Anish Kapoor: SketchbookAnish Kapoor: Sketchbook

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Marie-Laure Bernadac.

British sculptor Anish Kapoor reveals another facet of his diverse abilities with this beautiful accordion-fold artist’s book reproducing ten previously unpublished gouache paintings. Murkily sensual and full of swelling, luminous contrast between dark and light areas, these mostly abstract paintings were executed on the double pages of an accordion notebook in January 2011. Occupying a palette of blacks and grays, with occasional intrusions from glowing oranges and purples at the page’s edge, these works evoke the interplay of recess and protrusion that so famously characterizes Kapoor’s sculpture. As daily acts of meditation, they can be said to have as their primary subject the artist’s subconscious: “what I’m trying to do is paint the interior, my interior,” he says. This volume is perhaps the most exquisite manifestation of Kapoor’s intent to date.

William Kentridge: Carnets D'EgypteWilliam Kentridge: Carnets D'Egypte

Published by Éditions Dilecta/Éditions du Musée du Louvre.
Text by William Kentridge. Afterword by Marie-Laure Bernadac.

Carnets D'Egypte is William Kentridge's multimedia excavation of one of his favorite subjects: ancient Egypt. "Egypt has to be both believed and disbelieved at the same time," he proposes, explaining his attraction to its intermingling of myth and history in the era of the pharaohs; here, he approaches this intermingling, and attendant questions of orientalism, in works that draw on western traditions of depicting Egypt, by such artists as Carracci, Delacroix, Le Brun, Poussin and Degas. In a scrapbook dossier composed of charcoal and pen-and-ink drawings, collages, animated films and performance pieces, Kentridge investigates such mythically proportioned Egyptian roles as the scribe, the architect and the artist, often inserting himself into the dialogue as a visible presence. This beautifully made book, which includes a DVD with three films, affirms Kentridge at his eclectic and erudite best.

Picasso: The Monograph, 1881-1973Picasso: The Monograph, 1881-1973

Published by Poligrafa.
Edited by Marie-Laure Bernadac, Brigitte Léal, Christine Piot.

Nearly a decade after its initial publication, Picasso: The Monograph 1881-1973 is back in print, updated and redesigned in a more user-friendly format. Poligrafa's brand new edition of this classic volume offers more than 1,200 newly scanned reproductions, spanning Picasso's entire career and illustrating his breathtaking range of artistic expression, including paintings, drawings, lithographs, ceramics and sculpture. Elegantly translated from the original French, the monograph weaves biographical details with thorough elucidations of the artist's work into a concise and seamless narrative. All three contributors are highly regarded in Picasso scholarship: Brigitte Léal and Marie-Laure Bernadac, both former curators of the Musée Picasso in Paris, are now respectively curators of the Centre Pompidou and the Louvre Museum, while Christine Piot co-authored the catalogue raisonné of Picasso's sculpture. Leal covers Picasso's formative years through 1916, including his co-invention of Cubism with Georges Braque. Piot focuses on the artist's glory years from 1917 through 1952, and Bernadac discusses the vigor of Picasso's later years, from 1953 until his death in 1973. With clearly organized visual sources, acknowledgements of leading art historians' interpretations and quotes from Picasso's contemporaries, this book remains unsurpassed as the definitive Picasso monograph for students and art lovers alike.

Annette Messager: Word for WordAnnette Messager: Word for Word

Published by D.A.P./Les Presses du Reel.
Edited by Marie-Laure Bernadac. Interviews with Harald Szeemann, Robert Storr, Bernard Marcadé and Suzanne Pagé.

Texts and words are of crucial importance to Annette Messager's work--for her, "words are images." And so words--at once autonomous from, parallel to, and the sources of her visual creativity--are woven throughout her production. She has looked directly at our diverse relationships to language in forms ranging from the early scrapbooks of the 1970s to the large sculpted words of the late 1990s, and others including personal diaries, letters, calligraphy, alphabets and primers. She works with the repeated, drawn, framed and sculpted word; newsprint, collage and montage of texts and photographs; and handwritten texts. Plays on words and palindromes turn up in her exhibition titles and, more recently, in her children's books. All of these uses of language stem as much from Dada and Surrealism as from the aesthetics of the banal and the everyday, and they give rise to unclassifiable texts, which call somewhere between a literature of the news item or photo-essay and poetic maxims for personal use. Messager's frequent recourse to copying down and to repetition then serves as a kind of exorcism: in those cases, writing is something like sewing, with a soothing function. The first section of Word for Word focuses on writing in Annette Messager's artworks. The second includes numerous texts published in magazines or catalogues, as well as unpublished notes on her work and personal reflections on art and life. All of her interviews from 1974 to the present are also included.
