Buchbeschreibung P.B.A. - P.S.K., Bruxelles - Brussel, 2000. Hard Cover. Exhibition Catalogue. Text: English. 86 p.; ill.; 21 x 25 cm; 520g. Graphic design by Filiep Tacq. - " The subject of At Home & in the World is black and white. Those colors -or rather those places, at opposite ends of the spectrum, where color vanishes- have long associations in the history of modernism, which is notorious for its interest in purifying the artist’s palette, whether by confining it to the primaries or by almost erasing it altogether. In college I studied with Ad Reinhardt, whose near-mystical attempts to produce modernism’s last, ultimate paintings -purely retinal works, with no content other than visual experience- won him the nickname "the black monk." On the other hand, an important context of modern art, the gallery, is white- a space designed to obliterate any sense of history and of the body, to suggest a timeless aesthetic divorced from life’s dirty realities. The white wall, the blank canvas, the empty white page- all of these haunt modern thought. . the embroideries in At Home & in the World, in dealing with black and white, deal with all the things that an artist like Reinhardt, in constantly reducing his palette, thought he was getting rid of: politics, race, sexuality, culture, and society. The exhibition At Home & in the World at the Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels, in 2000, included When This You See . . . , a video based on movie clips of women sewing, weaving, or knitting, compiled from a wide range of films dating from the 1920s to the 1990s. Here, too, images are combined with text, in this case one-word interventions that reveal and comment upon the heroine’s inner motivation: "Revenge" (Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman), "Obsession" (Melanie Lynskey and Kate Winslett in Heavenly Creatures), "Fabrication" (Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s), and "Revolution" (Carole Bouqet in That Obscure Object of Desire). " As new. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 004126
