PHILLIPS CONTEMPORARY ART NEW YORK EVENING SALE 4 MAY 2015 is an artist’s book by Marc Horowitz accompanying his solo exhibition Interior, Day (A Door Opens) at Depart Foundation, LA (8 October – 19 December, 2015, curated by Nicola Ricciardi). Horowitz  has photographed each page of an art catalogue by Phillips, the famous auction house in New York, having placed on the pages the residues of junk food. The artist’s book maintains the title, number of pages and orientation of the Phillips catalogue, and its cover, back and coast also coincide with the original. The yellow background on which the catalogue is posed creates a distance, even in time, between the action of the artist (put food on the catalogue and shoot a photograph) and the reader’s perception of the differing levels in the artwork.
