Renate Aller's favorite book from 2018

Jungjin Lee’s publication Desert offers our eyes a tactile experience. She gives us permission to trace the surface texture in an intimate close up and to get lost in a space devoid of structure and time. The book perfectly translates the experience of viewing her large-scale installations on handmade paper, as well as her small, delicate prints without appearing as documentation. This publication is a jewel I want to touch and look at over and over again as one would read and re-read a favorite poem.


Born in Germany, Renate Aller lives and works in New York. Mountain Interval is her latest project and is accompanied by a monograph published by Radius Books with an essay by The Parrish Museum director, Terrie Sultan. Aller's work supports her investigation into the relationship between Romanticism, memory, and landscape – in the context of our current socio-political awareness. www.renatealler.com

Renate Aller's favorite book from 2018

In his exceptionally beautifully printed book, Lines and Lineage, Thomas van Houtryve recontextualizes and corrects the narratives and mythologies of the Far West as they had been mis-presented in the American awareness for the last 150 years — and again self-servingly for the recent administration.

He intentionally uses a 19th-century camera and wet plate process to re-tell the untold Mexican story in the way that it would have been told in the mid-19th century. Filling in this blank that Western perception consciously created, he pairs as diptychs, compelling portraits of descendants of the original Mexican inhabitants with landscapes that describe their link and connectedness to the land.
