Water Found on Mars

Eva Weinmayr, Gustav Metzger, Water Found On Mars, Ostfildern, Hatje Cantz 2006

Synopsis: Artist Eva Weinmayr, who works with abandoned materials, images and fragments of the information society is primarily interested in language. For years she has been collecting Evening Standard billboards– those abbreviated and exaggerated posters hawking the headlines of the day – and using them as a starting point for her work. In a fragmentary and associative text Gustav Metzger reflects on Weinmayr's three recent bodies of work and documents the ongoing dialogue between their different practises focussing on social processes. This artists' book - edited by Florian Matzner and designed by Zylvia Auerbach - succeeds in capturing this fleeting dialogue and the tensions underlying it.
