OP CATALOGUE: AMIE SIEGEL. Ed. by Prem Krishnamurthy. Inventory Press, New York, 2014. Distributed by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 320 pp. with 161 col. ills. 33 x 25 cm. ISBN 9781941753033 In English.
This book was published in association with a 2014, two-part exhibition titled "Amie Siegel: Provenance," which was shown simultanously at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and at the University of Michigan Museum of Art in Ann Arbor, but it does not specifically document either show. Publisher's description: American artist Amie Siegel's Catalogue is a publication that poses as and functions like an artist's book, but is in fact is a compilation of scanned auction catalog images of 1950s furniture designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret for Chandigarh, India. Part of her recent three-part exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum and subject of her film Provenance (2013), the trading of the furniture in these sumptuous spreads charts the migration of the spoils of modern design and larger movements of capital. Working between film, installation, photography and performance, Amie Siegel questions the tropes of cinematic form and in this project strips back the layers of patrimony that influence the cultural and market value of objects.
