MICHAEL TEDJA: AQUAHOLISM. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 442 pp. 31 x 24 cm. ISBN 9783956791109 In English.
Publisher's description: his artist's book came about through Tedja's inclusion in the recent Stedelijk exhibition How Far How Near exploring recent acquisitions of African-based artists along with domestic and international works already in the collection. Part exhibition catalog, artistic treatise, poetry collection, visual essay and artist's book, Aquaholism is a polyphonic collage of text and image comprising over 17 years of Michael Tedja's drawing, painting, sculpture and curatorial work. "Aquaholism" is the act of collecting these fragments, and the collector, the "Aquaholist," scrutinizes discoveries in a transparent and closed aquarium--a space whose contents remain in motion. By presenting the artist as an active linguist who translates form and text from studio to exhibition to public spaces, Tedja opens up established systems of sociopolitics, identification and aesthetics and his works live beyond their initial conception. Contributions by Nav Haq, Martijn van Nieuwenhuyzen and an artist interview by Robert van Altena.
