OP SIMON EVANS. Ed. by Elodie Evers. Kerber Verlag, Bielefeld, 2014. Kerber Art. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 176 pp. with 120 ills. (119 col.). 30 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783866788909 In English.
Publisher's description: Working with maps, plans and words, realized in works on paper and in sculptural forms such as globes and pyramids, London-born, Brooklyn-based artist Simon Evans (born 1972) painstakingly diagrams everyday concerns such as drugs, advice, loneliness and all manner of everyday phenomena and personal experience. Evans' works, with their laboriously hand-lettered, densely layered texts, offer what Jens Hoffmann calls, in his essay for this volume, "lucid combinations of explosive minutiae." This monograph is the first comprehensive overview of Evans' unique art--long known only to a relatively small circle of curators and artists--spanning works made over the past 15 years. It examines Evans' collage technique, his diaristic notes and mapping strategies as well as the influence of literature on his art, and includes essays by Will Self, Jens Hoffmann, Anders Kold and Elodie Evers, a poem by Dana Ward and an interview with the artist by Jacob Fabricius.
