DAVIDE CASCIO & CHRISTIAN KATHRINER: TRANSPOSITION. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 96 pp. 35 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783944669410 In English.
Publisher's description: Paris-based artists Davide Cascio and Christian Kathriner's 2009 installation involving the legendary Santa Casa -- the house in which Mary received the Angel of Annunciation -- is the subject of this elegantly designed, oversized soft-cover book. Color details and installation shots of the massive tapestries they designed and installed in the middle of the opulent baroque pilgrimage chapel of Our Lady of Hergiswald (a replica of the Santa Casa in Loreto), are interspersed with texts on their process, a discussion on the theory of images, Santa Casa stories and a history of the chapel. Their dramatic brightly colored tapestries reproduced as double-page gate-fold show people at the edge of a riverbed in various states of unease, a contemporary moment couched in the materials of the past that both absorbs and refracts the chapel. Contributors include theorist Jorg H. Gleiter, art historians Stanislaus von Moos and Robert Suckale plus artist Birgit Szepanski.
