Diaries & Dreams

Published by JRP|Ringier/Ursula Blickle Stiftung

The 15 artists presented here all draw on dreams: They believe that drawing, a diaristic impulse to capture the ephemeral (and not to care if it is ephemeral) plays an important role in the formulation of subconscious wishes, in coaxing out conflicts, in documenting private worlds. For them, the act of drawing can be abstract and meditative, as when Louise Bourgeois creates a penciled web: or narratively meditative on art historical conventions, as in Andrea Fogli's undetailed but elegant portrayal of mourning at the Cross: or wildly inclusive, as in the kitchen-sink, notebook-page text and figures of Marcel Dzama. As both a staging place from which to launch more ambitious works or a end in itself, drawing allows oneiric visions to acquire a measure of concreteness, to communicate to others what is most intimately individual. This comprehensive catalogue, accompanying an exhibition exclusively held at the Ursula Blickle Foundation in Kraichtal, Germany, presents15-page collections of images (225 total) by the artists; an introduction by Peter Weiermair, director of the Galleria d'Arte Moderna in Bologna, Italy; and detailed biographies and bibliographies. Other artists featured include Conrad Botes, Marlene Dumas, Takehito Koganezawa, Ulrike Lienbacher, Bas Meerman, Bjarne Melgaard, Franz Málk, Katrin Plavcak, Jim Shaw, Astrid Stricker, and Michael Ziegler. As Michael Kimmelman of The New York Times recently wrote: "Drawing is the new painting," and here, the formal repertoire of the skilled draftsman gets a full range of exposure.
