Andy Boot. Backgrounds, Surfaces and Landscapes
Andy Boot Künstlerbuch mit Texten von Michele D’Aurizio und Chris Sharp. "The title of this book purports to present three distinct parts of seeing, three distinct zones or planes integral to the organization of an image."
"As if each part could be localised and individually demarcated as independent, albeit no less contingent upon the other. Background. Surface. Landscape. Like a puzzle, how do all these pieces fit together?" Chris Sharp
“Just as Duchamp once asked himself if it was possible to make a work of art that was not a work of art, the Vienna-based Australian artist Andy Boot asks, all but rhetorically, not to mention paradoxically, if it is possible to make an image that is not an image. Indeed, what constitutes an image now that we live in the labyrinth of images? What is its current zero degree? And how is that determined? Or perhaps better yet, legislated?” Chris Sharp
