Keller, Daniel

For A Fish Tank Or A Parking Lot

“In his work, Keller examines connections between materials and materialities, architecture and architectural elements—in the real world as well as in models.FOR A FISH TANK OR A PARKING LOT is simultaneously a work of research, collection, and fiction. Keller researches the ecological and cultural significance of gravel and sand, which play a major role in the composition of the earth’s surface, at least in our latitudes, as valuable resources and important components of concrete. A photographic collection of pebbles—printed on almost translucent paper—forms the grid-like, even rigid structure of the book. With a focus on the different shapes and surfaces of the individual stones, the anonymous mass of this basic material of our built environment dissolves into countless individuals”, soft cover, 27 x 21,5 cm, 512 pages, St. Gallen 2018

Finnbogadóttir Hjörvar, Geirthrudur

Mind Games

“A quadrangled story about shades and variations in co-dependence and sovereignty, inspired by a musician (John Lennon), a theorist (Henri Lefebvre), an author (Halldór Laxness) and a demented ruler of Rome (Caligula). Mindgames is constituted by four parts – ordered in alternating sequence – to form thirteen chapters in total. Each of the four sections holds a biographical account of its subject: Caligula, Henri Lefebvre, John Lennon and Halldór Laxness. The chapters can be read separately, as they have been conceived to be independent wholes, forming biographies that present portraits of associations rather than particular statements about individual lives. The text, however, is constructed to alternate rhythmically between the main motives. The motives in turn produce variations on particular themes as they modulate into different parts within the totality of the work as a whole. Mindgames was conceived as a way to enjoy information in the tradition of autodidacts of the past – but in a style which is commingled with a reverence towards traditional modes of archiving the world.”, soft cover with dust jacket, 17 x 12 cm, 152 pages, (Arnhem) 2012
