The Black Garden

Reflection and self-awareness: Günther Wizemann’s impressive Black Garden series.
With essays by Giorgia von Albertini and Florian Vetsch
1st edition, 2017, Text English and German, Hardback, 158 pages,
75 color and 1 b/w illustrations, 20 x 27 cm, ISBN 978-3-85881-550-7

Günther Wizemann’s series The Black Garden comprises forty-three paintings created between 2003 and 2017. Strongly influenced by the Russian modernists Kazimir Malevich and Aleksander Rodchenko, Wizemann has long mulled the question of what one could possibly paint in the aftermath of the modernists. Italian artist Mario Merz’s statement-making installation, Che Fare?, which sought to push the boundaries of art beyond traditional painting and sculpture, has been equally influential on Wizemann’s practice. The Black Garden was created as a possible response to these questions.
Price: CHF 49.–
The catalogue can be purchased at Scheidegger & Spiess, Zurich,or at Galerie Mark Müller.

“When, after dismantling an exhibition of my almost 30-year-old bodies of acrylic paint, I add new paint to them in the studio or cut them up to create new colour combinations, when I include soup bones collected over the past 20 years and newspaper clippings of maps showing conflict zones, then I see that as a gesture of repetition and transposition, as a nod to a place and as a reflection of the phenomenon of time.”

Four Honest Outlaws – Sala Ray Marioni Gordon

published by Michael Fried for the Yale University Press
In this strongly argued and characteristically original book, Michael Fried considers the work of four contemporary artists: video artist and photographer Anri Sala, sculptor Charles Ray, painter Joseph Marioni, and video artist and intervener in movies Douglas Gordon.
«Four Honest Outlaws» takes its title from a line in a Bob Dylan song, «To live outside the law you must be honest», meaning in this case that each of the four artists has found his own unsanctioned path to extraordinary accomplishment, in part by defying the ordinary norms and expectations of the contemporary art world.
Michael Fried will moderate a symposium «PAINTING NOW: A discussion taking off from the work of Joseph Marioni»,
The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC (USA), December 10, 2011
