Guy de Cointet: Tempo Rubato

Published by Fundación/Colección Jumex
Foreword by Patrick Charpenel. Text by Magalí Arriola, Jay Sanders, Marie de Brugerolle.

The installations, books, films and plays of Guy de Cointet (1934–1983) offer conceptually playful and witty treatments of codes, ciphers and optical tensions between language and image. Born in France and based in Los Angeles from 1965 until his death, de Cointet was also an important mentor as a teacher at the Otis Art Institute for a generation of Californian artists, including Paul McCarthy and Mike Kelley. Long esteemed by artists and critics but little exhibited until recently, his work has been the subject of considerable renewed interest over the past decade or so. This volume, published for a 2012/13 survey show at Fundación/Colección Jumex in Mexico, includes extensive documentation (playscripts, photographs) of his plays Tempo Rubato, IGLU and Tell Me, alongside relevant works on paper, archival photographs and essays by Magalí Arriola, Jay Sanders and Marie de Brugerolle.

Guy de Cointet: Tempo RubatoFeatured image, of Kristor Hokanson, Guy de Cointet, Berit Hokanson and Manuel Fuentes reading/performing Cointet's TSNX C24VA7ME, A Play in 4 Acts by Marc Hun in 1974, is reproduced from Guy de Cointet: Tempo Rubato, published by Fundación/Colección Jumex. Essayist Magalí Arriola writes, "This work (also known as the red book) was written based on a random association of numbers and letters that, as Marie de Brugerolle states, 'in theory (...) is meaningless, yet it takes on meaning once it is read aloud, acted, performed,' the result being a series of inscrutable dialogues." continue to blog
