Description

? , Chapter 24 illustrates 61paintings from the exhibition of the same name at the Museum Abteiberg in Mönchengladbach, Germany, June 3 – November 4, 2012. This latest chapter employs a variety of images directly related to Museum Abteiberg and Mönchengladbach. Many of the paintings are made from the museum’s image archive, and photographs taken by the artist of works in the permanent collection. These images are presented alongside several small portraits of their custodian, chief curator Hannelore Kersting. In addition, Quaytman utilized in the gesso ground compositions and various paper patterns for shirt collars and cuffs provided by the Van Laack headquarters in Mönchengladbach. The title ? is the Hebrew letter Dalet or D. It also symbolizes the number 4, which in turn is the number of the square, the chosen ratio for the works in this chapter.

The boxed set of 61 cards depicts each painting accompanied by corresponding notes written by the artist about each image. Additionally, the box includes an essay on Chapter 24 by Mark Godfrey, a facsimile of Yve-Alain Bois’ early essay The Tree and the Square, plus the original 1977 version L’arbre et le carré, and a new German translation. The box format is a direct reference to the famous catalogues published by the Museum in Mönchengladbach under the direction of Johannes Cladders.
