Carl Andre: QuincyCarl Andre: Quincy

Published by Primary Information.

In a 1973 interview, Minimalist sculptor and poet Carl Andre (born 1935) proclaimed: "I am a native son of Quincy, Massachusetts, proud of the town whether the town is proud of me or not." In lieu of an exhibition catalogue for his 1973 solo show at the Addison Gallery, Andre hired a commercial photographer to document landscapes from his hometown. Taken in the winter of that year, the resulting images of Quincy’s snow-covered headstones and monuments were composed into this artist’s book (the wry cover image is of a locally quarried headstone reading "Andre"). The stark black-and-white photographs focus on the industrial, working-class side of the city--the shipyard, railroad tracks, cranes and granite quarries--as well as on the creeks and dirt roads of its desolate wooded outskirts. An unusual work within Andre’s oeuvre, this artist’s book hints at the origins of his sculptural aesthetic.

Carl AndreCarl Andre

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Roland Mönig, Letizia Ragaglia, Guido de Ward.

Carl Andre (born 1935) stands alongside Sol LeWitt and Donald Judd as a founding father of American Minimalism. Since the early 1960s, he has transformed the popular understanding of sculpture, opening up the works to public interaction and everyday experience. This catalogue is the first comprehensive publication on Andre since 1996, and therefore provides the most complete overview to date. It reproduces a selection of Andre’s early Concrete poems, made between 1961 and 1968, linking them to his sculptural methods in their mutual aim to cut, stack and arrange discrete elements. Several sculptures are reproduced here for the first time, from early works such as “Convex Pyramid” (1959) to several works from the early 2000s that revisit this fledgling piece, as well as numerous examples of Andre’s famous floor sculptures from 1969 to 2010. Concise, thorough and sleek in design, it provides a fresh revisioning of this major artist.

Carl André: Glarus 1993-2004Carl André: Glarus 1993-2004

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essay by Eva Meyer-Hermann.

When this beautiful catalog was first proposed, I rashly promised to write a dedicatory poem for it. But when I saw the first proof pages, it dawned on me that all the works which Elsbeth and Ruedi had made possible for me to create are in themselves an ongoing poem which I could never surpass. So writes Carl Andre of his work in Glarus, a Swiss mountain town.
