Paulina Olowska by Paulina Ołowska( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Internet de JRP-Ringier : "Paulina Olowska's work demonstrates an interest on Communist Poland's fascination with Western consumerism and celebrates the spirit and stylish improvisations of the "Applied Fantastic"--A term coined by Polish writer Leopold Tyrmand in 1954, to describe the vernacular re-creations of Western styles. In her paintings, collages, and knitted works, Olowska incorporates text and graphics from found illustrations or images that have a decidedly "behind the Iron Curtain" look, while paying tribute to American Pattern and Decoration art of the 1970s and its use of non-traditional contemporary art mediums such as tiles and textiles. This publication is the first monograph to offer an overview of her work. It includes an interview with Adam Szymczyk and an essay by Jan Verwoert. Olowska, who lives and works in the Polish countryside, has had recent one-person and project exhibitions at MoMA, New York (2011), Tramway, Glasgow (2010); Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich (2009); DAAD Galerie, Berlin (2008); and Portikus, Frankfurt (2007). Published in collaboration with Kunsthalle Basel."
Mai-thu Perret by Mai-Thu Perret( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mai-Thu Perret (*1976 in Geneva, where she lives and works) studied at Cambridge University and the Whitney Independent Study Program, New York. The first body of works she developed is entitled "The Crystal Frontier" (1999-): a series that comprises text and objects, which she describes as either the hypothetical production of a group of women living in autarchy in the desert of New Mexico, or the materialization of the principles that shape their everyday life. Investigating our relationships to common objects found in contemporary art, design spaces, and everyday shops, the artist engages with the consequences and changing realities of utopian thinking as it becomes incorporated into capitalism's mainstream. The book includes most of her projects so far, introduced by short captions she has written, as well as newly commissioned essays by Elisabeth Lebovici and Diedrich Diederichsen. In 2010-2011 Mai-Thu Perret had solo exhibitions at UMMA in Ann Arbor, the Aargauer Kunsthaus in Aarau, the Mamco in Geneva, the Haus Konstruktiv in Zurich, and the Magasin in Grenoble.

Jim Shaw : my mirage by Jim Shaw( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My mirage" (1986-1991) is the first major body of work by Jim Shaw (born 1952), an artist from Los Angeles who started exhibiting in the late 1970s. Composed of nearly 170 pieces - each one drawn, silk-screened, photographed, sculpted, filmed or painted in a different style - "My Mirage" recounts the wandering of Billy, a white, middle-class American sucked into the whirlwind of the sixties and seventies. His is a story of unceasing failure. After an anxious childhood, Billy later withdraws from the guilt-wracked spasms of adolescence in order to lose himself in a psychedelic utopia, which soon becomes a nightmare. In the depth of a psychotic hallucinations, he follows a woman who he worships into a pagan sect, before finally returning to the religion of his youth, "reborn" as a fundamentalist Christian. Each piece appropriates an image taken from an extremely broad iconographic field ranging from children's books to contemporary art and including comics, religious literature, and psychedelic posters
