Artist's book Staub | Dust
“Mirjam Baker – Staub | Dust” is the accompanying publication to the exhibition “Mirjam Baker. Dust” in the tresor at Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien in Vienna from 3rd Oct. – 21st Nov. 2021.
The video work “Dust” shown in the tresor is made of twelve hand-animated sequences of vibrating colour fields – from deep purple to vibrant magenta to intensive phthalo blue. Painted in exquisitely fine-tuned pigment and animated as film, the monochrome projections, when observed, attain a nuanced three-dimensionality.
An original “Dust” pastel is reproduced in the book from each color sequence, accompanied by an essay by Daniel Kothenschulte and a conversation that the curator Veronika Rudorfer conducted with the artist.
Published on 2nd Oct. 2021.
