Description

Part monograph and part artist book, The Imagines started with an invitation to its writers to respond to four recent art installations by Berlin-based artist Ines Lechleitner. Lechleitner furthers her artistic explorations in perception and language by utilizing the Greek notion of ekphrases (vivid textual descriptions of visual artworks). In the original Roman text, paintings (which may never have existed) are described in such a detailed and sensory manner that the reader can imagine standing in front of them. Employing this notion, Lechleitner collaborates with writer/curator Agnieszka Gratza, Béatrice Gross, Chantal Pontbriand and Allen S. Weiss to build up narratives within the space of the book utilizing a variety of visual and textual elements. The resulting collaborations invite the reader/ viewer to reflect upon the intertwining of verbal and nonverbal communication and the nature of dialogic exchange in contemporary art.
