At the Kunsthalle Zurich Seth Price debuts new work in a specific installation, together with selected pieces from the last few years. These include vacuum-formed plastic reliefs, crumpled mylar forms printed with video stills, and recent ‘silhouette’ compositions, based on negative spaces taken from low quality internet pictures of common human interactions, and crafted out of wood veneer and plastic using a fabrication technique developed for the purpose of creating a new “look and feel”: a design quality that had not previously existed, but very well could. Like much of his work, these pieces depend as much on industrial production methods as on digital sources and manipulation. In addition to sculpture, Price will exhibit a new video, Redistribution (2008), a constantly changing and never completed “rough draft,” designed to incorporate any potential materials. In this case it takes up a slide lecture Price recently delivered, as well as found documentary video and images.
the Kunsthalle, Price's just-published book "How
to Disappear in America" will be available for the first time, an
excerpt of which follows:
like a person who makes things. You do it one after another, unending.
It goes on for such
time: something new, and something else, and something something. Here
come a lot of different varieties of strategies and arrangements, all
interesting, all interlocking, mutatis mutandis. Such a lot of things!
As if with a twist of the kaleidoscope all would become clear, splinters join, new scapes hove into view.
