Folder Annaïk Lou Pitteloud

Published by Edition Fink, Zurich, 2016, 134 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 19 × 24.5 cm, English

Price: €25

With the modular work documentation Folder, Annaïk Lou Pitteloud presents for the most  comprehensive publication on her artistic work to date. It is is preceded by the two sub-publications Mappe and Dossier. As catalogues for the solo exhibitions at the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen and the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne, they contain different compilations of the artist’s works that are related to the respective exhibitions and thus illustrate the basic idea of the present modular documentation of works. Files on all the artist’s works are created according to a strict grid. Separated by type of content, titles, descriptions of works, notes, documentary images and texts are compiled. Reproductions of drawings and reprints of printed matter used in the exhibitions complete the collection.

With texts from Maziar Afrassiabi, Bethan Huws, Nicole Schweizer, Madeleine Amsler, Hans Rudolf Reust, Steve Van den Bosch, Barnaby Drabble, Marie-Eve Knoerle, Federica Martini, Nadia Veronese, Pavel Büchler.

Spring for a Ground / Particle of Inch / Halted Paves / Quarters Magali Reus

Published by Mousse Publishing, Milan, 2016, 80 pages, softcover w. plastic dust jacket, (colour & b/w ill.), 16 × 23 cm, English

Price: €25

In the spring of 2015, Magali Reus opened the first in a series of four exhibitions of new work co-commissioned and presented by SculptureCenter, New York; Hepworth Wakefield, England; Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster, Germany; and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, Italy. The culmination of these collaborative projects is documented in this publication, marking an important chapter in the evolution of Reus’s work.

Renowned for her interest in the relationship between mass-produced articles and the human body in the context of today’s digital society, Magali Reus draws on a vast range of formal influences and references, from the domestic to the industrial, the functional to decorative, creating pieces that evolve as an accumulation and layering of sculptural details. For her, objects like fridges, padlocks, seating, and street curbs are not seen only as facilitators of our everyday actions, but also as physical receptacles for our bodies.
