Ingvar Cronhammer biography out now

Ingvar Cronhammer's biography 'Med Gud i den ene hånd og tvivlen i den anden · Et roadtrip med Ingvar Cronhammer' by Kirsten Jacobsen, published by Politikens Forlag is out now.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
--⁠⠀
⁠⠀
'Den første biografi om og med en af Danmarks mest prisbelønnede og anerkendte kunstnere.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Siden august 2018 har billedhuggeren Ingvar Cronhammar – i sol og regn, mørke og sne – kørt Danmark rundt i sin Audi Q5 sammen med forfatter Kirsten Jacobsen. Undervejs har de talt om hans kraftfulde kunstværker i det offentlige rum – fra Gråsten til Skagen, fra Herning til Rosenhaven ved Fredensborg Slot og det imponerende monumentområde ved Jelling.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
De har kørt gennem landsbyer, hvor rækker af tilgroede, forladte huse i dag – med Cronhammars ord – ”står som halvkvalte skrig og med vinduernes tomme øjne” og gennem svimlende smukke hedestrækninger, hvor kunstneren bliver utilpas ved vindmøllernes skalering i forhold til landskabets naturlige fikspunkter. De har siddet i middelalderkirker og talt om Cronhammars religiøse anfægtelser og det, han kalder sine anelser (læs: inspiration), der kan opstå ud af intet. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Ingvar Cronhammar søger håbet og lyset, men tumler med troen, tvivlen og mørket. Han er svær at overse i det offentlige rum og i kunstcirklerne; men han er normalt meget tilbageholdende og privat. På disse roadtrips og i sit hjem uden for Herning fortæller han for første gang om sig selv og de – hidtil ukendte – barske sider af sin opvækst, der har sat sit aftryk på hans livssyn og kunstværker' - Politikens Forlag⁠

Carlos Amorales new book 'The Factory'

Carlos Amorales – The Factory is the first European retrospective exhibition by multidisciplinary artist Carlos Amorales. It showcases the work of one of Mexico’s most important contemporary artists from the 1990s to the present day.

Carlos Amorales made an extraordinary artist book that accompanies the exhibition, together with the Amsterdam-based designers Mevis & Van Deursen. Amorales collaborated with Mevis & Van Deursen in 2000 on his first book Los Amorales, which is now a collector’s item.

By plunging into the depths of a single silhouette taken from Carlos Amorales’s Liquid Archive, letting it run amok and infinitely transform, this highly original artist book coaxes a disturbing understanding of both Carlos Amorales’s recent practice and the perversions of our time.

Including an enlightening manifesto by the artist and a new, enthralling text by author Reinaldo Laddaga, embedded in interweaving and overlapping layers of comic-book-like frames designed by Elsa-Louise Manceaux.

Shot on film, the portraits in Hairdos of Defiance track this ubiquitous expression of individuality on friends and strangers.

In the accompanying essay On Mohawks, Templeton reflects on the evolution of the mohawk, from its origins in indigenous culture to its emergence as a punk identifier, to its co-option by the mainstream, to its significance in his own life as an outsider kid growing up in suburbia.

This hardcover book features 62 photographs, printed in an edition of 1,500. Hairdos of Defianceserves as the catalogue for Templeton’s eponymous solo exhibition at Roberts Projects, Los Angeles, on view March 17 - April 21, 2018.' - Deadbeat Club.
