LOST - Rare Fine Copy of The Exhibition Catalog/Portfolio
Available From More sellersView all copies of this book
1st Printing. Unpaginated. Published in 1994. Exhibition Catalog, presented as an Artist Book/Portfolio of mementos. One of Christian Boltanski's finest achievements. The first and only edition. Produced in a small and limited print run as a softcover portfolio only. There is no ISBN. The Catalog is now rare. Presents Christian Boltanski's "Lost". A Portfolio of Boltanski's "Lost" installations held in England, Scotland, and Ireland. The pieces are encased in a gray paper accordion folder with a black cloth tie. Inside are the Introductory Sheet and various files presented in different colors: "Death and The Duck-Rabbit"; An Interview With Boltanski; "Lost Property" Exhibition Documentation; "Lost Property" Record Cards; "Dead Swiss" Exhibition Documentation; "Lost Workers" packs of time cards; and four black-and-white Postcards. "Lost" has been one of Boltanski's deepest concerns (he has used the same title for various exhibitions). He presented thousands of lost objects found in trains and never claimed for one of his major New York installations. "Dispersion", "Compra-Venta" ("Buy And Sell"), and the present "Lost" exhibition are all permeated by the fact that we do not only lose things, but that as human beings, we often feel lost. The loss of memory itself is probably the most painfully beautiful theme of Boltanski's art. We need to remember because we forget. But we need to forget because we need to move on. We cannot move on if we are unable or unwilling to remember. In one of the greatest art projects of our time, Boltanski created photographs that faded as soon as one looked at them. In another, plastic models crumbled as soon as one touched them. No artist has pursued the idea of The Archive with the same fervour as Boltanski. Retrieval of what is Lost is every archive's lyrical side. An absolute "must-have" title for Christian Boltanski collectors. This copy is a great Artist Book. This is one of very few copies of the Exhibition Catalog still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: Copies available online command more than $800. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. One of the greatest artists of our time. A fine collectible copy.
