Seven Films by Paul SietsemaSeven Films by Paul Sietsema

Published by Mousse Publishing.
Edited with text by Nora Burnett Abrams. Text by Michael Ned Holte, Sarah Robaio Sheridan.

Los Angeles–based artist Paul Sietsema (born 1968) compounds organic and artificial detritus in his artwork. Using photographs and other objects that reference specific bodies of knowledge as starting points for his carefully crafted drawings and sculptures, he then films these images and objects, arranging and comparing both the physical works and the ideas, information and knowledge associated with them. Through his multistep, multimedia approach, Sietsema explores what it means to make art today, amid the barrage of images and the telescoping of past, present and future that instant access to information seems to provide. His film projects are both a consideration of time and how we apprehend it and an effort to return significance to the activity of image-making in an age of digital immediacy. This slim, clothbound hardcover is the first publication on Sietsema's film works, and includes stills from seven films accompanied by three curatorial essays.

Published by Wexner Center for the Arts, The Ohio State University.
Edited by Christopher Bedford. Foreword by Sherri Geldin. Text by George Baker, Christopher Bedford, Bill Horrigan, Suzanne Hudson.

The work of Paul Sietsema (born 1968) might be described as a sequence of multimedia suites, each of which begins with a phase of intensive research into historical–political themes, and which results in a body of interrelated sculptures, photographs, drawings, collages and films that propose an “exploded” model of historical progress. In general, these suites, such as Empire (2003) and Figure 3 (2008), have been discussed and exhibited individually. This publication, by contrast, brings together major elements from projects of the past decade, along with new works, which are being facilitated by the support of a Wexner Center Artist Residency Award in visual arts. The publication, like the exhibition it accompanies, is the most comprehensive survey of Sietsema’s work to date. It includes his most recent sequence, Chinese Box, done through the support of the Wexner Artist Residency Award.

Paul Sietsema: Figure 3Paul Sietsema: Figure 3

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Connie Butler.

Paul Sietsema's ethereal drawings, sculptures and films explore combinations of color, space and movement through subjects spanning a broad geographic and temporal range. For his third and newest project, Figure 3 (2008), Sietsema takes as his inspiration a collection of indigenous ethnographic objects--found in various locations, including Africa, Indo-Asia and the South Pacific region of Oceania prior to European colonization--which he has collected since 2001. He reimagines these objects through drawings and intricately detailed, handcrafted sculptures, then captures the sculptures on 16mm film. The end result is a flickering, mostly black-and-white moving image that slips between abstract and figurative representation. This volume presents for the first time a comprehensive overview of the films and related objects, which together explore ideas of cultural production and the relationships between drawings, materiality and film.
