Forti
Published by Project Art Centre, Dublin, 2008, 95 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 19 × 24 cm, English
Price: €22

This publication is the record of the improvised collaboration between Jeremiah Day and Simone Forti. Day’s work spans photography, installation and storytelling, and employs intensive research to establish connections between himself and places of public significance; while Forti is an artist with links to the origins of postmodern dance in New York in the early 1960s, and whose practice has more recently involved poetic writing. Day studied improvisation with Forti in Los Angeles, and in 2007 the two collaborated on an exhibition at Project Arts Centre, Dublin. With essays by Fred Dewey, Tessa Giblin and Simone Forti.
