A Visual Primer by Yves Abrioux, 2nd Edition / Finlay, Ian Hamilton ; Bann S., 1992

 Item
Identifier: CC-10943-11155
Scope and Contents The second edition brings up to date Finlay's career and adds two new chapters. MSNBC March 28, 2006 Ian Hamilton Finlay, one of Scotland's best known artists, died Monday. He was 80. Finlay, whose work included sculpture, poetry and philosophy, died peacefully at a nursing home in Scotland after a long illness, said Victoria Miro, a spokeswoman for his gallery in London. The artist's relationship with nature lay at the heart of his work, and his most famous legacy is "Little Sparta," the garden of his farmhouse at Stonypath in Dunsyre, Scotland, southwest of Edinburgh. Finlay moved to Stonypath in 1966 and set about transforming the plot into a neoclassical sculpture garden. Every surface, from benches to headstones and obelisks, is inscribed with his words. Stonypath was recently voted the greatest Scottish artwork of all time and it remained Finlay's home until his death. Last month, Finlay's work was included in the Tate Triennial, a major survey of contemporary British art....

After the Freud Museum, 2000

 Item
Identifier: CC-34497-36194
Scope and Contents

This book was a result of an initial installation in the Freud Museum, London, 1994 called "The Reading Room." Hiller states that "it locates something else which is entirely distinct conceptually." The artist created complex boxes with found objects and texts "orchestrating relationships, and inventing fluid taxonomies, while not excluding [herself] from them...Sequences, patterns, repetitions and gaps structure this book." This is a second edition of this book which coincides with the exhibition of the work at the Tate Modern. The Sackner Archive also contains the 1995 first edition. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

After the Freud Museum, 1995

 Item
Identifier: CC-39018-40955
Scope and Contents

The artist writes in an Afterward, "The title looks back on my recent experience of creating an installation at and for the Freud Museum and at the same time, it locates something else which is entirely distinct conceptually. What I think is positioned here is an extended and episodic view of my personal sense of inhabiting an historically-specific museum of culture with permeable boundaries...Probably artists function by simultaneously enacting the reciprocal roles of curator and subject, therapist and client; I've worked by collecting objects, orchestrating relationships, and inventing fluid taxonomies, while not excluding myself from them." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
