About this title


Part monograph and part artist book, The Imagines started with an invitation
to its writers to respond to four recent art installations by Berlin-based artist
Ines Lechleitner. Lechleitner furthers her artistic explorations in perception and
language by utilizing the Greek notion of ekphrases (vivid textual descriptions
of visual artworks). In the original Roman text, paintings (which may never have
existed) are described in such a detailed and sensory manner that the reader can
imagine standing in front of them. Employing this notion, Lechleitner collaborates
with writer/curator Agnieszka Gratza, Béatrice Gross, Chantal Pontbriand and
Allen S. Weiss to build up narratives within the space of the book utilizing a variety
of visual and textual elements. The resulting collaborations invite the reader/
viewer to reflect upon the intertwining of verbal and nonverbal communication
and the nature of dialogic exchange in contemporary art.
