Drawing inspiration from principles of mathematics and physics, Auerbachâ€™s work straddles conceptual art, abstraction, and design. With an evocation of graphic art, this book demonstrates systems of logic pictorially. Each sheet has an array of cutouts used as spray paint stencils to create a pattern of circles and tubular pill shapes. Spray paint on plotter cut Bristol paper with cloth binding. Card inserted in the book serves as the colophon.
Edition of 10 copies.

Pia Camil Xiuquilla/Blue milk weed, 2017
19 5/8 x 19 5/8 in. (50 x 50 cm)
Hand sewn cotton leporello book, with screenprinting, in cloth box with colophon.
Published by Zucker Art Books, NY. Edition of 8 variants, with 2 AP.
Each copy is signed and numbered.
Each book is handmade from repurposed fabrics the artist found in Mexico City. Camilâ€™s interventions include cutting shapes common in cloth making such as sleeves, collars, torsos, and recombining them in a colorful array, hand sewn into a double sided sequence. She designed small buttonholes in between the panels so the work can be hung as a banner as well, choosing either side. This sort of interaction between the work and the viewer is a key element throughout Camilâ€™s oeuvre, which even includes works to be worn or walked on.
Pia Camil (b. 1980) lives and works in Mexico City. She has a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, London. Her work has been exhibited internationally, with recent solo-exhibitions including A Pot for a Latch, New Museum, New York (2016); Skins, Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati (2015); The Little Dog Laughed, Blum & Poe, Los Angeles (2014); and Cuadrado Negro, Basque Museum Centre for Contemporary Art, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain (2013).

The art magazine edited by Christian Zervos featured the Large Glass in 1936. The cover consists the contrast of two complementary colors, that is, red and blue. Staring at this cover,the blue color part is sunk and the small heart at center floats in blue back. The pursuit of such a illusional visual eftect was Duchamp's life-time theme.

Dieter Roth Book HB (2. Aufl.), 1973
15 x 15 in. (38 x 38 cm)
24 blue and orange hand-cut sheets with slots at 90, 75, and 60 degrees. With the 38cm square format, Roth goes back to smaller sized paper he started using in the early 1960s. This is copy 7 of the proposed edition of 25, signed and dated on title page.
The work consists of five individual windows mounted side by side in a wooden frame, each hinged allowing both sides to be seen. The upper surface of each frame is fitted with a metal handle which can be opened and were used to fill the frames with spices or to smell them more intensly. Each of the five frames contains a variety of spices in ever-different layers, although in some cases a whole window is filled only with one spice. They produce a structure reminiscent of the strata of the earth, or of overlapping landscapes extending into the distance.

Sarkis Zabunyan, known as Sarkis, was born in Istanbul in 1938. He is a Turkish-born Armenian conceptual artist living in France. His family moved from Sivas to Istanbul. Sarkis studied at the St. Michel French High School and got his degree from Mimar Sinan University. He decided to use his Christian name Sarkis in his professional artistic life, and moved to Paris in 1962 after winning the Paris Young Artists? Biennial Prize. One of the leading conceptual artists, Sarkis has returned to his native Turkey many times since the 1980s to exhibit his work. He has participated in the Istanbul Biennial. Since the 1970â€˛s, Sarkis has used installation, photography, watercolor and video to bring together the legacies of art and cinema with the intellectual traditions of East and West. His art explores issues of presence and absence, place and identity, permanence and transience. Drawing on the mystical traditions of the East, he is particularly interested in the relationship between time and memory, and emphasizes the temporary nature of matter and experience. He was the curator of the last ever Fureya Koral exhibition when ceramic artist Koral was still alive. As a professor at Strasbourg Beaux Arts, Sarkis has trained young Turkish artists including Su YĂĽcel and Serhat Kiraz. Sarkisâ€˛s exhibition, A Milestone, was curated by Ali Akay, (May 2005) at the Akbank Art Gallery in Istanbul. The gallery devoted all of its six floors to the Sarkis. Apart from Turkey and France, Sarkis has exhibited his work in over three dozen countries, including the USA, Germany, India, Australia, China, Japan, Mexico and Brazil. Sarkisâ€˛s motto is "AnÄ±larÄ±m VatanÄ±mdÄ±r" (My Memories are My Country).
