Description

Conceived as a work halfway between an artist’s book and an exhibition catalogue, Triton is a long sequence of images, mostly abstract and amorphous, which depict over one hundred photographic details of the sculpture exhibited in New York in November 2011. Just over six feet tall, with a diameter of three feet, the sculpture is a fountain perched on a pedestal-basin of reflecting material, each side of which is five feet long with an eight-inch edge. The highly uneven surface was created by the use of foam rubber, clay, and various enamels, as well as a series of recycled materials. The single pages of the book depict amorphous layers, bulges, flat surfaces, dark and bright trickles of water alternating in an abstract flow that never entirely reveals the actual sculpture. The artist has used the publication as a kind of musical score, or a stop-motion animation, which inflects the stroboscopic and choreographic movement of the installation in the two-dimensional form of a book.

The catalogue includes an insert with two critical essays by Laura Barreca, the curator of the exhibition, and Luca Lo Pinto.
