The work of K.R.M. Mooney inhabits an intermediary position between autonomous, abstract sculpture and context-specific projects. With carefully placed objects and spatial interventions they dissolve clear boundaries between interior and exterior, initiating a more comprehensive perception of objects, bodies and space that is always co-produced with the relational, environmental and embodied. K.R.M. Mooney, Carrier is published on occasion of the artists’ solo exhibition at Kunstverein Braunschweig’s Remise. It includes an introduction by Christina Lehnert, an interview between K.r.m. Mooney and McIntyre Parker, a statement by Nele Kaczmarek and a poem by Susanne M. Winterling.

GEORGIA SAGRI GEORGIA SAGRI and I GEORGIA SAGRI

Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2018, 128 pages (colour & b/w ill.), wire binding, 21.5 × 27 cm, English

Price: €24

The catalogue GEORGIA SAGRI GEORGIA SAGRI and I is published on the occasion of the eponymous solo exhibitions GEORGIA SAGRI GEORGIA SAGRI at Kunstverein Braunschweig, December 2017–February 2018, and GEORGIA SAGRI and I at Portikus, Frankfurt am Main, April–June 2018. As her first comprehensive publication, this catalogue surveys the multi-facetted oeuvre of the Greek artist Georgia Sagri. As the title of this book suggests, the staged objects Sagri produces are doubled modules, where each I or self can be “cross-eyed.” This effect, often produced theatrically, reorders the collective gaze to be subverted through a “catastrophe of emotions.” Across performance, video work, and sculpture, Sagri navigates the murky relationships between the artist’s body and her body of work, subjectivity and persona, original and reproduction with equal parts humor and severity.

Collected in this catalogue is both current documentation of Sagri’s work and rich archival material since 1999; together they are juxtaposed against essays by Sotirios Bahtsetzis, Daniel Horn, Ruba Katrib, Christina Lehnert, Diego Singh and Stephen Squibb, an interview conducted with Silvia Federici, and a conversation between the artist, Bettina Funcke, and John Kelsey.
