Breath Holding Spell
Nairy Baghramian
Published by Revolver Publishing, Berlin, 2021, 16 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 30.4 × 30.4 cm, English
Price: €30

On the levels of both form and content, Breath Holding Spell unmistakably harks back to Bruce Nauman’s 1970 artist’s book LA AIR, whose eight monochrome pages present photographs of the atmosphere, illustrating the widely varying hues of the air over L.A.

It inspired this artist’s book by Nairy Baghramian, which features variations on a single photographic motif: no more than a cropped detail of a tightly packed standing crowd of people is visible in Tight Sluice. Monochrome pages that reprise the colors of their attire appear in rhythmical alternation with the pictures.

The artist has autographed the books on the back cover, again quoting Nauman, though his signature was a printed facsimile.

11 Los Angeles Artists
Published by Hayward Gallery, London, 1971, 64 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 29.5 cm, English
Price: €14

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition 11 Los Angeles Artists, 30 September–7 November, 1971 at the Hayward Gallery, London. The exhibition featured the work of a ‘small diverse group of artists’, many of them only recently out of art school. Some of these younger artists, including John Altoon, Larry Bell, Robert Irwin, John McLaughlin, Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha, Ken Price and William Wegman, were little known in the US outside a small number of alternative galleries.
