Grazer Kunstverein, 2017–2020
In 2017 Triple Candie (Shelly Bancroft and Peter Nesbett) began a multi-layered research project, investigating the work and methodologies of American artist Michael Asher (1943–2012). This performative project attempted to resurrect the lost experiential potentialities of Asher’s situational artworks, drawing on a depth of research to create new interventions in a new context, that of the institutional framework of the Grazer Kunstverein. The resulting propositions, speculations, interventions, and installations are documented in this new publication. This catalogue is published in collaboration with Phileas – A fund for Contemporary Art.
