Never a dull moment in ‘Alex Da Corte: Mr. Remember’

Featured spreads are from one of the more energizing new releases this week: Alex Da Corte: Mr. Remember, published on the occasion of the shape-shifting artist’s major recent retrospective at Denmark’s Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Eye-popping color, uninhibited humor and a sense of playful, therapeutic inquiry combine inside this 320-page clothbound hardcover, foil stamped on the cover with a paperback supplement sewn into what’s already a very generous book. Many excellent texts round out the volume, including several chunks of interviews with the artist. “The need to dress ourselves up is something common like the need to eat,” he says to Louisiana curator Mathias Ussing Seeberg in one. “There’s a shared blank canvas that we all have in some capacity and when you start adding on things, be it a certain diet or a particular hat, you start changing that canvas. And you can start playing with that. And granted, day-to-day, most people don’t change that game. But they can. And then you understand—as everyone’s shaped differently—what that projection of oneself should be, and you notice it in others. You start wondering whether you have been costumed yourself. Who is reading me, and how am I being read? And how am I reading others? And when you understand that it is just a fresh coat of paint on an old house, you realize you can change. This is a way to say that one can be untethered, if one wants.”
