FABIAN MARTI: BILDER 2005-2016. Kunstmuseum Luzern, 2016. Published in association with Edition Patrick Frey, Zurich. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 250 pp. 30 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783905929997 In English.
Publisher's description: LA- and Zurich-based Swiss artist Fabian Marti's visual narratives of photograms and collages create both a tactile and mystical experience in this excellent artist monograph. Bilder is a trip through visual realms: the milky white of mountain crystal, the raw dun of rock caves, the sandy beige of Greek ruins. Combining digital and analog -- photograms and appropriated photographs -- Marti collapses past and present in monochromatic images that evoke ancient symbolism. The installations featured in the Kunstmuseum Luzern exhibition combine sculpture, drawing, video and large photograms. One series even explores the origins of LSD, from the deadly fungus that infected rye fields and decimated thousands in the Middle Ages to its refinement into the most important mind-altering drug of the 20th century. Accompanying essay by Irish philosopher Paul J. Ennis explores Marti's fascination with the mystical and hallucinogens and the influence of constructivism on the artist's photograms and collages.
