Five O’Clock Shadow (invitation) Ron Nagle

Published by Matthew Marks Gallery, New York, 2015, foldout card (colour ill.), 15.7 × 15.7 cm, English

Price: €15

Produced on the occasion of Ron Nagle: Five O’Clock Shadow at Matthew Marks Gallery, New York, September 11 – October 24, 2015.

Nagle is known for his intimately scaled sculptures made of ceramic elements that are slip-cast, fired, and embellished with epoxy and other synthetic materials that allow him to expand his forms beyond the limits of clay. Some are glazed to a hot-rod finish, others textured like stucco and then airbrushed.

SELECTED WORKS 1970-2015 B. WURTZ

Published by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, 2015, 162 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 22.5 × 28.5 cm, English

Price: €20

Produced on the occasion of B.Wurtz’s survey shows at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and La Casa Encendida, Madrid in 2015.

For more than 40 years, B. Wurtz has collected common, domestic objects – carrier bags, aluminium roasting trays, buttons, shoelaces – and repurposed them into meticulously formal constructions that are balanced, fragile, yet sometimes discordant. His raw material is the stuff we constantly use and constantly overlook; things that connect to life in its most everyday sense.

Wurtz’s sculpture maintains an adherence to classical forms and a play with art history, all the while responding to three fundamental needs outlined early in the artist’s career: sleeping, eating and keeping warm.

Folds in time Lili Dujourie

Published by Walther König, Köln, 2015, 80 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 18 × 27 cm, English

Price: €28

Produced on the occasion of simultaneous exhibition Lili Dujourie: Folds in time at Mu.ZEE, Ostend, and at SMAK, Ghent, 6 June – 4 October 2015.

The work by Flemish artist, Lili Dujourie unfolds out of the gap between painting and sculpture. After making debut with steel and colour objects in the late 1960s, Dujourie’s practice shifted into photography and video in the 1970s.

As well as exploring the blurring between art disciplines, in these new media she also raised gender-and identity-related issues prevalent at that time. The duality of movement and standstill inherent to film has fed the artist’s three-dimensional work from the 1980s to the present.

Wolfgang-Hahn-Preis 2015 Michael Krebber / R.H. Quaytman

Published by Walther König, Köln, 2015, 64 pages (colour ill.), 14.8 × 21 cm, English / German

Price: €8

Established in 1994 in honour of the Cologne art collector Wolfgang Hahn, the Wolfgang Hahn Prize has since been awarded annually to an exceptional, internationally known artist who is nonetheless not yet well known in Germany. In 2015 the prize was awarded for the first time to two artists, R. H. Quaytman and Michael Krebber. This publication honours the prizewinners, both of whom approach the medium of painting from a decidedly conceptual standpoint. With a foreword by Mayen Beckmann, an introduction by Yilmaz Dziewior, a laudation by Daniel Birnbaum, and an afterword by Hanspeter Sauter.

Zeichnungen Marc Nagtzaam

Published by Roma Publications, Amsterdam, 2015, 108 pages (b/w ill.), 20.5 × 26.5 cm, English

Price: €50

Zeichnungen is an artist book with a compilation of drawings – or rather, ‘sketches of drawings’ by Marc Nagtzaam. He combined his material by printing it in different layers on a Riso duplicator at the Charles Nypels Lab in Maastricht. The result is a careful composition of previously unpublished drawings that became a new work in itself. Printed in a limited edition of 200 copies, numbered and signed.
