McKENZIE, Lucy; PROCTOR, Jacob (ed.)
“. . . McKenzie shows how artifice intersects with autobiography in ways that although not necessarily true are nonetheless ‘plausible enough’. Authenticity was never the point. After all fidelity is primarily a formal and procedural concern for this artist. It is precisely her attention to and painting of inauthenticity . . . that is her best act of vandalism.”
A very nice monograph, documenting the full range of McKenzie’s oeuvre – “from her early works exploring the pageantry and iconography of international sport and the politics of postwar muralism, through her engagement with fin-de-siècle architecture and interior design and mid-century Belgian illustration,” as the distributor puts it.
With texts by the artist, Mason Leaver-Yap, Leah Pires, Anne Pontégnie, Jacob Proctor.
