reqiuem for the sun:
The art of mono-ha
Catalogue of a major survey exhibition held at Blum & Poe, Los Angeles (February 25 — April 14, 2012).
Kishio Suga was a member of Mono-ha (School of Things), whose primary tenet explores the encounter between natural and industrial objects, in and of themselves arranged directly on the floor or in an outdoor field.
This publication is the most comprehensive study in English to date on Mono-ha and examines the group's practice in Tokyo between 1968-1972 at the height of the nation's political upheaval against the US-Japan Security Treaty, anti-Vietnam War protests and the oil crisis. It includes an essay with new scholarship by Mika Yoshitake, translations of artists' texts, a chronology of historical exhibitions with accompanying rare installation photographs, and new photography of the works installed at Blum & Poe.
