A text articulating the artist’s systematic pictorial practice, executed on Golden Section wood panels, is printed on the book’s unfolding dust jacket.

The Art of Connecting Atsuko Tanaka

Published by Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, 2011, 225 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 23 × 29 cm, English

Price: €35 (Out of stock)

Produced on the occasion of The Art of Connecting: Atsuko Tanaka at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, which illustrated an unprecedented balance between all aspects of Tanaka’s practice, ranging from her earliest gestures, including documentation of Gutai performances in the 1950s, to paintings made shortly before her death in 2005.

Through variety it conveys a remarkable consistency of vision, connecting art and everyday life as we know it. It articulates an artistic proposition that makes Tanaka one of the most important figures of the Japanese post-war avant-garde.

Mercury Ariana Reines

Published by Fence Books, New York, 2011, 128 pages, 16.5 × 22 cm, English

Price: €17 (Temporarily out of stock)

Composed in the direct, accessible, consciousness-piercing style of which readers of Ariana Reines’ first two books are wildly enamoured, Mercury comprises a group of long poems. These interlocking works speak to the substance and essence of what is said, transmitted, transacted, “communicated” between persons. Reines proposes that substance and essence are opposites, and explores this in contexts including commercial cinema, the nation-state, currency, alchemy, and internet porn.
