PETER BLUM EDITION, NEW YORK

Matthew Day Jackson: The Tomb, In Search of

Text by Benno Tempel.

This two-volume slipcased publication is produced on the occasion of American artist Matthew Day Jackson’s 2010 exhibitions at Peter Blum’s two New York galleries. The first volume, The Tomb, In Search of, records one of the artist’s most powerful works: a sculpture of eight astronaut pallbearers (rendered from scraps of wood and plastic) carrying a life-size figure enshrined in a glass case, titled “The Tomb.” Based on a fifteenth-century sculpture by Antoine Le Moiturier, “The Tomb” carries echoes of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Day Jackson’s own mortality and Paul Thek’s 1967 “Tomb.” In Search of, the Film is based upon the eponymous 1970s TV series hosted by Leonard Nimoy, which investigated paranormal phenomena. Day Jackson’s video looks at varieties of anthropomorphism in our view of other life forms, the allegories of artists’ journeys and the transmission of history through artifacts.
