In stock now at Owl Cave Books: The Forever Loop, Eddie Peake, Ridinghouse and Barbican Art Gallery, 2015.
Accompanying the artist’s exhibition at the Barbican, London in late 2015, this volume examines the playful web of performance, sculpture, video and painting that Peake specifically created for the space.

Alongside installation views, related work and an interview with the artist by Alona Pardo, an essay by Omar Kholeif explores the broad set of allusions embedded within Peake’s work, from the classical nude to popular culture and underground music.

Back in stock! Naoko Takahashi, Not So Too Much of Much of Everything. “Based on personal experience of a three month residency in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, Not So Too Much of Much of Everything is written in the style of a factual report, and explores ideas of dislocation, mistranslation and gender politics. Moving from confusion and isolation to corporeal anger, the artist’s residency and the everyday frustrations of making work in a new context are cast as a modern allegory of alienation.” One of the first titles we carried at Owl Cave Books and still one of our favorites!

In stock now! “ARTISTS’ RECIPES”, the artists’ cookbook with recipes and illustrations by 81 international artists, follows up an outstanding launch with a second edition. The book contains contributions from such artists as Marina Abramovic, Rirkit Tiravanija, Ryan Gander,  Jonathan Monk, Sue Webster and more.
