Tauba Auerbach: ChaosTauba Auerbach: Chaos

Published by Deitch Projects.
Text by Will Bradley, Brian Sholis, Chris Jennings.

Chaos, a new book by artist Tauba Auerbach produced in conjunction with her exhibition Here Now/And Everywhere at New York's Deitch Projects, explores the shadowy gap between order and disorder, pattern and randomness. By linking mathematical philosophy and scientific theory with larger, existential human concerns, Auerbach produces an array of complex conceptual and visual experiments that manifest as a body of striking paintings and photographs, minimalist metaphors of information overload. Evoking the information abyss of visual static, Auerbach's Crease, Crumple, Shatter and Static series investigate the logic and machinery of communication and representation. As they do so, unintended or unexpected effects emerge in conjunction with instances of ambiguity, contradiction, paradox and breakdown. Fully illustrated and beautifully bound, Chaos also constitutes a mini-catalogue raisonné of Auerbach's artist's books and includes new critical essays by Will Bradley, Chris Jennings and Brian Sholis.

Tauba Auerbach: 50/50Tauba Auerbach: 50/50

Published by Deitch Projects.

In her drawings, paintings and artist's books, San Francisco-based Tauba Auerbach investigates the relationship between spoken and written language, focusing especially on those points where the familiar structure begins to break down or slip. She rigorously yet playfully pushes at the boundaries of our comprehension by rearranging and abstracting words and letters. With a razor sharp style that reveals her training as a professional sign painter, Auerbach makes works on panel and paper that are a refreshing spin on the traditions of Conceptual art and Concrete poetry. This volume features her 50/50 series of large-scale drawings, all of which consist of halftone patterns that express the same shade of gray.
Auerbach, who was born in 1981, is represented by Deitch Projects in New York. She graduated from Stanford University, where she studied with Margaret Kilgallen.

Tauba Auerbach: How To Spell the AlphabetTauba Auerbach: How To Spell the Alphabet

Published by Deitch Projects.
Text by Tauba Auerbach.

How arbitrary are the marks, analog and digital, used to express language, and where do they begin to muck it all up? This first book from Tauba Auerbach, Yes and Not Yes features over 20 new paintings and drawings that spring from those questions. They offer an excellent if roundabout answer: while letters are largely arbitrary, they are rich with abstract beauty and conceptual depth. In razor-sharp execution--which reveals her training as a sign painter--Auerbach's works on panel and paper update the abstract conceptual tradition, while retaining its intellectual rigor. Uppercase Insides and Numeral Insides recall Russian Suprematism, and, upon further contemplation, turn out to be just what their titles call them. Works based on signal flags and the Ugaritic Alphabet--an extinct language from Syria, 1300 B.C.--confirm that puzzlement is part of the desired effect here. Where direct exchange between sign and meaning is impossible, the beauty of the symbol comes to the fore.
