Gair Dunlop – Markers for Lothar Baumgarten







Gair Dunlop – Markers for Lothar Baumgarten

An edition of porcelain plant markers.
On one side of the marker is the word BAUM and on the other side the word GARTEN. 
The ceramic markers are frostproof and fully hardy for outdoor use.
Porcelain, 18.5 x 2.2 x 0.5 cm, edition of 50

The work is a 'memento vivae' for the German artist Lothar Baumgarten (Rheinsberg, 1944 – Berlin, 2018). The work of Lothar Baumgarten made a deep impression on Gair Dunlop when he came across his 'Conservatory', 1995, at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh, a work using botanical signage in the glasshouses, which marked meetings and observations of first encounters between Europeans and indigenous people.

Gair Dunlop is an artist who is based in Fife, Scotland and a senior lecturer and researcher at DJCAD, University of Dundee.

Gair Dunlop works with film, photography, archive material and publication in the widest sense. He has a particular interest in the intersection of art, science and technology in the landscape – both in physical space and in the imagination.
He makes artworks that explore lived Modernism: the New Town, the military airfield, the film archive and the scientific research establishment. The range of projects explores their importance in the possibility of building a sense of social optimism and potential.
His work work has been featured in a wide variety of contexts- including Kassel International Documentary Festival, International Symposium of Electronic Arts (ISEA), Rome Media Art festival, Wellcome Trust and recently in a team throughout the Blakeney area of Norfolk. See www.soundingcoastalchange.org
Online collaborations with Dan Norton (ablab) are still live, and have been BAFTA nominated.
During his artistic career, he has amassed a wide range of working experiences. These include photographer at the Science Museum London, landscape and conservation worker at Highgate Cemetery, and projectionist at the Scala Cinema, Kings Cross.

Lesley Kerman – Reconstructing Duccio











Lesley Kerman
Reconstructing Duccio – The Passion Scenes from the Maestà
 

A book published by Short&Forward Publications and Peter Foolen Editions in March 2019 Softcover, 17 x 24 cm, 128 pages Designed by Peter Foolen Printed and bound by Wilco Art Books, The Netherlands Edition of 500 copies ISBN 978-9-490673-26-0

Reconstructing Duccio – The Passion Scenes from the Maestà, by the artist and historian Lesley Kerman, is a deeply thoughtful and highly personal account of her life long relationship with the reverse side of the Maestà, a series of panels painted by Duccio di Buonsegna during the early 1300s in Siena, Italy. It was a revolutionary set of paintings at the time and deals with the story of Easter, starting with Christ’s entry into Jerusalem on what is now known as Palm Sunday.
In 2016 she embarked on a life-size reconstruction of the work, which took two years to complete. This process of investigation was so exciting, enlightening and engrossing, that she began to record her thoughts and discoveries, which resulted in this intriguing book.

The publication was launched at the opening  of the first exhibition at Capel Bethel in Cwmrheidol, Lesley Kerman – Reconstructing Duccio, on Saturday 13th April, the day before Palm Sunday 2019.

Jeremy Cooper – Ash Before Oak, Fitzcarraldo Editions



Jeremy Cooper – Ash Before Oak

a book published by Fitzcarraldo Editions, London, on 17 April 2019
Paperback with flaps, 536 pages, 127 x 195 x 132 mm

Ash Before Oak is a novel in the form of a fictional journal written by a solitary man on a secluded Somerset estate. Ostensibly a nature diary, chronicling the narrator's interest in the local flora and fauna and the passing of the seasons, Ash Before Oak is also the story of a breakdown told slantwise, and of the narrator's subsequent recovery through his reengagement with the world around him. Written in prose that is as precise as it is beautiful, winner of the 2018 Fitzcarraldo Editions Novel Prize, Jeremy Cooper's first novel in over a decade is a stunning investigation of the fragility, beauty and strangeness of life.
