The media list of a single Jessica Stockholder installation reads more like a list of things that you might pack last when moving from one place to another: couch cushions, plastic container lids, acrylic and oil paint, shoelaces, hardware, chain, plastic scoop, and toilet plunger. Even though Stockholder is best known for her large-scale, site-specific installations that link colors, forms, lines, and spaces into always surprising relationships, she has managed throughout her career to balance the production of these monumental, multi-dimensional, and theatrical endeavors with self-contained works that reflect a more intimate, human scale. The range of her work is covered here, and is complemented by Giorgio Verzotti and Michel Gauthier's insightful essays.

Working at the interface between sculpture and painting Jessica Stockholder has, over recent years, developed a body of work of international significance. According to essayist Roland W‚spe, "A little Alice in Wonderland is the way you feel in one of Jessica Stockholder's environments." The artist uses cloth, metal grates, pastel flooring, and bright Lego blocks that colorfully translate a room into a bewitching three-dimensional painting one can walk into. This beautifully assembled catalogue documents Stockholder's works created at St. Gallen Art Museum. Extensive texts illuminate the origins of the work, and an extended interview with the artist gives insights into her thinking and achievements.

Through her use of color and assemblage, Jessica Stockholder challenges familiar generic boundaries between painting and sculpture, while de-familiarizing the experience of the exhibition space--not to mention giving the impression of a K-Mart store that's been bulldozed by a group of feminist abstract expressionists. In 1988, Stockholder created the self-contained assemblage Kissing the Wall No. 2 an old-fashion projector screen wrapped in newspaper and plaster that stands like a bad child facing a florescent lamp secured to the wall. This seminal work, from which this exhibition and catalogue take their name, uses the gallery wall as a screen kissed by various objects in what the artist calls “an emotionally charged event.” This work, in which found objects become actors in the drama of space and color, is exemplary of the many objects gathered together for this retrospective look at Stockholder's self-contained assemblages since 1988. Includes an interview with the artist, scholarly essays, an annotated chronology and a detailed exhibition and publication history.

Through the poetic clash of everyday materials, diverse surfaces, pop colors and patterns galore, Jessica Stockholder has achieved an aesthetic that is at once hot pink, wooly, artificial and quilted. Somewhere in between assemblage and painting, her three-dimensional installations and reliefs violently juxtapose the everyday with the strange, the banal with the familiar, opposites with similarities, the artificial with the natural, kitsch with class, glitz with frumpiness. Found objects from flea markets sit atop mass products from department stores, the whole a whirlwind of narrative suggestion and abstract color and form. This volume features documentation of one of Stockholder's temporary installations as well as many reproductions of her studio works and drawings.
