Another Land by Nicky Coutts

£45.00

Product description

Another Land conjures up a place that is not of the here and now, an elsewhere estranged and separate, yet familiar and perceptively real. It also suggests exhaustive repetition: a terrain of copies, replicas, replacements; another and another, time and again. The three triptychs collected under this title evolved from an earlier series, which included the re-presentation of Johannes Vermeer's paintings. Coutts subsequently turned her attention to the crowd and to the broader view, towards how images of land are constructed and inherited. Current political and religious conflicts reminds us that claims on territory can stretch far beyond the purely physical. In this sense, the visionary worlds that medieval painter Hieronymus Bosch described do not seem so distant. Another Land could evoke the scattering of objects in Surrealist films. Equally, Coutts' continuing use of the monochrome could indicate that her intention to construct a document of an impossible place, one that acknowledges the fictions and unsettling facts at work within it.

David Burrows' text charts a fascinating voyage through a number of possible readings of the imagery, and proposes that finding a reliable access point to it, with so many to choose from, is in itself an essential act of engagement with the work. Anita Phillips relates the latent violence in the process of making the images, a year of painstaking and meticulous late-at-night beheadings, amputations, annihilations, with current global atrocities. Other writes contribute to this work also.

Condition: As new. The book has been read and is in perfect condition. The book is not marred by notes or highlighting. The pages are intact. Original dust-jacket accompanies book.
