Curtis Cuffie
Published by Blank Forms New York, 2023, 256 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 20 × 27.3 cm, English
Price: €38

Born in Hartsville, South Carolina, Curtis Cuffie moved to New York as a teenager, first residing with his brothers in Brooklyn. In his adult life, Cuffie spent time unhoused in the streets of Manhattan where he found both inspiration and materials for his work as an artist. Cuffie’s sculptures interpret material street culture in the 1990s and early 2000s, using discarded and found objects assembled and transformed into collaged figures that speak to both the abject reality of urban surplus as well as the magical alchemy of artistic creation. Built by Cuffie outdoors, primarily on the sidewalks around Astor Place and along the Bowery, his sculptures were subject to the whims of weather, police interference, and the sanitation department, as well as Cuffie’s own continued interventions into his work. Edited by Scott Portnoy and Robert Snowden with Ciarán Finlayson and designed by Julie Peeters.

Vacant Possession
John Knight
Published by Cabinet Gallery, London, 2018, 32 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 20 × 22.7 cm, English
Price: €22

Robert Snowden, the author of Vacant Possession, takes as his starting point the occasion of the closing show of the same name by the artist John Knight at Cabinet Gallery, Old Street in 2016. The text becomes an enquiry into the unrealised projects in the archive of the artist, and a reflection on the nature of the unmade, of memory and material evidence.

Other Mechanisms
Published by Revolver Publishing, Berlin, 2018, 144 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 22 × 21 cm, English
Price: €36

In his catalogue essay, curator Anthony Huberman explains that the works in this exhibition ‘reflect on what it could mean to contest the regime of the machine’. That is, they question the worship of usefulness in modern scientific civilisation, which is refused or even ridiculed by each piece on show. It’s a strong concept, and potentially extends to how the works are placed in the labyrinthine space of the Secession. If the point is to produce friction, then the disorganisation of Other Mechanisms—the inability of its parts to add up to a coherent whole—is a paradoxical form of success.
