Banks Violette
Untitled, 2011
painted steel
65 x 290 x 65 inches

Untitled, 2011 is the first sculpture that Banks Violette created specifically to be placed outdoors, a monumental work stretching twenty-four feet across. His process included sketches, the fabrication of lengths of steel, the cutting and welding of separate elements, and the final powder coating of the entirety. Constructed as a shiny black barrier whose modular nature fractures, the form embodies Violette's deep interest in wedding a minimalist inheritance with the aura of staged tragedy - a melding of formalism with an iconography of cruelty, violence and death. The splintered edge of the sculpture punctures the ground and juts into the air, assuming the appearance of wreckage. In line with his large-scale sculptures of screens partly crushed and his ghostly graphite drawings of crashed cars, the outdoor sculpture, while abstract, resonates as a roadside barrier destroyed in a critical collision. 
Violette's work is included in numerous public collections, including those of the Whitney, the Guggenheim, and MoMA in New York; MoCA and LACMA in Los Angeles, and the Migros Museum in Zürich. He has had monographic exhibitions at Kunsthalle Wien, Bergen Kunsthall, Norway, Museum Dhont-Dhaenens, Belgium, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

Gardar Eide Einarsson
Rendering for Untitled (Apparatus), 2011
painted steel
96 x 108 x 84 inches
Gardar Eide Einarsson's Untitled (Apparatus), 2011, takes its form from exercise constructions found in prison-yards. To Einarsson, these pull-up bars epitomize contemporary prison architecture, forgoing traditional design conditions for the sake of a functionality aimed at preventing certain behaviors in its prisoners. The artist is interested in theories of discipline and control, and particularly the ways in which they can affect the human body. The sculpture shares a visual affinity with minimalism, particularly in its preoccupation with the relationship between sculpture and the body of the spectator: Einarsson's artwork could actually be used to transform the viewer's body, through exercise. 

Einarsson was recently the subject of a survey show, Power Has a Fragrance, which opened at Oslo's Astrup-Fearnley Museum and then traveled to the Reykjavik Art Museum, Bonniers Konsthall in Stockholm and the Fridericianum in Kassel. Additional solo museum exhibitions have been held at the Kunstverein Frankfurt, Centre d'Art Contemporain, Geneva, and the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis.
The sculptures will be installed at Collins Park, outside of the Bass Museum of Art. Art Public is curated by Christine Y. Kim, who is the Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and Co-Founder of the Los Angeles Nomadic Division (LAND).

SUNN O))) meets NURSE WITH WOUND 2LP released!



I'm very pleased to announce that the SUNN O))) meets NURSE WITH WOUND "Iron Soul Of Nothing" gatefold 2LP has been released on my own imprint IDEOLOGIC ORGAN. This material is a result of NURSE WITH WOUND working with the original master tapes of SUNN O)))'s second album, 2000's "ØØVOID" in Colin Potters ICR studios. The results are astounding and original, both capturing the haze and aether of the original recordings, but mining and presenting something totally new in their oproceedings. We are pleased to present the material on it's own in a package with amazing artwork by Timo Ketola.

You can order it directly via Editions Mego or Metamkine, and also through Forced Exposure in the states. Southern Lord Recordings will also be stocking copies of this vinyl in the near future.
