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'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.
