HEIDI SPECKER: RE-PRISE -- 110 PHOTOS DE HEIDI SPECKER. Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, 2016. Published by Spector Books, Leipzig. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 88 pp. 27 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783959050647 In English.
Publisher's description: A long-awaited publication by the noted German photo-based artist Heidi Specker, Re-Prise captures her version of Ci-contre, a photographic work by artist/flaneur Moi Wer, whose almost-forgotten work from 1930s Paris was published by photographic collectors Ann and Jurgen Wilde in 1972. Inspired by his open threedimensional layout system for photography, Specker adapted it for her 2015 installation at the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, exactly reproducing the artist's images' dimensions and placement to exhibit her own pictures, which share Wer's aesthetic of sensual subjective images from everyday life. Shadows, textures and reflections dominate the diary-like installation of Specker's cinematic photographs, the experience of which is captured in the layout of this artist's book / exhibition catalog catalog. A brief text describing Specker's inspiration and Wer's work and resurfacing in Israel in 1972 is inserted in a side flap at the front of the book.
