Kiki and Seton Smith - Beam of Light (Afterlife Series) - 2018

Kiki and Seton Smith - Beam of Light - 2018This book combines two kinds of imagery. It pairs together Beam of Light, Kiki Smith’s drawings from the Vision Hour collages, with Seton Smith’s photographs of Hangzhou and the Pedder Building in Hong Kong. Page after page, one is confronted by alternating moods, either shifting towards the marvel of nature or sliding into cloistered spaces. It suggests ancient dichotomies, like heaven and hell, body and soul, decomposition and growth.

Haim Steinbach - No Elephants (Afterlife Series) - 2018

This 64-page, softcover book is an intermedial mix of image and text. A black hole steadily expands on each page while, on the verso, Steinbach repeats a single line of text 33 times. Negation after negation, the black hole gradually engulfs the page. This occupation of space paradoxically voids it while obscuring the concept of the infinite itself.

Giovanni Anselmo - Direzioni (Afterlife Series) - 2016

Giovanni Anselmo - Direzioni - 2016This softcover book reproduces pencil drawings from Anselmo’s 1978 exhibition ‘Un particolare a sud, Trecento milioni di anni ad ovest nord-ovest, quattordici disegni intorno‘ at Sperone Westwater Fischer, New York. Each copy features a unique titular frottage by the artist. The drawings show a compass in sixteen different positions. As the needle rotates, the number of directions multiply. Anselmo’s afterlife hints to an immanent infinity that threatens to collapse our sense of measurement, space and orientation before the intimation of a void.

Ettore Spalletti - Dono, Colore (Afterlife Series) - 2016

Ettore Spalletti - Dono, Colore - 2016Each book contains a single fragile card which the artist has painted with layers of impasto on both sides. The card combines the flatness of painting and the three-dimensionality of sculpture. It is in the artist’s signature spectrum of colour, in shades of blue and pink, and operates almost as a relic. The whole object is bound in a hardcover book and held in a case. Arguably, for Spalletti, the afterlife pertains to the perennial presence of colour.
