PROSSER, Simon (ed.)
Francis Upritchard. A Loose Hold
“Ram’s eyelids lazily closed, nostrils silently flared and ears flopped like a teddy bear. Two humanoid figures lay on its head in a centaur’s posture, feet dangling upwards.” —LPPL
The book explores scale and perspective in various ways: scale of works, dogs were used for scale in photographs, a wide range of age on the writers, and different sized pages and more. The book was published in conjunction with Francis Upritchard’s first solo exhibition in Switzerland, at Kunsthaus Centre d’art Pasquart in Biel, including over 100 works—but this is a book designed by Åbäke so expect the unexpected, signatures of various sizes, bright colors, ASMR-like papers, and amazing ways to dodge with the constraints of the catlaogue format to make Upritchard’s sculptures ALIVE on paper.
