Kaari Upson: 2000 WordsKaari Upson: 2000 Words

Published by DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art.
Edited by Karen Marta, Massimiliano Gioni. Text by Ali Subotnick.

For Los Angeles–based sculptor, painter, filmmaker and installation artist Kaari Upson (born 1972), possessions are the gateway into the human psyche.

Contained within them are all the hopes, dreams, fears and desires of their owners. Like a shaman, Upson creates her own gateways, using unorthodox techniques to imbue everyday objects such as mattresses and bags with an arcane magic. The result is auratic works that act as powerful symbols of absence, failed aspirations and loneliness.

Part of the 2000 Words series conceived by Massimiliano Gioni and published by DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art, this monograph contains an essay by Ali Subotnick that examines Upson’s pseudoscientific approach to her art that allows her to create confounding work that is simultaneously familiar and foreign.

Kaari Upson: Good Thing You Are Not AloneKaari Upson: Good Thing You Are Not Alone

Published by New Museum.
Edited with text by Margot Norton. Text by Jim Shaw. Interview by Paul McCarthy.

Encompassing drawing, painting, sculpture and video, Kaari Upson’s (born 1972) works track open-ended, circuitous narratives that weave elements of fantasy, physical and psychological trauma, and the often-fraught pursuit of an American ideal.

For The Larry Project (2005–ongoing), she unearthed a well of projected histories, images and artifacts inspired by forgotten fragments from the abandoned personal archive of a man whom she had never met. Upson has continued this forensic approach in subsequent projects. This catalog accompanying her New Museum exhibition features an interview with the artist by Paul McCarthy, a new essay by curator Margot Norton and a text by artist Jim Shaw. It also debuts her newest series, centering around a family living in a Las Vegas tract house.

Kaari Upson: The HouseKaari Upson: The House

Published by UCCA/Koenig Books.
Edited by Karen Marta, Brian Roettinger.

For her first artist book, Kaari Upson (born 1972) took an amalgamation of source materials, automatic drawings and sketches, which systematically, through different combinations and organizational systems, manifested itself as a revealing psychosexual graphic novel. Following in the great artist book tradition of John Baldessari and Edward Ruscha, the UCCA has called on Kaari Upson along with LA artists Kathryn Andrews, Aaron Curry, Alex Israel, Matthew Monahan, Sterling Ruby, Ryan Trecartin, and Kaari Upson to make individual artist books for The Los Angeles Project in Beijing.
