Six Years: The Dematerialization of the Art Object from 1966 to 1972 Lucy R. Lippard

Published by University of California Press, Berkeley, 1997, 296 pages (b/w ill.), 17.8 × 21.9 cm, English

Price: €31

In Six Years Lucy R. Lippard documents the chaotic network of ideas that has been labeled conceptual art. The book is arranged as an annotated chronology into which is woven a rich collection of original documents—including texts by and taped discussions among and with the artists involved and by Lippard, who has also provided a new preface for this edition. The result is a book with the character of a lively contemporary forum that offers an invaluable record of the thinking of the artists—a historical survey and essential reference book for the period.

Phillip Lai

Published by The Showroom, London, 1997, 24 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 21 cm, English

Price: €18 (Out of stock)

Produced on the occasion of Phillip Lai’s exhibtion at The Showroom, London, 26th February–30th March, 1997. With an essay by Francis McKee and an interview by Karina Daskalov.

Phillip Lai’s work at The Showroom involved the construction of objects and images which addressed ‘fluid’ states; the transformation via a soy-sauce fermentation unit, of solids to liquid and the absurd fusion, through biro drawn directly onto the gallery wall, of automatic drawing and the ‘letting’, or exhumation, of a consciousness.

More information on the exhibition can be found here.
