THE GIVERNY POLAROIDS: DARREN ALMOND. {Title from spine}. Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft mbH, Koln, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 64 pp. with 32 col. ills. 24 x 19 cm. ISBN 9783864420443 In English.
Entirely pictorial. Publisher's description: Noted British artist and Turner Prize-nominee Darren Almond has developed an extraordinary practice of creating mesmerizing photographs captured under the light of the full moon. After his 2012 exhibition at the Villa Merkel and the resulting video Nocturne, Almond created this stunning artist book that showcases his moonlit Polaroid images of Claude Monet's iconic garden. "Except for painting and gardening," Monet once wrote to a friend, "I'm useless." In 1883, the Impressionist painter left his life in Paris for the idyllic natural splendor of Giverny, where he created his famous water lily pond and Japanese bridge. Those very flowers become the sculptural motifs for Almond's ethereal new work. To produce a more sculptural experience, each image is tipped-in to the page, along with a clear plastic cover wrapping constructed to hold a small picture of the famous lily pond.
