Noguchi and Greece, Greece and Noguchi
Objects of Common Interest
Edited by Ananda Pellerin, Objects of Common Interest. Introduction by Objects of Common Interest. Text by Diane Apostolos-Cappadona, Hsiao-Yun Chu, Dakin Hart, Isamu Noguchi, Nicolas Paissios, Jannis Varelas.
A two-volume archival excavation of Noguchi’s enduring relationship with Greece
Noguchi and Greece, Greece and Noguchi examines the relationship between one of the 20th century’s most celebrated artists, Isamu Noguchi (1904–88), and the Mediterranean country he regularly visited for decades through the lens of Objects of Common Interest (OoCI). This two-volume set considers the influence of Greek culture on Noguchi’s work, and the metamorphosing identity he established from engaging with multiple cultures, diverse practitioners and a variety of mediums.
Letters, photographs, sketches and words from the artist himself—some never seen before now—reveal the intimate relationship Noguchi had with Greece. New writings explore the Japanese American interdisciplinarian’s creative community, including futurist Buckminster Fuller and choreographer Martha Graham; while contemporary visual essays reinterpret Noguchi’s enduring legacy across today’s design and art practices.
New texts delve into Noguchi’s fruitful collaborations with his creative community, including futurist architect Buckminster Fuller and choreographer Martha Graham, and reinterprets Noguchi’s enduring legacy across today’s design and art practices. Featured texts provided by Diane Apostolos-Cappadona, Hsiao-Yun Chu, Dakin Hart, Noguchi, Fuller, Jannis Varelas, Dr Nicholas Paissios and Katerina Koskina. Visual responses to OoCI’s work, in conversation with Noguchi’s ever-evolving practice, come from photographers Marco Arguello, Iwan Baan, Yiannis Bournias, Lauren Coleman, Brian W Ferry, Adrianna Glaviano, Brooke Holmes, Naho Kubota, Mathjis Labadie, Jana Romanova, Omar Sator, Matthieu Salvaing and Stefanos Tsakiris.
Noguchi and Greece, Greece and Noguchi is an extension of a research and exhibition project initiated by OoCI with the Noguchi Museum in New York.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS
The book feels like a mirror of their creative process with the first volume focused on research into Noguchi’s work (with dozens of archival photos) and the second on contemporary responses to it.
This slipcased two-volume set collects letters, essays, and travel photographs in an impressionistic presentation that seems only appropriate for this hybrid artist.

Featured spreads are from Noguchi and Greece, Greece and Noguchi, Atelier Éditions and D.A.P.’s gorgeously designed, two-volume archival excavation of the iconic midcentury artist and designer’s decades-long relationship with Greece—as seen through the lens of New York and Athens-based research and design studio, Objects of Common Interest. “Noguchi’s work transcends disciplines; it was viewed, used and experienced as temporary while also being eternal,” OfCI founders Eleni Petaloti & Leonidas Trampoukis write. “He had a unique way of creating the feeling of space through an articulation of works in relation to each other, as described in an interview with renowned journalist Freddy Germanos during one of his trips to Greece: ‘I am interested in space—and the movement of people and objects within space. There is a certain magic to it. It is as if you are inventing an order of things. I believe there is a secret relationship between space, objects and perceptible and imperceptible movements. Every artist working in this field tries to interpret that relationship in his or her own way. It is the composition and balance of those elements that give rise to the essence of drama and—why not?—the essence of life itself.’” continue to blog
