Falke Pisano and Will Holder talk about how their longtime conversation shaped Figures of Speech – Pisano’s new artist book, just published by JRP Ringier/Christoph Keller Editions, that Holder edited and designed.
What does the book form produces in relation to the characteristic circulatory nature and dynamic of Pisano’s work?
Does it freeze it, slow it down, or put it further into motion?
And how does it relate to Louis Zukofsky’s famous:
Infinite is a meaningless word: except – it states
The mind is capable of performing
an endless process of addition.
The book will also be discussed with respect to two other outstanding publications that Will Holder edited and designed recently, almost concurrently: For the blind man in the dark room looking for the black cat that isn’t there (2009), the companion book for the eponymous exhibition curated by Anthony Huberman, and The Otolith Group: A Long Time Between Two Suns (2010).
