Corin Hewitt: Seven Performances

SEVENPauthor AA.VV., publisher Mousse, 1° edition, 334 pp., size 16.5 x 22.7 cm, 2014

Corin Hewitt’s performative installations use exhibition spaces as sites for production. Integrating process and display strategies, Hewitt offers viewers the simultaneous encounter of an artwork and the action that brought it to be. This book, published after the artist’s exhibition at MOCA Cleveland, brings together the documentation of seven installations, produced from 2007 up to the 2013, including preparatory sketches, process shots, exhibition documentation, and discrete photographic works. This visual mass helps understand Hewitt’s practice as a continuum of interconnected actions and materializations, instances of generative discovery and contextual play.
