Embodying Anew a is show including works by Magdalene Odundo, Simone Leigh and Thaddeus Mosley, three artists who engage extensively with international creative practices to synthesise the aesthetics of a vast array of visual traditions within their work “collectively, this feels like the wildest kind of jazz: it is improvisation, syncopation, scholarship, care, attention, memory”.
Conceptualised and designed as an archived ephemera the limited edition publication captures the spirit of the show and transcends its temporality marking its position in history. Comprised of a manilla DL envelope containing a silkscreened colour sheet wrapping a die-stamped linen envelope. Inside a series of offset reproductions featuring a bust by Simone Leigh, a sculpture by Thaddeus Mosley and three vessels by Magdalene Odundo with a hand-stamped colour photographic print of the installation and a booklet with an essay by Lauren DeLand.
