JENNI TISCHER: PIN. Manuale Ammer. Museum moderner Kunst Wien, 2015. Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin, in association with Fogo Island Arts. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 64pp pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783956791116 Bilingual in English and German.
Publisher's description: Emerging Berlin artist Jenni Tischer's work weaves an unlikely bond between minimalist sculpture and the frayed, human history of textile work. Vividly conveyed in this compact beautifully illustrated exhibition catalog accompanying her survey show at Mumok, Vienna (2014)--the result of winning the Art Basel 2013 Baloise art prize--Tischer's installations blur the boundary between display and artwork: walls and floor interlock, open cubes intertwine with "Viennese netting" recalling Thonet chairs, architectural objects allude to looms and pin cushions. Tischer ponders the impact of the anachronistic practice of weaving: How is human labor inscribed into its materials and surfaces? Why are textiles gaining momentum in the digital age? Between "pins" (needles) and PINs (personal identification numbers), Tischer considers the memory of materials and the digital encoding of identities, staking out a space for the human in a polished design world. Essays by curator Manuela Ammer, critic Ines Kleesattel, art historian Karola Kraus and artist Barbara Kapusta.
