Houseguests

by Michael Huey


Photographs: Michael Huey

Text: With contributions by Philipp Bloom, Jennie Hirsch and Michael Huey

Publisher: schlebrugge.editor

58 pages

Year: 2010

ISBN: ISBN 978-3-85160-191-6

Price: 18

Comments: numerous illustrations in colour, 28x20,5 cm, Softcover

The book documents two solo exhibitions by the American artist Michael Huey, where he continues (like in the previous artist books Betsy and I Killed the Bear and ASH, inc.) to explore the themes of heritage and loss, of archives, image recall, and re-staging. For his solo exhibition Houseguests (2010) Huey produced a series of photographs based on photographs of rococo-styled furniture found in American houses. Orientation on traditions and the situating into found narratives is again the focus in the second series of works represented in this book. The spectral-coloured negatives of hutches (China Cupboards) from private homes, exceed the purely documentary act and pose questions of personal representation between coded memory and historical images.
