Published by Charta.
Essays by Stefano Evangelista, Giampiero Duronio and Mauro Mattia.

Following Diary of a Gaze, Giampiero Duronio and Mauro Mattia turn to a more elusive subject, clouds. They photograph them gathering, expanding, combining, fraying, growing longer and folding in on themselves--emptying and disappearing.

Angela Bulloch: The Space That Time ForgotAngela Bulloch: The Space That Time Forgot

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Helmut Friedel. Text by Matthias Mühling.

Berlin-based Angela Bulloch's installations are inspired by well-known films like Michelangelo Antonioni's Zabriskie Point (1970). This volume focuses on Bulloch's subversion of spatial and temporal expectations, as in her Night Skies series of projections and light installations that show sections of the sky as if from a vantage far from earth.

Tal R: Adieu InteressantTal R: Adieu Interessant

Published by Walther König, Köln.

Collecting recent crafty, collaborative circular and inverse-circular cut-out collage works by the rising Israeli-born Copenhagen artist, this deluxe volume is quite collectible. Uta Grosenick compares the artist's ray formations to violent explosions, "pressure waves that sweep everything before them," as well as gigantic implosions, "swallowed by the monster and spewed out."

Sarah Pickering: Explosions, Fires and Public OrderSarah Pickering: Explosions, Fires and Public Order

Published by Aperture.
Text by Karen Irvine.

UK photographer Sarah Pickering's Explosions, Fires and Public Order is a visually arresting glimpse into the secret world of civil defense. Combining four series, the book begins with Public Order, a project exploring the Metropolitan Police Public Order Training Centre, a simulated urban environment near London where officers rehearse responses to imagined scenarios of civic unrest. The Explosions series documents the tactical use of controlled explosions by the British military, designed to add realistic stress to training exercises and familiarize soldiers with various munitions. Fire Series and Incident, Pickering's most recent series, were produced while she was an artist in residence at the UK Fire Training College. While there, she photographed blazes that were set inside meticulously and elaborately constructed home interiors, as well as the stark, charred remnants of fake urban settings after the scenario fires had been put out. Pickering's projects reflect an aspect of the current zeitgeist: global terrorism matched with omnipresent anxiety. "My work explores the idea of imagined threat and response, and looks at fear and planning for the unexpected, merging fact and fiction, fantasy and reality."

Emily Cheng: Chasing CloudsEmily Cheng: Chasing Clouds

A Decade of Studies

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Introduction by Emily Cheng. Text by Kevin Power, Johnson Chang.

Painter Emily Cheng has been working in the U.S. and Asia for the last 30 years. This immense monograph focuses on 305 drawings that she has made in the last decade, and includes an index that traces her diverse sources: China's Zhou to Qing Dynasties; Renaissance, Baroque and Byzantine art and architecture; Korean, Japanese and Indian cultures; the study of drapery in the West and in Asia, largely through religious figures; and depictions of the arabesque in plants, flowers, trees, clouds and fire in Taoist and Buddhist imagery. This volume includes an introduction by Cheng and essays by curator Chang Tsong-zung and critic Kevin Power. Cheng's work is contextualized within the field of contemporary abstract painting, and the subtle differences between European and Chinese techniques, influences and methodologies in her work are examined in detail.

Cai Guo-Qiang: Light CycleCai Guo-Qiang: Light Cycle

Explosion Project for Central Park

Published by Asia Society/Creative Time.
Essays by Peter Eleey. Foreword by Vishakha Desai and Anne Pasternak. Introduction by Gary Garrels.

Commissioned to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Central Park, Cai's Light Cycle fireworks display lit the New York sky with a circle of explosions on a September night in 2003. This 24-page accordion book documents it all from planning to performance, executed by the famous Grucci fireworks family. Separating the book's hardbound cloth covers reveals a continuous folded sheet with reproductions of Cai's gunpowder drawings (made by burning scant gunpowder on paper) on one side and photographs of the event and text on the other. In an interview, the artist compares his drawings to “love-making” and explains some technical aspects of his displays, such as a computer chip in each explosive shell.

Alexis Rockman: The Weight of AirAlexis Rockman: The Weight of Air

Published by The Rose Art Museum.
Edited by Michael Rush. Text by Helen Molesworth, Brett Litman.

Disturbingly majestic hurricanes, wind-energy fields, tornadoes, landslides, waterspouts, melting glaciers, forest fires and newly mutant species are some of the subjects of Alexis Rockman's deeply hued and intricately crafted works on paper. Surreal and deeply critical of man's destructive relationship to the environment, the primary works collected in this volume, published to accompany Rockman's first major large-scale museum exhibition in the United States, were all made since 2005. With echoes of J.M.W. Turner, Winslow Homer, Charles Burchfield and Rockman's own inimitable realism, the works surge with a power and flow of color that announces a new direction for this remarkable artist, who has been praised as much for his figurative exactitude as for his wildly imaginative take on what is considered the real. Essays are by the Rose Art Museum's Michael Rush and the Harvard University Art Museums' Helen Molesworth; the artist interview is by Brett Littman of The Drawing Center in New York.

Jorge Otero-Pailos: The Ethics of DustJorge Otero-Pailos: The Ethics of Dust

Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Eva Ebersberger. Text by Daniela Zyman, Daniel Birnbaum, Francesca von Habsburg.

In Jorge Otero-Pailos' installations, the act of preservation is freed from its historic investment in stabilizing architecture. In The Ethics of Dust, he employs the cutting edge of conservation science to probe cultural, political, ethical and aesthetic definitions of architecture as it intersects with science and psychoanalysis.

Cabinet 35: DustCabinet 35: Dust

Published by Cabinet.
Edited by Sina Najafi. Text by Valerie Smith, Steven Connor, Jeff Dolven, Margaret Wertheim.

Dust is everywhere, a perennial presence in the corners of culture. Dust can be deathly (domestic dust is mostly desiccated human skin), deadly (poisonous dust is the product of industry and war) or beautiful (the dusty matte surface of make-up, a light dusting applied by the confectioner, glittering motes caught in a sunbeam). In British English, "dust" is another name for dirt, or matter in the wrong place, implying that it can be moved from one spot to another, but never--as with matter or metaphor--completely eradicated. Cabinet 35 examines dust's ubiquity. Features include Steven Connor on the manifold forms and patterns of magic dust; Brian Dillon on Proust's vacuum cleaner; and Valerie Smith and Matt Mullican on marble dust drawings. Elsewhere in the issue, Steve Reinke catalogues untimely deaths; Helen Polson muses over the fate of lost teeth; Jeff Dolven reviews Conlon Nancarrow's compositions for musical machines; and Margaret Wertheim takes on the mathematical structure known as E8.
