The Tractor Run Plate

Erica Van Horn

2016

25 signed, numbered and boxed fired porcelaine plates imitating the original paper plate. 210mm diameter... It began with a lot of old tractors being pulled out of barns and cleaned up for the day. A few of these machines get daily use as they are driven to and from the village for messages or Mass. Now there is a lot of excitement about seeing old tractors. Now they are called Vintage. Weeks are spent preparing and cleaning the tractors for The Tractor Run. I was trapped in the village this morning when the tractors set off, so I watched the entire procession as it lumbered away. I had no choice. The road was blocked. The Tractor Run headed to Ardfinnan. Its itinerary included a winding route back by way of other roads. The Run was long and it was slow. There was no music. It was simply a ponderous, ungainly procession through country lanes. People at the few houses came out to wave. It was all being done for charity. It was for a good cause. Each year the Tractor Run has grown. Everyone wants to be involved. Shiny new tractors have joined in. Later, I found a paper plate with the number 27 written in black marker. There were two little holes in the center. Numbered paper plates had been tied with string into the radiator grill of each tractor.

Nymphaes 1968 – 2015

Simon Cutts

2016

Treated gate-folds with coloured endpapers printed digitally 80 x 180mm casebound. 120 numbered copies. In order that the Water Lilies might be accommodated in the Musée de l’Orangerie in 1927, the paintings had to be worked in sections. For the purposes of instantaneous tonal perception, Monet painted false seams onto the canvas, thus rendering the exact seams indistinguishable. What was made as an astute gesture on the part of Monet, becomes upon further reflection an irony of the whole theoretical aims of the Impressionist movement : a spectator is made used to seams. Camouflages. Gemma Three, London 1968-1972

A Short Essay on Ephemera

Simon Cutts

2015

A Short Essay on Ephemera began as a response to initial questions posed by Steven Leiber for his book Extra Art : A Survey of Artists' Ephemera from 1960 - 1999 held at CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Art in San Francisco in 2001, and later at the ICA London. The essay became more developed as Some Coracle Ephemera, for Some Forms of Availability, RGAP and Granary Books 2007. The form here is that of a parallel-lined spiral, a typographical structure made by Colin Sackett in 2011. This was made for a cardboard drinks mat entitled A Beverage Coaster for the Ephemera Dealer Steven Leiber from the Bay Area, but never fully issued in that form. An edition of 25 porcelain plates, 25cm in diameter.
