Josiah McElheny: Interactions of the Abstract BodyJosiah McElheny: Interactions of the Abstract Body

Published by White Cube.
Edited by Honey Luard. Text by Ulrich Lehmann.

Exploring how the constantly shifting forms of fashion often reveal the core beliefs and assumptions of any given era, Josiah McElheny’s two exhibitions at White Cube, Some Thoughts about the Abstract Body and Interactions of the Abstract Body--recorded in this volume--look at how fashions in clothing and modernism intersected and influenced each other. Using examples of artistic clothing and costume design as a starting point to present his own set of models for abstract form today, McElheny investigates the connections between the history of visual abstraction and the clothing created by artists over the past century, whose work proposed a more subjective, less universal experience of abstraction. Recalling his exhibitions from 1999 and 2000, a series of projects about Christian Dior and the creativity of factory workers, this body of work also partly revisits such themes.

Josiah McElheny: Towards a Light ClubJosiah McElheny: Towards a Light Club

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Richard Fletcher, Bill Horrigan, Jeff Preiss, Jason Simon, Rachel Zolf, et al.

Josiah McElheny (born 1966) produces dazzling fabricated glass objects that address such topics as the nature of perception, the narratives of modernism and the origin of the universe. Since 2007 he has produced a series of sculptures and a film inspired by “The Light Club of Batavia,” a 1912 short story by German Expressionist writer Paul Scheerbart. This publication focuses on McElheny’s Light Club works, which investigate the role of glass in utopian ideas about modernist architecture.

Josiah McElheny: Some Pictures of the InfiniteJosiah McElheny: Some Pictures of the Infinite

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Foreword by Helen Molesworth. Text by Maria Gough, Gregg Bordowitz, Moyra Davey, Andrea Geyer, Zoe Leonard, R. H. Quaytman, Amy Sillman, Taylor Walsh. Interview with Doug Ashford, Bill Horrigan, Helen Molesworth.

Josiah McElheny (born 1966) explores representations of time and space through the medium of glass. Some Pictures of the Infinite looks at 15 years of his work and his ongoing investigation of twentieth-century conceptions of infinity and utopia. McElheny combines the methodologies and mathematics of science with the craftsmanship of artisan glassmaking, and translates the imaginings of Jorge Luis Borges, the utopian endeavors of Bruno Taut and Paul Scheerbart, the futuristic thinking of R. Buckminster Fuller and the sculptural sensuality of Isamu Noguchi into a range of kaleidoscopic scale models for the infinite--most notably in his recent collaboration with a cosmologist on Island Universe, an accurate scale model of the Big Bang. This publication includes a range of essays by artists and critics, including Gregg Bordowitz, Moyra Davey, Zoe Leonard, Amy Sillman and others.

Josiah McElheny:A Space for an Island UniverseJosiah McElheny:A Space for an Island Universe

Published by Turner.
Edited by Lynne Cooke, Josiah McElheny.

In his works, the American artist Josiah McElheny questions the legacy of modernity from the standpoint of his practice as a master of glass, starting from the confluence of design, science and art. McElheny studied art at the Rhode Island School of Design, and increased his knowledge of traditional glass manufacturing techniques by studying with such masters as Ronald Wilkin. This book presents "Island Universe," an installation composed of five chromed aluminium and blown glass sculptures. The structures form spheres that depict the grouping of galaxies in the universe and lights symbolizing quasars (the most brilliant objects known to man). The starting point of this work are the chandeliers inside the New York Metropolitan Opera House, designed by Lobmeyr in 1965, the same year in which the first data in support of the Big Bang theory were made public. The work functions as a model of that theory of the origin of the universe.

Published by Centro Galego De Arte Contemporanea/Xunta de Galicia.
Artwork by Josiah McElheny. Edited by Maria do Ceu Baptista. Contributions by Louise Neri, Miguel Fernndez-Cid, Adolf Loos. Text by Jorge Luis Borges, Miwon Kwon, Michael Tarantino.

A master of the art of glassblowing and a practitioner of the complexities of conceptual art, Josiah McElheny stretches and twists the fragile borders between appearance and reality, truth and imagination, tradition and modernity, text and object. From original documents such as the archeological remains of a child's grave, the fashion designs of Venini, and 16th-century frescos, McElheny creates a physical world of glass.
