  • Gilbert & George: The General Jungle or Carrying on Sculpting

Comprised of twenty-three monumental, multi-panel charcoal-on-paper sculptures depicting the artists wandering streets and parks in London and inscribed with philosophical slogans, The General Jungle or Carrying on Sculpting was first exhibited at the Sonnabend Gallery in New York in 1971. Published in conjunction with Lévy Gorvy’s exhibition of the work, this fully illustrated catalogue features a newly commissioned essay by Michael Bracewell based on a recent interview with the artists, an original poem by Kostas Anagnopoulos, newspaper reviews from the inaugural exhibition at the Sonnabend Gallery, and a facsimile of the postal sculpture A Day in the Life of George & Gilbert, the sculptors (1971).

  • Seung-taek Lee
    Quick shop

    At once emphatically abstract and culturally specific, the work of Seung-taek Lee (born 1932) draws on the subtle beauty of Korean aesthetic traditions and folk art, also reflecting contemporaneous developments in earth art, Mono-ha and postminimalism—while maintaining resolute independence from its peer groups. Lee’s oeuvre spans painting, drawing, sculpture, installation and performance, often within the same piece. Notions of negation—which he alternately refers to as “dematerialization,” “anti-concept,” and “non-sculpture”—structure his approach, by which he transforms ordinary objects, imbuing them with multiple meanings and affects. Embracing invisible forces and unorthodox materials such as tree branches, wire, stones, human hair, fabric and rope, his art elevates the mundane to the level of myth. Published in conjunction with Lévy Gorvy’s exhibition Seung-taek Lee, this illustrated publication features an interview of the artist by Hans-Ulrich Obrist, an essay by curator and scholar Kyung An, and a specially commissioned poem by Mónica de la Torre. This is the first English-language overview on Lee’s work.

  • Vincenzo Agnetti: Territories

    Vincenzo Agnetti: Territories was on view at Lévy Gorvy’s London gallery from March 31 to May 13 and traveled to New York from July 6 through August 18, 2017, and the transnational exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive monograph. This publication includes full-color illustrations of Agnetti’s works featured in the exhibition, an unprecedented selection representing the broad range of materials and styles that comprise his oeuvre. The catalogue also features writings by the artist; a personal reflection by the artist’s daughter, Germana Agnetti; essays by Ara H. Merjian, Karen Pinkus, and Bruno Corà; and a chronology. The book details three bodies of work by the artist: his famous Macchina drogata (Drugged Machine) and its products, which Pinkus explores in depth in her catalogue essay; the Axioms; and the Feltri. Merjian’s text represents an analysis of Agnetti’s use of language and his relationship to the neo-avant-garde. The catalogue also includes the artist’s manifesto Macchina drogata, in a new translation by Pinkus. With a wealth of archival images and full-color plates, this publication constitutes an important step in scholarship on this groundbreaking artist and his oeuvre.

    Willem de Kooning | Zao Wou-Ki

    $60.00

    This volume explores the parallel careers of two celebrated postwar painters: Willem de Kooning (1904 – 1997) and Zao Wou–Ki (1921 – 2013). Published in conjunction with Lévy Gorvy’s exhibition pairing the artist's abstract landscapes, this wide-ranging catalogue demonstrates that, although the two never met, de Kooning and Zao shared a model of color, composition, and motif that remains relevant in the world of contemporary painting. With texts in English, Chinese, and French, Willem de Kooning | Zao Wou-Ki charts an East-West dialogue in the immediate aftermath of World War II, tracing the thread of nonfigurative abstraction in Chinese, European, and American modernism. With rich archival material, never-before-published photographs, and newly commissioned essays, Willem de Kooning | Zao Wou-Ki instantiates an innovative transnational reading of postwar painting.
