recent works 2023
Tishan Hsu
Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2023, 64 pp. (colour & b/w ill.), 17 × 24 cm, English
Price: €18

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Tishan Hsu: recent work 2023 at Secession, Vienna, 1 December, 2023 – 11 February, 2024.

Hsu’s preoccupation with the body in a world of technology dates back to the 1980s. How bodies and consciousness change in the interaction with digital technology is a question he has insistently probed. Hsu’s insights into the interpenetration of human and technology have proven visionary; science fiction anticipated its culmination in the hybrid existence of the cyborg, but it left few traces in the art of the 1980s.

You can see Tishan Hsu in conversation about the exhibition with Patrizia Dander here.

Vivian Suter
Published by Secession, Vienna & GAMeC, Bergamo, 2023, 168 pages, with leaf insert (colour & b/w ill.), 17 × 24 cm, English / German
Price: €24

Between December 2022 and March 2023, Vivian Suter shared hundreds of photos, all taken with her mobile phone, with the designer and editor of this book. A selection of these snapshots, condensed, juxtaposed, complementing each other, now forms a kind of photographic journal. It offers insights into Suter’s work on her art and everyday life, which are inextricably interwoven: Photos of canvases and paint pots in the thicket of her jungle-like garden and in the studio, of her dogs, of the house with its characteristic aquamarine green and purplish-red walls, of family pictures, of the play of light and shadow in nature and architecture. Among the many photos, one occasionally finds images of watercolours on (coloured) paper, which the artist made especially for the book. Designed by Sabo day.
