Published by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, 2009, 80 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 26 cm, English
Price: €25

Paul Sietsema is an artist deeply engaged in the act of looking. For his third and newest project, Figure 3 (2008), Sietsema takes as inspiration the ethnographic objects that he has collected from various locations, including Africa, Indo-Asia, and the South Pacific region of Oceania. Situating Figure 3 in the broader context of Sietsema’s work of the past ten years, this far-ranging volume explores the artist’s unique approach to looking as well as the relationships among his drawings, object-making, and film. With an essay by Cornelia Butler and interview by Bruce Hainley.
