NOW is a series of bi-annual sales that Phillips de Pury & Company initiated in London last October. With the first NOW sale in New York we gave our specialists the same brief as in London, i.e. to include only works done between 2001 and 2010. Few artists are more contemporary, more NOW, than the great Louise Bourgeois. Her current work is stronger than anything she has done in her long career. It is vibrant, youthful, relevant, NOW but ultimately timeless. We therefore thought that this theme sale catalog was a highly appropriate place to include a kind of editorial homage. In Aspen in order to conduct a charity sale to benefit the Aspen Museum of Art on December 28, I took advantage of spending a few days with my young and fabulous new wife in that extraordinary place. For a European used to skiing in Alpine resorts, it was a true revelation to ski for the first time in America in dream conditions. On December 31, we were invited by John and Amy Phelan for an impromptu Silvester party. There could not have been a better way to end the old year and to start the new one than in the absolutely amazing house they have there, surrounded by their extraordinary collection that is fun, sexy, irreverent, lively and totally great – exactly like their owners. Am therefore particularly happy that we could include a story on Amy – her attitude is truly inspiring and, together with John, they represent one of the reasons why being active in the art world never ceases to be the ultimate privilege. So much for NOW!

assortment of candies – tangy apple sour sweets, green liquorices, m&ms and margarita chips. their arrangement in black bowls of various heights and their lurid green color catches my eye. I ask Amy what their first major purchase was. ‘It was eight years ago,’ she says, pointing to a spectacular Dubuffet across the living room. ‘We started by collecting modern – the Dubuffet and a Picasso pencil drawing in the hallway’ she says. ‘the de Kooning came shortly after.’ she likes the Dubuffet ‘for its sweet spirit, it is as if there is a man behind the mask’, and the de Kooning seated woman for the fact that ‘although it is a little more abstract, she is clearly a woman. she is still soft and beautiful, and the fact that it is painted on newspaper gives it a cutting edge.’ It was the de Kooning, she admits, that ‘gave them the confidence to move from modern into the contemporary’. the first contemporary works they bought, reflect the personalities of these two collectors. thomas ruff photographs, with their golden coloration and blurry focus, look at first glance a bit old-fashioned and tie them into the spirit of modernist work. It is the subject matter of these works from ruff's pornography series that ties them firmly into the contemporary. I ask about the marilyn minter photographs and she tells me that she first came across her work in Aspen, Colorado, where she and her husband have recently renovated a house for themselves and makenzie moon, their 14-yearold daughter. their Aspen home also houses the majority of their collection of contemporary art. they were in the Baldwin Gallery, the gallery of the late harley Baldwin, and he suggested that John commission a work of Amy by marilyn, an idea at which she was initially embarrassed. she accepted the challenge and when she and John arrived at marilyn’s downtown studio not knowing what to expect. the initial sitting took some four hours and was made more fun by copious amounts of wine being drunk by both her and John and the artist. I ask if minter made her up and she says, ‘no. I was already wearing make up but she puts Vaseline on your face and then sprays you with water from a plant mister so the water beads up.’ the images from the sitting were so successful that marilyn has used them as the basis for a whole series of paintings, she says adding that, ‘the main one is in their house in Aspen’. ‘marilyn was my first artist friend’, she says, ‘I get on really well with her.’ Amy acknowledges that ‘success has come late to [minter] and that she had a hard row to hoe – her mother was a drug addict. she was always on the outside of the art world, painting her pornographic works’. she says

I fIrst meet Amy PhelAn on facebook after she accepted my friend request. ed Baynard, an artist friend, had suggested I befriend her as he liked what she was posting on her facebook page and the artists, collectors and curators listed among her friends. As one who has little interest in the website, I agreed rather begrudgingly. her postings began to appear regularly in my news feed and, unlike many of my other invitations to this opening or that event, her postings, and in particular the photographs of her everyday life and travels, displayed an endearing warmth and humor. It was in this spirit that I placed the request to interview her through facebook, the result of which led me to her spectacular living room on new york's Upper east side. We settle comfortably on squishy sofas and start to chat, first about her childhood in Dallas, texas, with her ‘hard-working middle-class parents and a beloved brother.’ the family is interested in sports, ‘it was a texan sports family,’ and it seemed a natural progression for her to become a cheerleader with the Dallas Cowboys, which she was between 1991 and 1994. she recalls how competitive it was to become ‘one of the girls – who all came from dancing backgrounds and the rule was that you had to work or be in full-time education. It was both intimidating and exciting to be a part of the team and it gave me the confidence to be out there.’ the cheerleading squad was not paid, however, and eventually her parents decided she needed a job so she moved into the business world as the Director of marketing in a medical manufacturing company ‘they sold medical mattresses’, she recalls, laughing. I ask her if she liked the job. she responds emphatically. ‘yes, I did! I sold those mattresses really well!they did so well that the company eventually went public.’ Amy moved to new york in 2000, marrying hedge fund manager John Phelan shortly afterwards. they have recently celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary. the couple started to collect art, opting not to hire any consultants or curators, preferring to carry out their own research. she admits ‘you can’t see everything’ but says they prefer a personal input. It is clear from looking around me, as I sit in their home, that this is a highly personal selection of a bold and educated eye. Amy is seated in front of a large abstraction by Willem de Kooning of swooping reds and blues hung over the sofa, each of its carefully judged marks adding something suggestive, erotic even in such a setting as this, to the canvas. But my attention today is focused instead on a less familiar sight, a black lacquer tray in front of me where there is an

board members as well as being ‘a steward of the organization'. she says, 'I take my responsibility as a trustee very seriously, I leave the personal at the door.’ As for the Guggenheim’s position in the new york City art hierarchy she says ‘it is the only international museum in the world’. John, her husband, is a trustee at the Aspen Art museum, and she is on both the national council of the museum and is the director of the gala committee, having run their successful summer benefit Art Crush for the past five years. Amy has also become a trustee for Creative time. she also tells me that she is a long-standing member of the new york Junior league, which encourages women to volunteer to support disadvantaged women. she is about to receive an award for service from the Junior league, and when I tease her gently, asking her where she will hang it, her response is a robustly humorous one: ‘I am printing it on tee shirts!’ talking about the Junior league leads us to a discussion of woman’s power. so much of the work in the collection deals with pornography, confronting the paradox of how these images can be both beautiful and sexy, and at the same time an embodiment of a potentially destructive life. she talks about the fred Burton image in the den nearby. ‘It is about an ambiguous image, you don’t know really what it is and it is both strange and beautiful’. I ask if the large triangular butterfly work by Damien hirst in the dining room is her only hirst, and she says ‘yes, here in new york, but now we have plenty in Aspen – a pharmaceutical vitrine, a spot painting, a spin painting, one of the 700,000 of them, but I love them – but I think the new paintings may be priced too high.’ I ask what she thinks about hirst's forthcoming show The End of an Era at the Gagosian Gallery in new york, and she smiles and shrugs. ‘I think his work is too expensive for many people’. she collects Chuck Close's works and has been to his studio on many occasions. ‘We adore and love his work and his prices are so much lower, and his production is so much slower.’ the photographer Poppy de Villeneuve, who has come to photograph Amy, has arrived during our talk and asks her about the predominant color green present not only in the sweets in the living room but in the wallpaper and furnishings of the large dining room nearby and the den next to us. Amy says green is a special color to her, ‘carrying with it, not only connotations of prosperity and money but also eroticism and sexuality’. We are winding down our conversation and Poppy is anxious to start work. I ask Amy for a final word on collecting. her response turns into something akin to a mission statement: ‘It’s a life style but also life changing’. n

that minter said recently that it was the works about her mother which attracted attention and finally gained her respect in the art world. I ask about other artists whose studios she has visited and she names a few – Chuck Close, raqib shaw and marc Quinn in london, Israeli artist nir haad, ron mueck and Jim hodges. ‘Jim, like marilyn, has also become a friend.’ she recalls meeting him at an opening and immediately felt a spiritual connection with him. she has several works by hodges – a cut-paper piece here in new york as well as cobweb hangings and more cut-paper works in Aspen. she says, ‘this is what makes collecting the work of living artists so special. luckily, I have always found in the past that there is always a parallel relationship between the artist and the work and that if I like the work I usually like the artist,’ she says looking around for some wood to knock on. she has also met some artists through facebook. Initially she says, like so many others, she had become a member because her daughter wanted to join. she allowed it only if she could be her facebook friend and monitor her wall. she admits that she is more interested now than her daughter, going on first thing in the morning with her coffee and winding down with it late at night. she says that facebook is a form of ‘controlled voyeurism,’ she loves to look at other people’s photographs, so she puts many of her own photographs up as well. It is like looking through binoculars into people’s lives but you can step away as well.

«the matthew barney seemed to work with what i perceive as the core of our collection, beauty and destruction»

By noW the ChAmPAGne, pink of course, has been broken open and served in beautiful antique glasses, and the gloves are off. I ask about the central image above the fireplace, in which five topless woman stand in a row. ‘It is from matthew Barney's Cremaster Cycle’, she says, and points to a detail, ‘I love the fact that the foaming soap bubbles behind the girls are in the Guggenheim fountain’. she continues, ‘matthew Barney appealed to us as it seemed to work with what I perceive as the core of our collection, beauty and destruction’. I point to a small work on a table next to me in which two naked girls stand together. ‘It is by lisa yuskavage’ she says ‘it is an ambiguous image – it could be two sisters, or friends … I like the tenderness of the image.’ the Barney image is particularly apposite as it is the Guggenheim that invited Amy to be a trustee in 2007 and also to co-chair the international gala for 2008, 2009 and again this year. she admits that this museum has special challenges. ‘It is a hard installation, and everything is on a tilt even if you don’t realize it.’ But she states emphatically that it is a pleasure to be involved in it. she sees her job as supporting the curators and fellow

ALTHouGH THE ARTIST’S multiple has long been considered secondary to the unique art object, recent museum shows and gallery initiatives have renewed interest in limited editions. The multiple has emerged as a timely opportunity to circulate art to a broader audience and expand its scope from the more usual contemplative exhibition space to unexpected interventions into everyday life. The opening of the Gagosian Shop on Madison Avenue in September 2009 is a high-profile part of this new focus on the multiple’s status in contemporary art production. Featuring Jeff Koons’s puppy-shaped flower vases and Damien Hirst’s Superstition plates, among others, the new venture proposes the multiple as an artform that merits a specific context for its presentation and distribution. The limited edition is no longer a collateral practice, but a legitimate method of artistic expression with its own logic and possibilities. Pop Life, Tate Modern’s recent group show on the exchange between art and commerce, investigated the multiple’s conceptual and ideological origins in Warholian Pop art philosophy and the New York art scene of the 1980s. Keith Haring’s Pop Shop, a New York store that closed in 2005 after 20 years of business, was faithfully reconstructed at the center of the exhibition space, inviting visitors to buy the artist’s signature trinkets. Eerily identical to the original, the reinstallation was more mournful and reflective than celebratory, despite the installation’s endless cycle of upbeat pop tunes. The idealism behind Haring’s merchandise has all but vanished through its ubiquity, but through the Pop Shop’s fleeting reappearance each keychain and t-shirt reacquired its sense of creative, democratic purpose. Redirecting us to the present day, one Star Press’s recent show Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in Paris presented a constellation of artists that reconsidered the editioned book as more than a mere supplement to artistic practice but as a think tank in which to question and explore concepts that are then translated into material forms. Photographers are also producing series specifically designed for limited editioned books, as Vince Aletti discusses in his article for this issue. Despite the serious, analytical bent of these recent exhibits, the multiple is still fundamentally associated with bravado and cheekiness. Aligning themselves with the caustic yet elegant wit of a Duchampian ready-made, some of the most interesting contemporary multiples puncture the aura of seriousness conventionally associated with traditional ‘original’ art. Cerealart, a Philadelphia-based company that works with artists to design whimsical and affordable artist editions, captures an irreverent spirit in their perpetually expanding inventory. Marcel Dzama’s melting snowmen, porcelain figures that distill the artist’s trademark love of dark fairytales, function doubly as art and canisters. More diabolically, Elmgreen and Dragset’s Forgotten Baby is a prop for a perverse practical joke, allowing you to leave a lifelike wax baby in the backseat of your car seat or on your neighbor’s doorstep. Cerealart’s most famous piece is probably the miniature replica of the infamous Wrong Gallery, the minute exhibition space in New York spearheaded by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick, that comes with tiny art objects for anyone to curate their own portable show. At the opposite end of the spectrum, several artists have deployed the multiple to integrate their practice into the everyday, rendering their interventions almost imperceptible. Tobias Rehberger’s redesign for the cafeteria at the 53rd Venice Biennale last year won him the Golden Lion for Best Artist for insinuating art into the practice of everyday life, as many visitors, including myself, did not immediately realize the exuberantly designed café was also an installation. The café’s espresso cups, designed by Rehberger for Illy, were also available at the Biennale’s store, part of a long tradition of Illy commissioning artists to design espresso sets, allowing visitors to take part of the prize-winning installation home with them. In the realm of art meeting fashion, Louisa Guinness has revived the tradition of artists designing jewelry by collaborating with artists like Ed Ruscha, Anish Kapoor, and Tim Noble and Sue Webster to produce earrings, bookmarks and cufflinks, which are on display at Ben Brown Fine Arts. Similarly, the environmentally conscious fashion accessories company Elvis & Cress has partnered with the Arts Co to commission Lothar Götz, Paul Morrison and olivier Millagou to repurpose waste into fashionable handbags, aligning themselves with art’s recent imperative to take over social space and alter our everyday habits. n 23

Louise bourgeois a Law unto herseLf text sarah kent

'A woman has no place as an artist until she proves over and over that she won’t be eliminated.'

Louise Bourgeois in 2007

A wonderful photogrAph of louise Bourgeois taken by dimitris Yeros in 2007 shows her, head resting on hand, gazing into the middle distance. Shot from below to enhance her stature and authority, the portrait presents her as a wise woman, a seer. her lined face reveals her advanced age, but it’s her eyes that grab your attention; their intelligence and vitality indicate that, at the age of 98, she is still very much a force to be reckoned with. look more closely and you notice her teeshirt; written in capitals across the front is her name followed by those of artists Jenny holzer, Cindy Sherman and Bruce weber, her juniors by about 50 years. with no gaps between the words, the letters form a solid block of interrelationships – the warp and weft, as it were, of contemporary American art. And presiding over this cultural continuum, louise Bourgeois assumes the role of fountainhead. It may seem perverse, in an issue on art now, to feature an artist approaching her centenary, but there are compelling reasons for doing so. Bourgeois no longer leaves her new York brownstone, but she still works obsessively every day and, unlike artists who have one big idea which they explore for the rest of their lives with increasing predictability, she continues to surprise. not only does her work get better and better, it remains amazingly fresh. take for example a recent series of bronze sculptures, the Echos, cast from jumpers, jackets and sweat shirts. draped over poles to keep them upright during the casting process, the garments appear to stand unsupported, miraculously defying gravity. A jumper balances on one arm with the poise of a ballet dancer while holding the other arm aloft as though in celebration. Bourgeois is clearly interested in imperfection

rather than ideal form, yet Brancusi’s Bird in Space (1923) comes to mind; because of the associations triggered by clothing, though, one tends to see the sculptures as figures, which makes one think of giacometti’s spindly pedestrians, such as Walking Man (1960). while acknowledging the past, Bourgeois’ sculptures are a new departure, though. the bronze is hidden beneath a coat of white paint whose pallor produces a ghostly uniformity reminiscent of a shroud. But thoughts of death are banished by the amazing variety and expressiveness of the figures; these are not lifeless bodies, but individuals animated by the will to survive. Some are scrawny, others bloated; some droop like withered fruits, others are inflated by sickness, lust or greed; some figures cocoon themselves against the cold while others seem naked, exposing distended guts within swollen bellies. It is tempting to see them as self-portraits – observations about the aging body, but also as declarations of the fact that, in defiance of time, Bourgeois is very much alive, as an artist and a woman. her work has always been an oblique commentary on her state of mind. In this respect, the recent bronzes are reminiscent of the Personages she began in 1941, when she had lived in newYork for just three years and was dreadfully homesick for her native france. working on the roof of her apartment building on east 18th Street, she made spindly wooden figures, inspired by the surrounding skyscrapers, that stand alone or are clustered in family groups, surrogates for the people she had left behind – ‘creating a past that I could not do without’, was how she put it. whereas the bronze figures sag, droop and furl, these early totems are as stiff as poles. It’s ‘the stiffness of someone who’s afraid’, Bourgeois

has explained. ‘the way one can say, “he’s scared stiff”. Immobilized with fear. Stuck.’ Bracketing her career as neatly as bookends, the two series reflect with remarkable fidelity her position in the new York art world – then a hesitant newcomer, now an established grande dame. while the wooden figures stand to attention as though dutifully awaiting their turn, the bronzes demonstrate how, with a seemingly effortless flourish, a simple idea can been turned into a complex statement about humanity – once you have the skill and experience. And she continues to explore new themes. Les Fleurs is a recent suite of gouaches of flowers. Blotches of crimson paint evoke petals, buds and stems with extreme subtlety; but they also resemble pools of blood and remind one that, since biblical times, menstruation has often been referred to euphemistically as a woman’s ‘flowers’ and that blossoms contain the sexual organs of plants. the underlying theme of this exquisite series, then, seems to be fertility. the relationship in people’s minds between fertility and creativity is a long established one; it is commonplace, for instance, to talk of giving birth to an image or an idea and, since Bourgeois’ flowers resemble bodily emanations, it is not too fanciful to see them as emblems of this emotive link – while also enjoying them as flowers pulsing with vigorous life. louISe BourgeoIS wAS born in paris on Christmas day, 1911. her father, louis, was disappointed not to have a boy; but she was named after him and, as his spitting image, became his favorite, despite the arrival of a son thirteen months later. louise was to lose her position to an intruder, though; her english governess became her father’s mistress and stayed with 25

the family for ten years. Memories of the intense jealousy induced by this betrayal still provide Bourgeois with one of her most enduring themes. ‘My work is a series of exorcisms’, she has said. ‘one of my most important subjects is Sadie gordon richmond …the mistress is a threat because she is the favorite. Competition with the mother is one thing, but competition with a chosen favorite is unthinkable, intolerable.’ the family moved to Choisy-le-roi just outside paris, then to Antony where the river Bièvre flowed through their garden. her parents restored antique tapestries and the tannin in the water was essential for the dyes. In 1936 Bourgeois moved to paris to study art and soon began exhibiting. She started dealing in prints and drawings from her father’s tapestry gallery and there met art historian robert goldwater whom she married in 1938. the couple moved to the States, adopted a french child and subsequently had two of their own. despite bringing up three sons, Bourgeois continued to work and, little by little, gained visibility in the new York art world. But it was an uphill struggle and international attention came only after her husband’s death in 1973. Since the late 1970s, her reputation has grown rapidly; in 1977 she received an honorary doctorate from Yale university; in 1982 she became the first woman to have a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, new York, and in 1993 she represented the united States at the Venice Biennale. today she is considered one of the most important living artists and, despite her age, continues to accept major commissions. In 2000, she was the first artist to make an installation for the vast turbine hall in london’s tate Modern and, in June, her memorial to the witches burned in Vardo, norway, in the seventeenth

century will be unveiled – in the form of a flaming chair surrounded by a ring of mirrors, contained inside a glass structure designed by the architect peter Zumthor. further, two important exhibitions open this April – the nationalgalerie in Berlin will exhibit Bourgeois’ work in dialogue with that of hans Bellmer, and the fondazione Vedova in Venice will mount an in-depth installation of Bourgeois’ fabric drawings. A retroSpeCtIVe orgAnIZed by tate Modern in london in 2007, which traveled to the Centre pompidou in paris, the guggenheim in new York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in los Angeles, and the hirshhorn in washington d.C., was clearly intended as a definitive statement. focusing on key pieces that are among the most iconic and troubling works of the 20th and early 21st centuries, it set out to consolidate her reputation and confirm her place in history. It is worth looking at some of these masterpieces as a reminder of the extraordinary diversity of her work. At one time, the artist suffered from agoraphobia and was unable to leave the house; the painting series Femme Maison (Housewife, 1945–47) features a woman trapped inside a house as if imprisoned by domesticity. Fillette (Little Girl, 1968) dangles from a meat hook like a skewered trophy. Close inspection reveals a vaginal opening nestling between the spheres at the base of the latex shaft. the giant phallus turns out to be androgynous; rather than a joke about male narcissism and sexual obsession, it implies that we are all in thrall to desire. ‘the sculptures reveal a whole life based on eroticism; the sexual or the absence of sex is everything,’ says Bourgeois. ‘eroticism can be real or imagined, reciprocated or not. there is desire, the flirtation, the fear of failure, vulnerability,

jealousy and violence. I’m interested in all the elements.’ Arch of Hysteria (1993) is a bronze cast of a slender headless male body that hangs by an umbilical thread like a gleaming human sacrifice, athletic yet vulnerable.the title refers to the work of 19th-century french neurologist, Jean-Martin Charcot, who studied the relationship between anxiety and physical tension. Bourgeois has also made a female Arch of which, she says, ‘pleasure and pain are merged in a state of happiness. her arch – the mounting of sexual tension and the release of tension – is sexual.’ But the male version seems to embody far more disturbing and conflicted emotions. It first appeared in Cell (Arch of Hysteria), one of the cell-like installations the artist began in the early 1990s. Sequestered at the heart of a bleak chamber constructed from sheet metal, the tense body lies on a bedcover embroidered ‘Je t’aime’ (I love you). presiding over the space like a weapon of torture is an ancient band saw. the prison-like surroundings and the presence of the machine suggest a state of agony rather than one of ecstasy; the victim has already lost his head and arms and the saw seems primed to dismember him further. this is not an image of sexual transport but of a body stretched on the rack of actual or anticipated torture; metaphorically speaking, this is the price exacted by love. In the mid-1990s, Bourgeois began stitching lumpen figures out of toweling, mattress ticking or pink bandage. Some are life-size, but many are like dolls whose small scale makes them seem vulnerable and their sexual antics absurd. Do Not Abandon Me is a mother and newborn infant sewn together from scraps of pink cloth, which addresses the artist’s ongoing fear of abandonment. ‘to be born is to be ejected’, she wrote. ‘to be abandoned.’ Bourgeois clearly

identifies with the infant yet, as a mother, she must surely empathize with the woman who, at this vulnerable moment, fears her lover’s rejection and anticipates her child turning its back on her. Such ambiguities transform this little sculpture into an exploration of reciprocity, of giving as a form of emotional blackmail and of the way the child inhabits the adult. the giant bronze spider, Maman (1999), is a tribute to her mother who, as an expert tapestry restorer, was adept at spinning and weaving. Bourgeois describes her as her best friend, but the sculpture suggests more ambivalent feelings; the scale of this monster would make anyone wary, especially as spiders are notorious for devouring their mates and drinking the blood of their prey. And the artist accuses her mother of complicity in spinning the web of deceit that characterized her childhood: ‘you, mother, are using me to keep track of your husband. this is child abuse.’ louISe BourgeoIS’ plACe in the art historical canon may be assured, but her formidable achievements are not the only reason for featuring her in this issue; the other is her ongoing influence on younger artists. It is hard to imagine the work eva hesse, Kiki Smith, Annette Messager, tracey emin, robert gober or Sarah lucas being possible without her example. Bourgeois’ influence has been pervasive, yet it is subtle and diffuse. her work forms a continuum in which themes such as love, jealousy, sex, gender, motherhood and the family are constantly revisited, but it takes so many different forms that it would be hard to copy stylistically. depending on the message she wants to convey, she switches from paint to wood, latex, marble, bronze, glass, fabric, embroidery, found objects

or installations. ‘Materials are not the subject of the artist’, she says. ‘the subject of the artist is: emotions … and ideas … Both.’ In effect, she has replaced adherence to the concept of ‘truth to materials’, espoused by many artists during her lifetime, with the more flexible one of ‘truth to oneself’, and it is this approach that has proved inspirational. Bourgeois’ primary audience has always been herself. this is partly a matter of choice, partly one of necessity. She is driven by compulsion, the need to alleviate the emotional conflicts engendered by her unorthodox childhood. ‘Art is a guaranty of sanity’, she has said. ‘I organize a sculpture the way we organize a treatment for the sick. You have to have a strategy to get the wanted results … does the tension go down, is the compulsion eliminated, is the pain gone?’ She suffers from insomnia and fills the sleepless hours in an ongoing conversation with herself that takes the form of lists and jottings resembling poems, exorcisms or chants. And in countless drawings and watercolors she employs the repeating patterns of grids, circles and spirals to soothe her damaged psyche, as one might repeat a mantra or repair a tapestry with myriad stitches. louise Bourgeois is a law unto herself; disregarding fame or fashion, she places herself and her obsessions at the heart of her practice. ‘Success in art’, she has said, ‘is measured by how nearly you have arrived at what you want to say.’ And this determination to follow an agenda prompted by her own drives, ambitions and desires has empowered subsequent generations of women to ignore fashion and determine their own subject matter and approach. As a result, her influence permeates practically every aspect of the ethos in which women artists work today.

Louise Bourgeois in 2009 Tracey Emin, Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963–1995, 1995

Born In 1963, tracey emin was brought up in the seaside town of Margate, Kent. She was abused from the age of eight and, after being raped at thirteen, became promiscuous. the depression that followed led to attempted suicide, but through her work, she has found ways of exorcising the pain; rage is converted into raw energy and self-pity into an unflinching appetite for self-exploration. In drawings, paintings, videos, sculptures, appliquéd blankets and neon signs, she continually revisits childhood traumas. She ruthlessly mines this resource, systematically probing the disappointment, fear and loneliness felt so keenly as a child, while also celebrating her adult sexuality and the euphoria of new love. one of the generation know asYBAs (Young British Artists), emin has often been dubbed the bad girl of British art. her most famous sculpture, Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-95 was destroyed in a fire. the walls of an igloo-shaped tent were appliquéd with the names of everyone she had shared a bed with since birth, including her twin brother and the fetuses that briefly lodged in her own womb. A makeshift temple to intimacy, it was a poignant testimony to the ease with which relationships are broken. In 1999 emin was nominated for the turner prize and exhibited an unmade bed surrounded by the detritus of sex, drink and sickness; in 2007 she became a

member of the royal Academy and represented Britain at the Venice Biennale, showing paintings of the female nude. I spoke to her on the phone in Australia, where she is escaping the winter cold. Could she recall her first encounter with a work by louise Bourgeois? ‘I remember seeing an exhibition of her prints, which I loved, and thinking she was my age,’ emin replies. ‘But it wasn’t until I saw her textile work that I felt any connection; it was like finding a kindred spirit. her drawings are like mental maps; they come from a similar world to mine, from another place – the mind or the memory – and we’re dealing with similar subject matter, anger and the internalization of it. ‘the impact she has had on the world has been slow in coming; she kept going until, finally, her work filtered through to everyone’s psyche and now she is one of the most seminal artists ever. She is really inspiring as an example of what a successful artist should be. Most people’s work goes downhill after they’ve peaked and become famous, but hers has gone up, not down; there’s no sense of a falling away. Its like sex; men just come once, but women keep on coming!’ what qualities does she admire in her? ‘I like the way she repeats and repeats and is not ashamed of arriving at a problem she can’t solve. Because she’s trying to work things out for her own sake, she doesn’t care if people say “we’ve seen that before”. her work is quite obsessive, but I think it’s really honest; there’s a genuineness about it.’ has she ever met Bourgeois? ‘I met her in new York about two months ago and she told me off for not coming before. She has invited me to collaborate on a series of prints of a woman in various stages of pregnancy. It’s a powerful subject for me at the moment, because I’ve just had major surgery to remove scar tissue from my ovaries and womb. I’m too old to have a child with my own eggs; but it’s all over now, anyway. I’ve just got to get well and fit; I’m lucky I’ve got my art.’ how would she describe Bourgeois’ legacy? ‘her stature has changed the potential for women coming after her. we’ve had no women who compare with, say, picasso and Matisse, but now we can cite her as an example. the art world is still extremely sexist; for women it’s still difficult. I was oblivious to it when I was younger, but now I’ve got older I see it more clearly. I was powered by my sexual drive; it was what got me out of bed in the morning. But what powers a 98-yearold? her career is a brilliant example of the fact that it doesn’t have to stop, but to come from a different place. You have to recreate, redefine and rethink. ‘when I have a creative block and feel low, I think about my visit to her house. She put these bright cerise drawings on the floor and it was magical. I thought, “She is so prolific, imaginative and inventive; if she can achieve that at her age, I can kick myself into doing some work.” I’ve definitely got a lifetime’s work in me, because it’s getting more intense, more streamlined and more itself. when I was in Venice I had a vision of myself at eighty. I thought, “I’ll be making art for another forty years like louise Bourgeois, so just get through this. there’s plenty of time”.’

«i feeL part of her famiLy» aLice anderson

Born In englAnd in 1976 to an Algerian mother and english father, Alice Anderson was brought up in france. her parents separated when she was three and her mother took her to nice, forbidding her from mentioning england or her father again. this prompted her to fantasize about who she was and where she came. later she studied fine art at the Beaux-Arts in paris then, in defiance of her mother’s ban, came to london in 2004 to study at goldsmiths College. when I first saw her work, I was struck by uncanny resemblances between her subject matter and that of louise Bourgeois and when I spoke to her, I was amazed by the similarities in approach. ‘She is a very important artist,’ Anderson confirms. ‘Along with people like eva hesse, and Annette Messager, whom I studied with, I feel part of her family. we have similar preoccupations and a similar approach and way of thinking. I’m totally obsessional, which is maybe what links us, as well as the way we talk about childhood. It was very strange for me to live in a country where I didn’t speak the language (I didn’t talk until I was six) with a mother who was physically so different from me. I got a real shock when I saw my father; it was like looking in a mirror. Being in england is very important to me; its like inhabiting a world I imagined as a child.’ A photograph of louise Bourgeois taken in 1946 shows her sitting at an easel in her new York apartment, her shoulders and back cloaked in a mane of hair reaching to her waist. long hair often features in her drawings and prints; sometimes it forms a protective mantle but, at others, it traps the hapless woman in a tight cocoon. Anderson inherited her red hair from her father and it makes dramatic appearances in her work. rapunzel, an installation involving three thousand metres of red hair, was recently installed in three venues – the picasso Museum, paris, the frac paca, Marseille, and the Marc Chagall national Museum, nice. this March, riflemaker gallery in london will be entwined

in a length of hair threaded down chimneys and through windows. ‘I’ve seen that photograph of louise Bourgeois’, Anderson confirms, ‘but I’ve not been aware of references to hair in her drawings. when I work I’m not conscious of other artists; otherwise I’d be thinking everything has been done already.’ despite being a mother, in her work Bourgeois frequently casts herself in the role of a child. Anderson explores the mother/daughter relationship through the use of surrogates including a life-sized waxwork and a marionette which, in a series of photographs called Master Puppet, is seen manipulating her. role reversal is also the subject of My Mother, a series of videos in which the artist plays both mother and daughter. ‘In a mother/daughter relationship you feel the tension,’ she says. ‘power makes itself felt like a character or person; that’s why I’m interested in family relationships.’

Bourgeois often works at night, when she can’t sleep. ‘has the day invaded the night or has the night invaded the day?’ she asks in a diptych that pairs image with text. ‘I work a lot at night or in the early morning,’ Anderson tells me. ‘I wake up around 4 am and the best hours are when I’m very tired and not far from sleep. Sometimes I work all night, but the rule is there’s no rule.’ ‘Am I a ghost of louise Bourgeois?,’ Anderson asks. ‘there are a lot of similarities, but the way I do things and the preoccupations are mine, even if they are the same. And I have the feeling that I have no choice; it’s what keeps me going. If I don’t work I can’t live; it’s more important than life itself.’ A london exhibition is being planned in which Anderson’s films, drawings and sculptures will be shown alongside three videos of Bourgeois at work, made by Brigitte Cornand over a period of twelve years, starting in 1994. n

YoU coULD NoT ask for a more reliable arbiter of taste to write about an artist to represent NoW than Hans Ulrich obrist. He is an intrepid studio visitor and exhibition-goer, with his antennae permanently tuned to the zeitgeist, not to mention that he was recently named Number one in an art world Power 100. I bumped into Hans Ulrich at the New Museum in New York. He introduced me to Eungie Joo, recently appointed the curator for the Generational Triennial at the New Museum for 2012. She enquired if Hans Ulrich had heard of Tavares Strachan? His animated response led me to commission this article.

-Karen Wright

I first saw Tavares’ work in Pierogi 2000 in Brooklyn, and now he is going into outer space. I think he is very interesting. I saw his Arctic Ice Project – in which he transported an iceberg from the Arctic River to the Bahamas and then to Miami – and while he is definitely a follower of Olafur Eliasson who, in a show I co-curated in Paris in 1998 (Nuit Blanche-Scènes nordiques les années 9), put these gigantic melting ice pieces above Paris, this piece by Tavares is different to Olafur's work. With Tavares – at least with the works we have seen so far – there is the question of one thing existing simultaneously as scientific vitrine and as an ice block, producing a symbiosis of pieces. Tavares’ works are very much experiments. He is interested, in some way, in the production of reality, and not representation. He made these rockets – which are very funny – in Nassau, so somehow you could say he is on the edge of outer space. These kind of artist-inventors are in a post-Buckminster Fuller mode in that they are concerned less about producing types of objects than in finding ways to produce reality. Carsten Höller, in his perceptual explorations and investigation of place, along with Olafur, seem to be predecessors to Tavares. We see this very strongly too with Phillippe Parreno, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Pierre Huyghe, who all investigate the ordinary through this idea of how to produce reality. This also continues with a younger generation of artists like Tomas Saraceno. One can clearly connect Tavares and his experiments with the work of someone likeTomas who, in the last ten years, has also worked in some interesting ways with experiments in developing parallel universes. Tomas was one of my

students when I was teaching at the IUAV in Venice and one of Daniel Birnbaum’s pupils in the Frankfurt Städelschule – and I remember when Daniel and I talked about this extraordinary young guy we had met! I still remember when Tomas had his first public appearance at the Venice Architectural Biennale. He convinced the powers-that-be to place his floating city, made with very light materials, above the railway station. It sounded like a Utopia, and while it somehow didn’t totally work, it made us all dream. Tavares makes me think of Tomas and Buckminster Fuller. I hear these rumors that he may well be the first artist to go into outer space. We need to fact check that though! He is preparing to become a cosmonaut. I think in 2006 he had already started negotiations with the Yu.A.Gagarin State Scientific Research-andTesting Cosmonaut Training Center and with the Institute of Oceanology in Russia – so he really does his training. It is quite extraordinary that Tavares may be the first, or at least one of the first, visual artists to go into outer space! There is quite a long history of space projects illustrated by the large numbers of unrealized extra-terrestrial projects that I have collected over the years, and most of them relate to science fiction. Now they relate more to halfcomplete or quasi-complete Utopias. I think this may be a result of climate change – which we need to fight with a sense of urgency – and as a parallel action there are also parallel realities that can be explored. I am currently working on a project with Olafur on an architecture project about whether we can project a city into outer space. We must not forget that the inventor-artists are only one strain of artists identifiable at the moment. Everywhere I go, there are artists making interesting drawings. The practice encompasses many positions from Richard Wright, Katerina Seda, Trisha Donnelly, Susan Hefuna to Keren Cytter. It seems almost like a resistance to the internet. Then there are also practitioners like Tino Sehgal, whose exhibition is about to open at the Guggenheim, who have a desire for non-mediated experience. Finally, there are artists like Simon Fujiwara and Christodoulos Panayiotou who embrace the world as a stage. n

anne pasternak fly me to the moon interview karen wright | portraits anna wolf

city was on the verge of bankruptcy but Contini and scott Brown felt that nevertheless people could be getting something more from art at that difficult time. They saw the potential in making use of the vast number of empty buildings, to get artists out of the studio and, in doing so, demystify their practices by getting them to meet their public. pasternak points out that it is important to put the founding days of Creative Time into context, reminding me that during the 1970s there were few galleries selling contemporary art. ‘It was a highly politically charged moment and artists themselves were talking about dispersing work from the museums,’ she says. ‘At the same time, in the spirit of collaboration, they were forming artistic co-operatives.’ Creative Time emerged from the spirit of the moment. ‘It is important to state that this was not in response to what was going on in the realms of public art – something that is still true,’ she explains, firmly. ‘public art is something else’ – a subject we return to later in our discussion. I ask about Creative Time’s formative projects and pasternak recalls an early and, in retrospect, prophetic manifestation called Art on the Beach on the site of the Battery park landfill. ‘It was a collaboration between architects, artists and performance, something which was not the norm in the 70s,’ she says. Although it is not clear how historically important these early Creative Time projects were, pasternak points out that important policy decisions were set down at this point, establishing a clear vision for the organization. ‘stated simply, it is that the artist matters in society and that social issues matter,’ she says. ‘public spaces are meant for artists. By introducing artists to public spaces, the consequences are good both for the viewer and for the artist. For the artist, it pushes their practice forward, while the viewer learns something beyond the political statement.’ The final criterion for doing projects is that artists are socially engaged – a point we return to several times.

The Cookshop, A popular restaurant in New York’s Chelsea, is buzzing. I am here to talk to Anne pasternak, the president and creative director of Creative Time. It is almost farcical how we are continually interrupted by people who know her. she assures me, with some embarrassment, that she did not plot for two of the Creative Time’s trustees, philip Aarons and Liz swig, to also be there at lunch. Aarons, Chair of the Board at artists’ books pioneers printed Matter, is dining with the artist A. A. Bronson, printed Matter’s Director, discussing the book for Invocation of the Queer Spirits – a Creative Time project. In addition to the trustee barrage, Walid Raad, an artist working with CreativeTime, walks by on 10th Avenue and comes in to give pasternak a hug. Brett Littman, the director of the Drawing Center, comes over to say hello. Not to be outdone, I hug Los Angeles painter Lari pitmann. I mention these liaisons not just for their coincidental value – the Cookshop has, after all, become Chelsea’s canteen-central – but to illustrate the palpable warmth and high regard that everyone displays to pasternak, as well as the informality of the scene. swig offers to de-lint pasternak for her photo shoot later, while I proffer an email address to Aarons for his forthcoming stay in Turin. At the same time, it is a poignant moment, with the sadness of the recent earthquake in haiti hanging over our conversation, to be discussing the balance maintained by Creative Time between art and socio-political matters. pasternak has been Director of Creative Time since 1994. previously, she had been at a small gallery where she met her husband, the artist Mike starn. she admits that she liked selling work but she enjoyed working with artists more. When the job came up at Creative Time, it seemed the perfect match for her, and she says today that she is remarkably lucky to be in an organization that parallels her vision so closely. Creative Time was founded in adverse circumstances in 1974 by two women, who at that time worked in New York City government. The 37

«vik muniz drew a cartoon image of a cloud over manhattan on a napkin and that is how the clouds project was created»

Pasternak remembers that it was no coincidence that the project was timed for the week before the Bush/Kerry presidential election of 2004 – Holzer’s airborne phrases included ‘ABUSE OF POWER COMES AS NO SURPRISE’, among others. Pasternak wonders how different the response would have been if the planes had flown over somewhere like Nebraska rather than over art-saturated New York City. It became clear to her that there was no reason that Creative Time could not help artists respond to things that happened outside New York. After the devastating events of Hurricane Katrina, Pasternak says she was waiting for an artist to propose a project about the tragedy.That artist turned out to be Paul Chan, who suggested the work Waiting for Godot (2007), comprising four performances in New Orleans of Samuel Beckett’s play. Chan’s piece was prompted by a

visit to an eerily quiet post-Katrina New Orleans, during which he saw the plight of the people as they waited patiently for help to rebuild their city. AS WEll AS welcoming artist proposals, Pasternak has a knack for persuading reluctant artists to make public projects. Before Holzer had taken art to the skies, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz, a long-term friend of Pasternak’s had created, as she puts it, a “more lyrical project”, Clouds in 2001. ‘I had been in conversation with Vik for seven years,’ she says, ‘and he kept saying, “My work is not about public projects.”’ But Pasternak was convinced that his work chimed well with the ethos of Creative Time. ‘We were lunching,’ she laughs, ‘and he said he wanted to do something with clouds and he drew a cartoon image of a cloud over Manhattan on a napkin and that is how the project Clouds was created. Creative Time hired skywriters to paint clouds in the sky,’ a shape, she recalls, not easy to make. Muniz’s project was meant to take place over a week but it was a windy spring so, in fact, it was spread over five months. Pasternak remembers receiving numerous letters from people saying how touched they had been – children sent sketches, and she had a letter from one man who said that he had seen a heart in the sky and had proposed to his girlfriend under that cloud – and she gets quite emotional as she recalls a letter in which a woman recounted how her son, a successful restaurateur, had recently collapsed suddenly with a brain aneurism and died. On the way to the cemetery to inter her son, she had looked up into the sky as she passed the Yankee stadium and saw a catcher’s mitt and thought her son was sending her a message. Pasternak says this is the reward for these projects: ‘This simple concept could mean so many different things and touch so many people.’ Clouds will never be done again in New York, as she points out: ‘It was lucky it was pre-9/11, or it could not have happened.’ As with Muniz, she had been pestering Doug Aitken for about seven years to do a project and, similarly, he kept saying he was not a public artist, ‘when again, in a restaurant, he sketched an idea on a napkin,’ she says. The result was Sleepwalkers (2007), a series of enormous synced video projections, which showed a number of individuals (two played by actors Tilda Swinton and Donald Sutherland) moving from from their private worlds out into the metropolis. ‘He wanted Sleepwalkers to reflect humanity in a shiny impersonal skyscraper,’ Pasternak explains. She set him the task of finding a site for the projection and he told her he had came across one on 54th Street, wrapped in scaffolding. The building Aitken had chosen turned out to be the unfamiliar back view of the Museum of Modern Art. And so began a fruitful collaboration with MoMA, whose façades were the site of several of the projections. Pasternak has had many partners on projects but she claims that

It is clear that some projects are personal favorites. She talks fondly about working with Jenny Holzer on For the City in 2004, admitting that it was a project with particular challenges initially. Fund-raising was difficult – at that time, Holzer was not seen as a hot artist of the moment: ‘She was considered so 80s,’ says Pasternak, incredulously. In addition, Holzer’s ideas were typically ambitious. She had initially wanted to work with projections on blimps but it soon became clear that there were logistical problems relating to the legibility of the projected words. Worse than that, from a planning perspective, the blimps would not be available if there were large sporting events. In the end, it was decided that Holzer could do building projections but, to take the work into another dimension, Creative Time would hire planes used for trailing advertising banners and substitute Holzer’s slogans.

Mike Nelson, A Psychic Vacuum, 2007

none were as supportive and generous than MoMA: ‘Glenn Lowry [Director of MoMA] was immediately on board and he allowed us to lead the project.’ My recollection of seeing the work, sitting on the front steps of a brownstone on a freezing evening, remains strong – it was, despite the cold, a tremendously moving experience. ‘It was as if it was our fault that the projections happened during a terrific cold snap!’ pasternak laughs again. ‘other than that, Sleepwalkers was universally well-received.’ The sleekness of Aitken’s films is in stark contrast to another project which pasternak remembers fondly. ‘Mike Nelson was another personal favorite of mine’, she says of the British artist’s Psychic Vacuum, a typically labyrinthine installation full of enigmatic spaces and repurposed objects in the old and then unused essex street Market in New York’s Lower east side. Nelson himself came and spent three weeks in the city looking for the materials for the project with typical commitment and fastidiousness. ‘It was during the building boom and it would have been impossible to have a budget to buy vintage doors, so Mike went far out of the city to find them,’ she recalls. Nelson was not well-known in New York, and pasternak was concerned that he might not get a big audience. Also, she was forced to give him a small budget, as money was hard to raise, but the bush telegraph of the art world helped to increase visitors to the project. ‘By the last weekends of the project there were up to three thousand people standing patiently in line to get into see the work,’ she says. Creative Time has worked with some of the great artists of the last three decades, but pasternak still has a list of artists who she would like to work with. she reviews this list a few times every year, often taking the artists out to lunch to discuss potential projects. I ask if there is anyone on the list who she has a particularly burning ambition to work with. she sighs deeply. ‘We still haven’t managed to hook in Francis Alÿs – he would be perfect,’ she explains. ‘It’s not just that he is doing socially relevant work – he is doing important work!’ I ask if there are projects that are firmly in the pipeline which have not been announced. ‘I am thinking about projects with sophie Calle and Laurie Anderson – but both of these artists have a slow lead time,’ she says. And any regrets? ‘I am sad never to have worked with sol LeWitt.’ NoW IN A CoNTeMpLATIVe mood, pasternak describes the project she did in response to 9/11. she recounts that she was standing outside the CreativeTime office when she saw the first plane on that terrible day. ‘No one knew anything. We still thought they were terrible accidents. The towers? one minute they were there and then there was just a puff of white smoke.’ In the aftermath, the art director of the New York Times

Magazine phoned her and asked for help, as they wanted an artist’s response to the event as a cover. While she told them she thought it would be hard to get an artist to respond to the event that quickly, she had been scheduled to talk to two young artists, Julian LaVerdiere and paul Myoda, about a work they were planning to do with light – a large biosphere that would use the south tower as a platform – which would have been one of Creative Time’s most expensive and ambitious projects to date. The project’s connection with the World Trade Center encouraged her to suggest to the Times that they should call the two artists, and LaVerdiere and Myoda’s drawing of a pillar of light graced the cover of the magazine the following week. The response was overwhelming, with many people writing in to Creative Time saying how important this image was to them, and how fitting a tribute it was. pasternak took note of the 16,000-odd letters, all of which asked if this plan could be made into a permanent work, and Tribute in Light was realized in early 2002. It was simple in concept, with two beams of light (or ‘beacons’ as the artists put it) shining up from the ground in Lower Manhattan into the night sky. Realized by a team consisting of the artists, architects John Bennett and Gustavo Bonevardi of pRoUN space studio, architect Richard Nash Gould, and lighting designer paul Marantz, Tribute in Light was a fitting testimony to the transformative quality of art and it continues to be shown on 9/11 anniversaries. ‘It's a privilege to work with projects that change lives,’ pasternak says, reflectively. This passion to effect social change runs through Creative Time’s new collaboration with Not on our Watch, a charity formed by the actors of Ocean’s Eleven who became aware of the appalling atrocities in the sudanese region of Darfur while they were filming in 2001. Not on our Watch attempts to use artists and cultural figures to draw attention to human tragedies, and thereby create an awareness on a different level to that which can be achieved by politicians and policy makers. In doing so, the organization attempts to provide humanitarian assistance and, ultimately, to stop human rights atrocities. ‘An artist can change conversations,’ pasternak says, ‘it becomes a different kind of conversation.’ The idea is that artists go into refugee camps, in this case in Thailand, and propose ideas based on their experiences. The initiative will culminate in a public project that hopes to raise public awareness of the political situation in Thailand. ‘It will be different from just a celebrity visit,’ she says. ‘It is a risky thing to be doing. It is essential that the artist’s relationship with the people inside the camp is respectful.’ While pasternak is against the traditional ideas behind public art projects, typically those that place large commemorative sculptures in public places, she admits that last year’s first edition of pLoT, a quadrennial public art event,

«artists have to live too. i am always aware of paying the artist and trying to support their gallery»

Above: Jenny Holzer, For the City, 2005 Opposite: Anne Pasternak below Spencer Finch’s The River That Flows Both Ways. The work was commissioned by Creative Time, Friends of the High Line and the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. It is located where the High Line meets the Chelsea Market between 15th and 16th Streets

was meant to begin early in 2010 with Creative Time’s involvement. ‘But they have already started without us; they opened in september.’ I ask how long Creative Time will be involved and she admits that it is not clear. ‘It is an ongoing project, I don’t know how long it will take,’ she says. ‘It comes out of artists’ desire to rework the traditional arts college. Look at the Black Mountain project as well as others that were more short lived. It is an artist-to-artist education. We are encouraging them to produce a textbook and maybe go on the road to educate in the schools.’ ThIs Is NoT the only project which attempts to do things differently to most the event-led project producing organizations. Recently Creative Time received funding from the Rockefeller Foundation to facilitate artists doing research on their artistic process.This is a manifestation of pasternak’s desire to work in a global fashion – as Creative Time’s artist list and their choice of destinations are truly international. There are identifiable objectives that she hopes to accomplish through this work, she says, namely ‘to get off the racetrack of the art world and to allow that artist to get out of the studio in order to pursue research for their projects.’ There are already six artists involved with the scheme including Walid Raad, emily Jacir, Maya Lin, k8 hardy, Judi Werthein and sanford Biggers. pasternak is clear that some concrete projects may emerge from this collaboration but stresses that it is more important that the research pushes the artist’s practice – if there is no tangible work when the research ends, the partnership will not have failed. other international projects in process at the moment include those by Danish-Icelandic artist Jakob Boeskov who has gone to Nigeria, home to what is now the world’s second-largest film industry (after Bollywood), which is informally labeled Nollywood. Boeskov usually works in video but will collaborate with Nigerian director Teco Benson to make a 20-minute short film that will be produced in Nollywood about a witch doctor posing as a Danish NGo worker. The producer will own the film and it will be shown in New York City when the artist returns. politically, Creative Time has been enjoying a high profile under pasternak's leadership. she admits she was excited to be contacted by the White house shortly after obama was sworn in, to attend a high-level White house briefing about arts policy. Another recent collaboration exemplifies pasternak’s desire to continually push Creative Time out of its comfort zone and enter into other worlds – quite literally. she has been talking to NAsA about doing projects in outer space and it seems as if the conversation is moving in the right direction. If anyone can push art beyond the third dimension, I feel it will be her. n Creative Time, 59 East 4th Street (6th Floor), New York, NY 10003. Tel. 212 206 6674

was Creative Time’s deepest excursion into this arena. entitled This World and Nearer Ones, the project took place on Governors Island. ‘I had always been interested in the Münster sculpture projects in Germany but knew with all the bureaucracy in NYC I could not hope to do a similar thing, but with Governors Island there was the possibility to do a Münster-like project in New York.’ she admits to being obsessed with the site for 12 years but had to wait first for the Coast Guard to leave the island. In the end there was not much time to install the works. one of the more problematic pieces in the quadrennial was Mark Wallinger’s work, Ferry, which at first seemed very straightforward. Wallinger wanted to turn the ferry boat that carries visitors to Governors Island into an artwork. his idea was in painting a ferry boat with two colors, each color labeled with the sign of a sheep or goat, a reference both to the movement of Dutch immigrants to Governors Island in the early 17th century on boats called horse, Cow, and sheep, and also to the New Testament parable of separating people into sheep and goats according to their kindness. Typically learned, thought-provoking stuff from Wallinger, in other words. But the ferry’s captain showed the idea to his wife, who recognized the biblical connotations, and was convinced that fanatics would come after the boat for taking on the Bible. During meetings, the ferry boat owner pointed out that it could be seen as if the captain was taking on the role of Jesus Christ. In addition, the red and green colors that Wallinger had chosen had maritime connotations (stop and go) and the ferry owner pointed out that this could also be a problem. ‘Creative Time has to listen to peoples’ concerns,’ insists pasternak, ‘and in the end, after a discussion with Mark, he agreed to change the colors to black and white.’ one of CreativeTime’s consistent aims is to draw attention to artists who might be acclaimed elsewhere but have a relatively low profile in the states. pasternak says that she cannot understand why Wallinger, like Mike Nelson, still has little visibility outside europe, with no New York commercial gallery. she recalls, for instance, that the artist hans haacke asked if he could meet Wallinger while he was installing, as he was a fan. she is clear that the artist’s market value benefits from being involved in Creative Time projects – and she is not ashamed of this. ‘Artists have to live too,’ she says. ‘I am always aware of paying the artists and trying to support their gallery.’ In order not to benefit herself, she does not collect. I ask about the educational strand of CreativeTime and in particular the radical project by the Bruce high Quality Foundation that they are supporting. she laughs. ‘BhQF are a group of artists who met while studying at Cooper hewitt and who were taught by hans haacke, Walid Raad and other great teachers. They have created their own university,’ she says. she points out BhQF’s eagerness to start the project – it 42

out of the darkroom Vince Aletti is a photography curator and critic based in new York city who writes frequently for the new Yorker and a variety of magazines. last year he curated ‘Avedon Fashion 1944–2000’ at the international center of Photography. Here we invited him to choose six photographers who reflect nOW.

At Any one time, probably a good four fifths of the world’s working photographers are ‘emerging’: getting started (or restarted), getting noticed, desperately treading water. It’s not easy: only the strong (and independently wealthy) survive. But if the economy isn’t encouraging and many galleries are on their last nerves, there’s an anything-goes openness when it comes to new photography and there are plenty of us hungry for regular doses of style and substance. the six photographers gathered here have plenty of both. they’re thriving at a moment when there is no dominant strategy, no cool school, and options abound. not every photograph has to be the size of a picture window, black-and-white is not just for traditionalists, frames are dispensable, the darkroom remains a site of wild-style experimentation, and galleries are not the only outlet. A lot of the strongest work I’ve seen recently has been in books, including a number of increasingly sophisticated ones coming out of independent publishers. Joshua Deaner’s I sell fish, which I first saw as a judge on the Photography.Book.now

I sell fish, 2009

JOsHuA DeAner, 34, born in Boston, lives in Providence, Rhode Island. the cover of Joshua’s self-published Blurb book, I sell fish, promises “various findings, images, formulas, memories, desires, poems, obsessions, + lies”. And it doesn’t disappoint. opening with Joshua’s birth certificate and including an assortment of personal documents, handwritten texts, self-portraits, and ephemera, the book also collects a lifetime of photographic projects. the result is a highly eccentric, casually ingratiating autobiography, a portrait of the artist as an (anxious, ambitious, fitfully insightful) young man. Joshua’s photographs are random and tangential in the currently popular mode; it’s hard to know what sort of impact they might have on a gallery wall. But, in this context, they resonate. In one sense, I sell fish is a mystery; although Joshua drops plenty of clues, his life unfolds not as a narrative but as a poem full of dropped lines and intriguing ellipses.

MAriAH rObertsOn, 34, grew up in Sacramento, California, and lives in Brooklyn. At a time when photographers are abandoning the marvelous vagaries of the darkroom for the programmed perfection of their digital printers, Mariah is making big, rambunctious pictures the old-fashioned way. Incorporating contact prints, conventional negatives, photograms, and splashy passages of darkroom chemistry, her images are mash-ups of representation and abstraction that veer deliriously close to chaos. Mariah admits that there’s an element of chance in the work, and her willingness to let accidents happen is exactly what we’ve been missing. Printed on sheets of paper haphazardly cut from large rolls in the dark, her prints are unique records of a series of processes that won’t be duplicated. think May Ray meets Kurt Schwitters over several rounds of absinthe. Cheers!

Area twelve, 2009

siMOn burcH, 45, born in Bangor, Northern Ireland, lives in Dublin. the landscape photographs that open Simon’s book, Under a Grey Sky, are brutally matter-of-fact, in the now classic new topographic style pioneered by artists such as Stephen Shore and Robert Adams. they’re pictures of flat, sooty earth that looks raw and wounded, like it was mugged and left for dead – so drained of color, they appear almost black-and-white. Scraped bare by industrial harvesters, Ireland’s depleted peat bogs are landscapes in limbo, black holes that seem to have sucked the life out of the surrounding communities. Without editorializing, Simon peppers the book with pictures of some of those towns and their citizens, creating a kind of elegiac environmental portrait solidly rooted in the peatland. Like Alec Soth, whose Sleeping by the Mississippi set the standard for this sort of book, Simon balances stylistic restraint with palpable concern, and clear-sightedness with heart.

DietMAr busse, 43, born in Stolzenau, Germany, lives in Manhattan. If Dietmar is more deserves a mention both because he’s remained largely under the radar and because his new work finds him at a moment of vivid, creative reinvention. He’s returned to portraiture, an early love, with renewed passion, a fresh eye, and great wit. Like American photographer Peter Hujar, who remains a strong influence, he works in black and white and Kenny Kenny as Greta Garbo, nyC, 2010

primarily at home, turning one room of his tiny Curry Hill apartment into an efficient working studio. His subjects have included other artists and photographers (David Armstrong, terence Koh, Alice o’Malley) but many more of them are drawn from the population of Downtown performers and personalities whose gender is in flux. Dietmar calls them “starlets” and he regards them with a tenderness and intensity that recalls Diane Arbus. He brings a similar empathy, mixed with amusement, to his portraits of dogs, who look as fabulous as the starlets through his lens.

stePHen irWin, 50, born and lives in Louisville, Kentucky. Because Stephen uses but does not make photographs, he’s an anomaly in this company – even more so when you consider that he works not with photographs themselves but with mechanical reproductions: pages torn from vintage gay porn magazines. His work involves erasing nearly everything from those pages until only a telling gesture – a cupped hand, an open mouth, a probing tongue – remains. the results, suggestive fragments of anatomy isolated in fields of scumbled off-white, straddle drawing and photography with rude nonchalance. Irwin works with magazines printed before the switch to digital reproduction in the mid-1980s because he prefers the “naturalness” of the period’s models, but also because the ink was laid down in layers then, making it easier to rub off. their echoes of Flemish coloring may not be the first thing you notice about Irwin’s erotic images, but his erasures are as elegant as they are raunchy.

Cleo, 2009

YAMini nAYAr, 34, grew up in Detroit, lives in Brooklyn. Like a number of contemporary photographers (thomas Demand, Anne Hardy and Laurie Simmons, for instance), yamini works in imaginary spaces – places that exist only to be photographed. But the rooms she constructs on table tops in her Brooklyn studio are like interiors in dreams, strangely familiar, even inviting at first, but look around and you’ll see that nothing’s quite right. Half the floorboards are missing and so is the back wall, where an eye is peering through a chink in the void. Metallic curtains billow in a wallpapered room where a twist of oily black stuff rises like smoke. yamini’s most recent photographs abstract architecture even further, sketching in a space that’s more cerebral than physical – one idea taking shape while another dissolves. these spaces may be imaginary, but you don’t want to leave. ■ 47

object lesson: lot 128 LuSCiouS. DeCADeNT. SeDuCTiVe. Few pieces elicit more pleasure than Marilyn Minter’s photographs. Glamorous, sexy, intoxicating and flatout cool, her work suggests a fantasy pieced from day-to-day reality. Minter’s imagery engages all the senses. in Sparks, a heavily made-up eye in extreme close-up is drenched in glitter. it screams of excess, beauty and sex. Heavily made-up, the eyelid shimmers against the bare skin occupying the rest of the frame. This very excess and messiness is central to Minter. Her 2006 billboards in Chelsea of sky-high heels are redolent of the underbelly of glamour and fashion – the perfection that is so often sought after but so difficult to obtain. Minter says, ‘The sexy underside? Well, that might be inherent in taking things apart because that is where things start to get untidy and messy. So even though the glamour we see in popular culture is so perfect and flat, when it starts to come undone perhaps it gets sexier.’ She captures the eye before the make up has been fully applied or perhaps after, as it begins to melt off. Beads of sweat drip off the faces of models holding pearls and diamonds in their mouths. Dirt smudges the polished feet adorned by expensive shoes. The complete decadence of Sparks is reminiscent of a slightly out-offocus make up ad or an image in a high-fashion magazine. it blurs the boundaries between fine art and commercial art. Minter uses fashion as inspiration and, unsurprisingly, the fashion world is inspired by Minter, often commissioning her for actual photo shoots. Minter’s work explores and comments on consumption, indulgence and glamour.The body parts in her paintings and photographs are surfaces for glitter, paint and jewels. The models in her work sweat, they have smeared makeup, they lick jewels. every Minter work seduces the viewer and transcends the heightened reality of beauty, fashion and society. Marilyn Minter’s work is fresh. Her photographs inform her painting (she often uses several different photographs for one painting) yet while her photos aren’t altered or manipulated, her paintings are the result of layer upon layer of enamel paint, often smudged and blurred with her bare fingers. Minter’s pieces observe the overabundance of our society but also its flaws – creating pieces that both critique contemporary culture and restyle it. And what could be more NoW than that? n

Man Ray’s extreme close-up in Tears recalls a still from a silent film. By placing glass beads on a mannequin’s face, the artist aestheticizes emotion through artifice.

In 2006, Minter’s hyperrealist photographs towered over Chelsea, NYC on large billboards. Blurring the line between fashion and commercial photography, these works displayed her fascination with grit coexisting with glamour.

Andy Warhol’s color blocking in his Marilyn series brought together celebrity photography and pop art. His extravagant color choices bring to mind both gaudy make-up and industrial painting

Minter’s darkly erotic works, like her film for Creative Time's installation in Times Square, use extreme close-up to focus on feet, eyes and mouths – the body-parts most associated with make-up and fetish.

While Futurologia reveals Malevich’s influence on contemporary artists, Russian Utopias charts the evolution of Utopia in works, such as Igor Makarevich and Elena Elagina’s tribute to Tatlin’s monument, Mushrooms of Russian Avant-Garde (2008), pictured, that form a bridge between the heroic past of Russian art and some of the nation’s boldest voices today.

J. G. Ballard’s dark yet seductive world view informs Feinkost gallery’s Atrocity Exhibit (March 6 – April 25, 2010), a group show featuring the works of Annika Larsson, Arcangelo Sassolino, and Daniel Baker (whose Bouquet looking glass from 2007 is pictured above). Working in a diverse range of media from painting to automated installations, the artists navigate the thin line between eroticism and violence, responding to the Crash author’s fascination with the extremes of the human condition.

Pop art pioneer Richard Hamilton’s Serpentine Gallery retrospective Modern Moral Matters (March 3 – April 25, 2010) brings us up-to-date with the development of his work. In works such as Swingeing London 67 (f), 1968–69 (above), Hamilton creates a dynamic balance between tough social themes and a poetic approach, focusing on how the mass media shapes the way we perceive and react to world events.

William Kentridge: Five Themes (February 24 – May 17, 2010) at the Museum of Modern Art showcases the artist’s trademark charcoal drawings, such as Drawing for Stereoscope, Untitled, (1998–99) above, and enigmatic films. His animations are meticulously constructed by continuously reshooting charcoal drawings as they are erased and modified. Each successive frame is haunted by echoes of past drawings, creating a perfect analogue for the South African artist’s explorations of apartheid’s aftermath. The exhibit also includes Kentridge’s drafts for his new set design for Shostakovich's opera The Nose at New York's Metropolitan Opera, which is to be staged shortly after the retrospective’s opening.

March promises to be an busy and exciting time in New York with the Armory, Pulse and Volta art fairs opening almost concurrently, and the Whitney Biennial (February 25 – May 30, 2010), curated by Francesco Bonami with Gary Carrion-Murayari. Although Bonami’s 2003 Venice Biennale was notoriously mammoth, his and Carrion-Murayari’s list of artists for the Whitney is notably shorter and more focused than previous editions. At 23, photographer Tam Tran, who produced Battle Cry (2008) pictured above, is the youngest artist in a selection that ranges from the established to the newly emerging.

Contained in a decorative leatherette folio case with embossed credit, title and copyright symbol.

Using the aesthetic of fashion photography to explore the ambiguities of social interaction, Erwin Olaf’s Hope portfolio offers six tableaux that capture heightened moments of stillness and reflection. With the title as a ray of insight into the artist’s intent, these visually stunning scenarios force the viewer to question what preceded and what shall follow each scene, all whilst searching for the ‘hope’ that is lingering within each one. The photographs included in this portfolio are some of Olaf’s most celebrated works and demonstrate his continued interest in artfully articulating the “moment between action and reaction.” (Foster, Aperture, Erwin Olaf, p. 103)

America Swings is Naomi Harris’ five-year exploration into the American subculture of swinging. With her camera in tow, Harris ingratiated herself into communities throughout the country to document a lifestyle of complete sexual freedom. The resulting photographs depict her subjects in a range of activities from the everyday to the extreme and, in doing so, celebrate a group of people who live their lives outside the contemporary stereotypes of community and sexual practice.

I love the obscure and realism. I adore seeing what goes on behind closed doors and love the photographers who are able to get access to really tough situations. Naomi Harris, America Swings: Photographs by Naomi Harris, p. 14

For nearly a century, the American social landscape has been widely explored, dissected and revealed, sometimes with a loving eye, sometimes with a critical eye, but rarely with an objective eye, such as Alec Soth’s, that somehow balances both. Patrick, Palm Sunday, Baton Rouge, Louisiana is part of Soth’s five-year body of work, Sleeping by the Mississippi, in which the famed photographer formed an unassuming cross-section of the demographic diversity running along the river. Layers of strata, rocks, soil and flora are replaced by socio-cultural signifiers such as race, dress, personal space, and as we see in this image, religious practices. The resulting image is not a critique of, nor an homage to the religious ceremony. Rather, it is an understated acknowledgement of its existence—and importance, in creating a revised perception of the kaleidoscopic American panorama.

If one spends time in the shadowy, military end of the Internet, one cannot be left with anything but conflicted feelings. The bewildering beauty of what human ingenuity can achieve when given endless resources collides with the appalling disposal of those assets on new and more brilliant ways to kill people.

Estimate $ 2 , 0 0 0 - 3 , 0 0 0 Like many contemporary Chinese artists whose work is imbued with the cultural history of their nation, Jin Shan’s photographs from the series I’m 27 Years Old, address the iconic events of China’s past through the veil of the artist’s personal history. Superimposing his own image in color atop anonymous black and white photographs, this one depicting the longstanding Chinese tradition of public executions, Jin attempts to open a new dialogue with the past while highlighting the implication of these collective historical events on the individual.

Working in the tradition of landscape photography, Wout Berger’s Ruigoord series depicts a plot of land near Amsterdam that was planted with seedlings to prevent erosion and thus prepare the ground for future urban development. By reducing the landscape to the immediate foreground and focusing on the tiniest weeds and flowers, Berger’s photograph speaks of the environmental impact of urban sprawl and the new role of nature, not as a rival of the city, but as a vehicle for its development. This photograph is unique in this size. The other prints from this edition measure 40 x 50 in. (101.6 x 127 cm).

For me the most provocative tale dealing with the origin of multiple languages is the biblical story of the ‘Tower of Babel’, in which God punishes man for his vanity and grandiosity precisely by violently denying him the ability to understand the languages of others. When I made the ‘Babel Series’ installation in 1999, this violent failure, the failure of language to function as the glue coalescing different cultures (which is still the case now as much as it was then), became a compelling point of reference for me.

Many Key Members of the twentieth-century avant-garde were preoccupied with the possibility of a universal language that might communicate above and beyond the specificity of linguistic and national references…With the ‘Babel Series’ I wanted to make a work that would pay homage to such endeavors while at the same time recognizing the extent to which any notion of pure language has become increasingly hard to maintain…The most primal units of language are regurgitated by the ambassadors of MTV, this being a medium which has succeeded—beyond the wildest dreams of the twentieth-century avant-garde—in forging a language that is accessible to people from vastly different contexts.

“these individual photographs usually function as part of a larger ensemble, being grouped according to subject types and displayed in an overall, non-hierarchical grid pattern. Looked at one at a time, each of them displays in rich detail the idiosyncratic features of a particular aspect of nature. When they are configured as a group, becoming co-dependent, their more formal aspects come to the fore, such as their equality of scale, their generally similar forms and shapes, the overall consistent horizon line that turns the ensemble into a lateral composition of alternating sky-white and earth colors. they thus engage in a continual back-and-forth between individuality and uniformity, expressive subjectivity and purported objectivity. While eliasson’s systematic approach to and serial presentation of his subject matter find clear precedents in the photographs of German bernd and hilla becher, there are differences: where the bechers work in black and white, eliasson uses the inherently less austere medium of color photography, and his subject matter welcomes more eccentric topographic anatomies than the bechers’ industrial series.”

Provenance Keszler Gallery, New York Estimate $ 1 5 , 0 0 0 - 2 0 , 0 0 0 In his series Die Mauer (The Wall), German artist Jens Lorenzen pays a unique homage to the Berlin Wall. The works in this series are meant to give the impression of an actual wall and can be seen either as a unit or as individual elements. The collaged appearance of the works are meant to reflect the paint chipping off the many images that were displayed on the colorful west side of the Berlin Wall (in contrast, the east side was barren, a reflection of the difference between the two societies of Germany). Lorenzen’s use of brand names—in these three paintings, most notably Prince Cigarettes, Ritter Sport and Marlboro—echo Andy Warhol. Much like with Warhol, despite the brands’ internationally recognized names, the importance of Lorenzen’s work lies not just in the images themselves but in the way he chooses to alter and present them. The present lot does not focus solely on consumerism but also includes references to the German version of the American comic series, Prince Valiant (Prinz Eisenherz) and the logo from the British Daily Express. 177

Kevin appel’s new paintings depict a world so fractured that it’s hard to imagine the damage ever being repaired. Psychological trauma and social unrest ripple across the smooth surfaces of his canvases, revealing the artist to be a sharp-eyed realist whose uncompromising work is all the stronger for being metaphorical and suggestive. […] raw anxiety and gut-tightening dread percolate beneath the deceptively antiseptic surfaces of those loaded paintings, suggesting a diabolical alliance between Ludwig Mies van der rohe and the Unabomber. appel’s new paintings […] dive deeper into the potential for violence—both natural and otherwise—that defines a nation gripped by fear and driven by the desire to obliterate terrorism. […] the blunt-force trauma that appel’s paintings make palpable is not the whole story. he crafts his canvases with consummate care and labor-intensive devotion, building their compositions with considerable delicacy, unassuming felicity and formal sophistication. their circle-the-wagons atmosphere attests to a type of go-italone defiance made famous by all types of survivors, both real and mythical.

Consecutive and Responsive Bidding The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may further bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount of the reserve by placing consecutive bids or bids in response to other bidders. 4 AFTER THE AUCTION Payment Buyers are required to pay for purchases immediately following the auction unless other arrangements are agreed with Phillips de Pury & Company in writing in advance of the sale. Payments must be made in US dollars either by cash, check drawn on a US bank or wire transfer, as noted in Paragraph 6 of the Conditions of Sale. It is our corporate policy not to make or accept single or multiple payments in cash or cash equivalents in excess of US$10,000. Credit Cards As a courtesy to clients, Phillips de Pury & Company will accept American Express, Visa and Mastercard to pay for invoices of $10,000 or less. Collection It is our policy to request proof of identity on collection of a lot. A lot will be released to the buyer or the buyer’s authorized representative when Phillips de Pury & Company has received full and cleared payment and we are not owed any other amount by the buyer. Promptly after the auction, we will transfer all lots to our warehouse located at 29-09 37th Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, New York. All purchased lots should be collected at this location during our regular weekday business hours. As a courtesy to clients, we will upon request transfer purchased lots suitable for hand carry back to our premises at 450 West 15th Street, New York, New York for collection within 30 days following the date of the auction. We will levy removal, interest, storage and handling charges on uncollected lots. Loss or Damage Buyers are reminded that Phillips de Pury & Company accepts liability for loss or damage to lots for a maximum of five days following the auction. Transport and Shipping As a free service for buyers, Phillips de Pury & Company will wrap purchased lots for hand carry only. We will, at the buyer’s expense, either provide packing, handling and shipping services or coordinate with shipping agents instructed by the buyer in order to facilitate such services for property purchased at Phillips de Pury & Company. Please refer to Paragraph 7 of the Conditions of Sale for more information. Export and Import Licenses Before bidding for any property, prospective bidders are advised to make independent inquiries as to whether a license is required to export the property from the United States or to import it into another country. It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to comply with all import and export laws and to obtain any necessary licenses or permits. The denial of any required license or permit or any delay in obtaining such documentation will not justify the cancellation of the sale or any delay in making full payment for the lot. Endangered Species Items made of or incorporating plant or animal material, such as coral, crocodile, ivory, whalebone, rhinoceros horn or tortoiseshell, irrespective of age, percentage or value, may require a license or certificate prior to exportation and additional licenses or certificates upon importation to any foreign country. Please note that the ability to obtain an export license or certificate does not ensure the ability to obtain an import license or certificate in another country, and vice versa. We suggest that prospective bidders check with their own government regarding wildlife import requirements prior to placing a bid. It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to obtain any necessary export or import licenses or certificates as well as any other required documentation. The denial of any required license or certificate or any delay in obtaining such documentation will not justify the cancellation of the sale or any delay in making full payment for the lot.
