Success in Failure Wolfgang Stoerchle

Published by Daisy editions, Lisbon/Paris & Christophe Daviet-Théry, Paris, 2021, 408 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 16 × 24 cm, English

Price: €35

Wolfgang Stoerchle is a particularly notable artistic figure of the early seventies who left a certain but little advertised mark on a generation of Californian artists, especially through videotapes and performances involving his body as raw material. His short but eventful life is surrounded by rumours, and his abrupt death in 1976 may have emphasised the myth around him even more. His entire body of work was produced in eleven years, between 1965 and 1976. Forty-five years after he passed away, his name still drifts across the West Coast art world, awaiting wider recognition. This is the first monograph on Stoerchle’s work and includes interviews with Daniel Lentz, Paul McCarthy, Matt Mullican, David Salle, Helene Winer, and an unpublished review by James Welling, alongside ephemera and documentation of Stoerchle’s video works and performances, as well as rarely seen sculptures, installations, and paintings.

Edited by Alice Dusapin, with Justin Jaeckle and designed by Coline Sunier & Charles Mazé.

One Thing I Know Pati Hill

Published by Daisy editions, Lisbon/Paris, 2022, 108 pages (b/w ill.), 12 × 18 cm, English

Price: €10

One Thing I Know is Pati Hill’s third novel, first published in 1962, when she was forty-one and had just given birth to her first and only child. It is the last novel she wrote before claiming to “quit writing in favor of housekeeping”.

Untrained as an artist, she began to use the photocopier as an artistic tool in the early 1970s and continued to do so until her death, leaving behind an extensive oeuvre that explores the relationship between image and text. In addition to this comprehensive body of xerographic work, she published four novels, a memoir, several short stories, artist’s books, and poetry.

Afterword by Baptiste Pinteaux.
