MARIANNE VITALE: OH DON'T ASK WHY. Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin, 2015. Published by Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft mbH, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 64 pp. 31 x 23 cm. ISBN 9783864421273 In English.
Publisher's description: The recent work of New York-based artist Marianne Vitale (b.1973) and a very smart interview between the artist and artist Mauricio Cattelan make this slender but oversized exhibition catalog from CFA, Berlin, a compelling snapshot of Vitale's work. A selection of totemic steel sculptures (some installed in New York on the Highline), a large-scale installation comprised of a saloon bar facing shelves of emotionally evocative papier māche masks and a series of textured wall pieces made with reclaimed wood and old tar roofs were all inspired by the artist's current interest in America's frontier history. Vitale first came to wide attention through her performances in RoseLee Goldberg's Performa 07 and 09 and was included in the 2010 Whitney Biennial. Recently she has tapped into the anxieties surrounding America's frontier history with sculptural pieces that invoke the deep hunger for autonomy and freedom that drove the ruthless expansion.
