DISTANZ is pleased to announce a new art edition by Ser Serpas and Rafik GreissBy the Highway 22

In front of the lowered shutter of a closed gateway, which clearly marks the boundary between inside and outside, living space and street, an unusual pair of garden chair and pram appears, revealing the dichotomies that Serpas creates in her assemblages of found garbage and abandoned things. Two discarded objects that still contain traces of individual biographies are mounted by the artist and shaped into a new poetic form. This temporary object assemblage is pictured in a photograph taken by Greiss.

The edition was created while working on the collaborative book project By the Highway (2023), in which Serpas walks through Paris with Greiss, seeking out the sites that shape her sculptures and installations. In dialogue with Dora Budor, this volume in the KONTEXT book series presents new approaches to form, volume, and materiality as well as how Serpas’s method updates the tradition of readymades. More information here.

KONTEXT, a series by DISTANZ, brings together artists and writers for an exchange between the worlds of writing and contemporary art. With commissioned text, reissued essays, or experimental writing, the publication series seeks to look at and comment on current debates through writing and contemporary art. Other issues: Douglas Crimp with Henrik Olesen (2020), Henrike Naumann with Angela Schönberger and Andreas Brandolini (2021), Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings with Christina B. Hanhardt (2023), Lighting the Archive with Mike Sperlinger (2023).
