MANFRED PERNICE: HALDENSLEBEN, BIBETTE HEADLAND, HOTEL HANGELAR. Philipp Kaiser. Museum Ludwig, Cologne, 2017. Published by Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft mbH, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 216 pp. 19 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783864420993 In English.
Due date: January 2017. Publisher's description: Internationally acclaimed German sculptor Manfred Pernice's equivocal constructions lie somewhere between autonomous sculpture and expansive room-size installation. They use as their starting point spaces (industrial plants, canals, high-rises, metro stations or dykes) and vessels (cans or containers), whose forms are defined by their respective functions. When Pernice pieces these forms together into new constellations using plywood and other materials, he produces not only complex structures but also correspondingly dense webs of social and political associations, which draw from the artist's own photographs, drawings and documentation. This artist monograph begins with three large sculptural works exhibited at Museum Ludwig (2007) that become the inspiration for the next decade of works. Facsimile texts, found images and photographs appear throughout his installations as silent guides, resonating with allusions to historical events, literary figures and even political turmoil. Collected by numerous institutions including, MoMA, NY, TATE Modern, LACMA, Hamburger Baanhoff and many more. With an essay by curator and cultural historian Barbara Engelbach.
