WORK HARD: SELECTIONS BY VALENTIN CARRON. Karen Marta. Swiss Institute, New York, 2016. Published in association with Karma, New York. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 200 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781942607274 In English.
Publisher's description: Work Hard, the curatorial debut of celebrated Swiss artist Valentin Carron (born 1977), presents a creative discourse between a surprising group of artists: Edmond Bille, Vittorio Brodmann, Marguerite Burnat-Provins, Luciano Castelli, Claudia Comte, Sylvain Croci-Torti, Latifa Echakhch, Frederic Gabioud, Mathis Gasser, Fabrice Gygi, Andreas Hochuli, Trix and Robert Haussmann, David Hominal, Bernhard Luginbuhl, Urs Luthi, Fabian Marti, Meret Oppenheim, Simon Paccaud, Mai-Thu Perret, Ugo Rondinone, Denis Savary, Daniel Spoerri and Jean Tinguely. In this book Carron suggests an imaginary time and place in art history while conjuring mythologies of labor and exploring the very personal approach that he took to understanding the narrative of national identity. Essays by Mai-Thu Perret and Balthazar Lovay plus an annotated walkthrough by Carron evoke the vernacular poetry of quirky Swissness.
