Book Summary:

In this in-depth analysis, Peter Muir argues that Gordon Matta-Clark?s Conical Intersect (1975) is emblematic of Henri Lefebvre?s understanding of art?s function in relation to urban space. By engaging with Lefebvre?s theory in conjunction with the perspectives of other writers, such as Michel de Certeau, Jacques Derrida, and George Bataille, the book elicits a story that presents the artwork?s significance, origins and legacies. Conical Intersect is a multi-media artwork, which involves the intersections of architecture, sculpture, film, and photography, as well as being a three-dimensional model that reflects aspects of urban, art, and architectural theory, along with a number of cultural and historiographic discourses which are still present and active. This book navigates these many complex narratives by using the central ?hole? of Conical Intersect as its focal point: this apparently vacuous circle around which the events, documents, and other historical or theoretical references surrounding Matta-Clark?s project, are perpetually in circulation. Thus, Conical Intersect is imagined as an insatiable absence around which discourses continually form, dissipate and resolve. Muir argues that Conical Intersect is much more than an ?artistic hole.? Due to its location at Plateau Beaubourg in Paris, it is simultaneously an object of art and an instrument of social critique.

Book Summary:

This revealing book looks at the groundbreaking work of Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978), whose socially conscious practice blurred the boundaries between contemporary art and architecture. After completing a degree in architecture at Cornell University, Matta-Clark returned to his home city of New York, where he initiated a series of site-specific works in derelict areas of the South Bronx. The borough's many abandoned buildings, the result of economic decline and middle-class flight, served as Matta-Clark's raw material. His series 'Bronx Floors' dissected these structures, performing an anatomical study of ther ravaged urban landscape. Moving from New York to Paris with 'Conical Interserct', a piece that became emblematic of artistic protest, Matta-Clark applied this same method to a pair of seventeenth-century row houses slatted for demolition as a result of the Centre Pompidou's construction. This compelling volume grounds Matta-Clark's practice against the framework of architectural and urban history, stressing his pioneering activist-inspired approach, as well as his contribution to the nascent fields of social practice and relational aesthetics.

Book Summary:

Documenting the artist’s extraordinary accomplishments as a draftsman, this publication originates from the 2015 solo presentation at David Zwirner, New York, entitled Energy & Abstraction, organized in close collaboration with Jane Crawford and Jessamyn Fiore from the Estate of Gordon Matta-Clark. Well known for his radical “anarchitectural” interventions throughout the 1970s, Gordon Matta-Clark was always deeply, though less publicly, committed to drawing. His works on paper—which span three-dimensional reliefs, calligraphy, and notebook entries—capture the interdisciplinary spirit that defined the art world in the 1970s. Intricate and concise, they testify to his interest in the crossovers between visual and performance arts, as well as the broader integration within his oeuvre of the natural and built environment. This catalogue presents in vibrant detail selections from Matta-Clark’s Cut Drawings, Energy Rooms, Energy Trees, and his own “calligraphy,” many of which have never been published. Perhaps the best known of the group, the Cut Drawings explore parallel, smaller-format versions of his physical interventions in architecture; slicing meticulously through several layers of paper, gesso, or cardboard, Matta-Clark created sculptural flat works that emphasized the voids created by the extraction of matter. Drawings with his own “calligraphy” emphasize the medium of drawing as an independent form. Abstract letters make up a code that remains indecipherable, but points toward a visionary longing to invent new languages and structures of experience. Some of the most elaborate and colorful compositions include trees, several of which refer explicitly to Matta-Clark’s Tree Dance performance at Vassar College in upstate New York in 1971. In full-color plates, the reader can see the physical structure of his trees “dissolving” into kinetic energy and, in some drawings, becoming reduced to a multitude of arrows. Near-abstract tree shapes also incorporate his calligraphic marks, with branches constructed from imaginary letters, again emphasizing the importance of language to a new visual experience. Matta-Clark’s notebooks, which he often insisted on completing in a single sitting, are presented in elegantly curated groups. Combining elements of Surrealist automatic drawing with an interest in choreography, these works appealed to performance artists at the time—including Laurie Anderson and Trisha Brown. This unparalleled presentation of Matta-Clark’s drawings is accompanied by new and exciting scholarship by Briony Fer, as well as a conversation between Jessamyn Fiore and contemporary artist Sarah Sze; it marks a major contribution to the literature on this highly influential artist.

Book Summary:

With Greek mythological, Freudian theoretical, Shakespearian, and Jungian psychological inspirations, "Destiny's Stereo" is an artfully abstract literary masterpiece. With hints of modern-day philosophy, psychology, romance, and tragedy, "Destiny's Stereo" uniquely blends free-verse and spoken word poetry with prose storytelling. It depicts one man's struggle with a debilitating mental illness, schizoaffective disorder. It is a psychiatric condition that about one in every 200 people develop during his or her lifetime. With delusions and paranoia of a person diagnosed with schizophrenia and the sporadic mood shifts of a person swinging on the emotional pendulum of bipolar, the talented acid jazz trumpeter, Mr. Sapieus Holmes, fights to maintain healthy relationships with those closest to him. He desperately tries to return to earlier states of being seemingly sane and secured to his spirituality-when love was all he needed, all he knew and all he had to keep him from living with a false sense of reality. "Destiny's Stereo" is entertaining, and some might say it is thrilling. However, if you look deeper, you might find compounded within these few pages, the novelette's dual purpose as an allegory. You can compare the parable of Sapieus to humanity's low collective consciousness, society's pathological denial of reality in favor of believing half-truths, and humankind's devastating separation from raw, unconditional, universal love. "...love is the only thing which can sustain life." - R. Antonio Matta
