Ongoing Becomings 1989-2009 Renée Green

Published by Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts, Lausanne & JRP Ringier, Geneva, 2009, 160 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 23.8 × 28.6 cm, English / French

Price: €40

The first overview of the variety and scope of the research carried out by Renée Green over the past twenty years. Green’s work is located both within the legacy of the most ambitious achievements of Conceptual and post-Minimal art, and within a post-colonial critique of culture. It often takes the form of complex, multi-layered archive-like installations that employ a vast array of sources, and point to a variety of issues, always involving the spectator as active participant through multiple points of access.

Texts by Nora Alter, Diedrich Diedrichsen, Renée Green, Kobena Mercer, Catherine Quéloz, Juliane Rebentisch, Gloria Sutton, Elvan Zabunyan.

Manhattan Suicide Addict Yayoi Kusama

Published by Kousakusha, Tokyo, 1978, 296 pages (b/w ill.), 18.3 × 22 cm, Japanese

Price: €160

First Edition Yayoi Kusama’s first novel, published in Japan in 1978 and never translated into English, is best described as a faux autobiography, describing Kusama’s years in New York in the 50s and 60s. Having left behind a strict family life in post-war Japan, Kusama entered a period of heightened creativity. She was free to make what she wanted, but plagued by fears of intimacy and inadequacy. Her art became a form of therapy, and she went on to create a unique body of work that not only parallels and transcends Pop art, Minimal art and Happenings of the ’60s, but remains influential today.

*Please note this publication is secondhand and has some traces of previous ownership.
