OLAF NICOLAI/HEIDI SPECKER: LE PIGMENT DE LA LUMIERE. {Title from cover.} Spector Books, Leipzig, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 48 pp. with 32 ills. (29 col.). 27 x 21 cm. ISBN 9783944669588 Trilingual in German, English and French.
Unopened pages. Publisher's description: A collaboration between sculptor Olaf Nicolai (b. 1962) and photographer Heidi Specker (b. 1962), this artist book poetically captures Nicolai's intervention during the reconstruction of the Bauhaus Masters' Houses -- once home to Moholy-Nagy, Kandinsky and Klee, among others -- in Dessau. Coating the walls with marble dust with varying degrees of granulation to create geometrical patterns, Nicolai produced a subtle relief that responds to the homes changing light conditions. Specker in turn gives the camouflaged surfaces a heightened sense of presence through her photographic renderings that direct the viewer's gaze to the interplay of contour, surface, space and light. In Nicolai and Specker's joint publication, an aesthetic intervention in a reconstructed space finds another iteration through the medium of photography in book form. The soft cover and Chinese fold give this elegant artist book and abstract journey through an iconic space a supple, organic feel.
