Five O’Clock Shadow (invitation) Ron Nagle

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.

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.
