CHRISTOPH WEBER: UNCAST. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 240 pp. 27 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783959050302 In English.
Publisher's description: Viennese conceptual artist Christoph Weber (b. 1974) works in concrete, and in the process (pun intended) mines both its literal and metaphorical properties as it morphs from shapelessness to solidity. In this evocative project, concrete shifts, folds and overturns, slouching and bending, a quality that is echoed in this delicate and hyper-flexible artist book. Uncured concrete's inherent malleability is further explored in an installation echoing Eadweard Muybridge's photographic methods, in which multiple pinhole cameras trained on concrete shapes record their hardening. With the exposures timed to the concrete's curing times, the concrete is further stilled, photographically. A thoughtful essay by Duscha and Weber explores the analogies between uncured concrete and low-tech photography. Additional essays by sociologist and art historian Jens Kastner, philosopher Sadie Plant, artist Fiona Liewehr and Museum St. Gallen Kunst curator Konrad Bitterli discuss this intelligent, compelling artist's ideas, practice and projects.
