INGRID CALAME: BEING BORN. Ed. by Jochen Kienbaum. Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft mbH, Cologne, 2016. Kienbaum Artists' Books. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 96 pp. with 53 col. ills. 33 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783864421594 In English.
Publisher's description: New from the Kienbaum Artists' Book series -- Los Angeles-based artist Ingrid Calame's (b. 1965) monograph Being Born pairs immensely personal birth memories with colorful, ethereal frottages. Calame made the frottages -- a surrealist technique of creating images by rubbing over an uneven surface -- in 2014 in La Coste, France. Created using pigment on Mylar, the shadowy and ethereal color-saturated works seem to direct our gaze from the inside out, echoing the almost mythical and sometimes humorous, always intimate, birth stories. Indefinable traces and bumps appear in some of the images, grooves and metal ridges in others. Internationally known for her abstract, map-like paintings inspired by human detritus, Ingrid Calame's works are included in permanent collections of museums worldwide including MOCA, LA, and the Kunstmuseum of St. Gallen, Switzerland. Calame was also included in the 2000 Whitney Biennial.
