Myths of the Marble
Documenting a group exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), University of Pennsylvania, and Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (HOK), Norway, this catalog—like the exhibition—reflects on how the “virtual” has been engaged by contemporary artists as a way to consider the world as a site of possibility and limitation that permeates both physical space and online experience.
Myths of the Marble begins with individual profiles of each artist and expansive color images of their work, which includes painting, sculpture, and installation as well as video, 16-mm film, and VR technology.
Informative installation views from both venues connect the essays from scholars Homay King and Tom Holert, along with artists Cayetano Ferrer, Florian Meisenberg, Sondra Perry, and art historians Iggy Cortez and Marina Isgro, discussing concepts ranging from the video game “skybox” to the complexities of the “prosthetic.”
Artists included in the exhibition and catalog: Rachel de Joode, Cayetano Ferrer, Ane Graff, Ignas Krunglevicius, Chris Marker, Daria Martin, Florian Meisenberg Shahryar Nashat, Sondra Perry, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Susanne M. Winterling
