A limited signed and numbered edition of 75 copies in French and 75 copies in English is also available with a special edition of the vinyl print Squeezable, 2014 bound within each copy.
The limited edition of Issue No. 1 – 2 , 2013 of the Cahiers d’Art revue comes in a plexiglass box created by the artist.
This second issue of the newly published Cahiers d’Art revue focuses predominately on the work of Rosemarie Trockel, who’s 2013 piece, Clock Owner, graces the cover of this edition.
In addition to a feature on Trockel, the publication also introduces the work of Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Le Corbusier, Inge Mahn, Absalon, and Riccardo Paratore.
In the tradition of outstanding contributors to Cahiers d’Art, this second issue of the newly published art journal includes articles by world-renowned writers, curators and art historians including Hans Ulrich Obrist, Brigid Doherty, Joan Simon, Jean Louis Cohen, Michel Houellebecq, and poems by Rolf Dieter Brinkmann.
Cahiers d’Art is pleased to present a special exhibition of Trockel’s work in our gallery spaces in Paris, on view from March 28 -May 24, 2014.
The exhibition features fifteen mixed media works, including the artists latest works made from stretched black yarn. In these black monochrome works, the yarn material is placed like a stroke of the brush on the canvas.
Trockel stands apart among contemporary artists working today through her deep engagement with materials and her unique use of these materials in unconventional ways. In other examples of work in this exhibition, the artist combines ceramic-like materials, such as Acrystal with Plexiglass, together with pieces of crystal. Trockels combination of materials as disparate as casts of meat, digital prints and crystal dislodge the materials from their usual meanings.
