Tauba Auerbach
[2, 3]. Geometric Pop Up Book.

2011

$8,500

About

AUERBACH, Tauba. [2, 3]. Six separate volumes, each illustrated with one cut-out pop-up figure. Folio, 527 x 419 mm. Each volume bound in different brightly-coloured boards. Laid into in publisher's blue cloth slipcase. New York: Printed Matter, Inc., 2011. A new, innovative and original artist's book. This cutting-edge experiment in bookmaking explores volume and 3D space in book format. It is the creative idea of art sensation Tauba Auerbach, a California-born artist active in a number of media, including painting, sculpture, photography and artist's books. Her work is deeply influenced by mathematics and physics. Auerbach's [2,3] joins company with Olafur Eliasson's Your House, as one of the most original and imaginative examples thus far in twenty-first century book-making. The six parts are entitled: Pyramid, Sphere, Cubearc, Mobius, Gem and Ziggurat. The sheet accompanying the work (representing the text) states: "[2,3] is the mathematical term for the closed interval between two and three. Each of these objects animates the transition between two and three dimensions." Although the edition was 1000, the book was unfortunately published shortly before Hurricane Sandy. The publisher's storage space was inundated with flood waters and the bulk of the edition was destroyed, making the few copies that were dispersed pre-Hurricane Sandy hard to locate. There were also 85 artist's proofs. The work is accompanied by a card with publishing details and colophon, which is signed by Auerbach. Number 465 of 1,000. A mint copy.
