Brian Eno was the first institutional solo exhibition by Scottish artist Lucy McKenzie at the Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, February 23 – April 27, 2003.

The installation of trompe l’oeil murals and screen-printed posters as well as drawings, sound and light took the symbolic figure Brian Eno as its starting point. As an extraordinary musician, educator, visual artist and “communications advisor” to British New Labor, Eno is emblematic of common debates about avant-garde and quality. Lucy McKenzie used this discourse as a background for her own interpretations of such questions, especially questions that concern functionalism.

Fiona Connor
Published by lo, London, 2023, 100 pp. stapled book in cardboard folder (b/w ill.), 27.5 × 20.8 cm, English
Price: €200

This publication was developed over a year and catalogues the photographs Fiona Connor takes as tools for making sculptures while also considering how she prints and uses these images in her studio. Over five thousand images have been edited and collated into stapled book blocks arranged chronologically. The photographs record sites, surfaces, and objects to enable a sculptural language that utilises processes of mimicry and reproduction. When seen together, they operate like a stream of consciousness recorded through the push of a fingertip on a phone screen.

Henrik Olesen
Published by Ublication, London, 2023, 16 pages in cardboard folder (colour & b/w ill.), 24.3 × 28.5 cm, English
Price: €118

A bestiary of agencies, kinds of relatings, and scores of time.

Henrik Olesen’s R.R. originates in his reading of Donna Haraway’s The Companion Species Manifesto. Through her, Olesen reimagines Robert Rauschenberg’s ‘Monogram’ using found images of interspecies attachments overlaid with painterly gestures that are both childish and fevered.

Printed on a lightweight, soft, ink-absorbing paper stock, these images are then partially overlaid with hand collaged tip-ins. In an edition of 65. Numbered and signed.
