Camino Road Renée Green

Published by Primary Information, New York, 2021, 120 pages (b/w ill.), 10 × 18 cm, English

Price: €16

First published in 1994, Camino Road is artist Renée Green’s debut novel—a short, ruminative work infused with semantic ambiguity and the dreamy poetry of the quotidian. Republished here in a facsimile edition, the book ostensibly traces its protagonist Lyn’s journeys to Mexico and her return to attend art school in 1980s New York, but what emerges is more an intertextual assemblage of the moments between drives, dreams, and consciousness.

Originally created as part of Green’s contribution for the group exhibition Cocido y crudo/The Cooked and the Raw at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, the text is written in both English and Spanish, and accompanied by an appendix of photographs and ephemera tracing Madrid’s La Movida, a Spanish countercultural moment from the 1980s.

Ongoing Becomings 1989-2009 Renée Green

Published by Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts, Lausanne & JRP Ringier, Geneva, 2009, 160 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 23.8 × 28.6 cm, English / French

Price: €40

The first overview of the variety and scope of the research carried out by Renée Green over the past twenty years. Green’s work is located both within the legacy of the most ambitious achievements of Conceptual and post-Minimal art, and within a post-colonial critique of culture. It often takes the form of complex, multi-layered archive-like installations that employ a vast array of sources, and point to a variety of issues, always involving the spectator as active participant through multiple points of access.

Texts by Nora Alter, Diedrich Diedrichsen, Renée Green, Kobena Mercer, Catherine Quéloz, Juliane Rebentisch, Gloria Sutton, Elvan Zabunyan.
