An open System meets an open System
This volume documents the ongoing dialogue between the artist Sarah Morris and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist.
In this issue the oldest known works of representational art – stone carvings – become the source material for the artist Tacita Dean and the photographer Boris Mikhailov. Where he extracts from the stone, she adds – collaging, colouring and manipulating. Where Boris pulls the human from the natural, Tacita brings the human in, offering a sense of place and location. Dean herself describes their collaboration as follows: "Perhaps what we are doing here with our rock voodoo is trading in respect for each other’s unselfconsciousness across a continent and a society of difference."
