Simon Fujiwara: 1982, London 2012

Simon Fujiwara: 1982

Miguel Amando Tate Publishing Published to coincide with a major exhibition of Fujiwara’s work at Tate St Ives, this text is closer to an artist’s book than a conventional exhibition catalogue. With the appearance of a desk diary, the sort that wouldn’t be out of place in Edina Monsoon’s office, 1982 features novels, theatre plays, lectures and installations. In a move that is refreshingly unlike the typical text you might find in a gallery bookshop, Fujiwara’s selection of fictional curiosities gives valuable insight into the young British/Japanese artist’s motivations. Particularly joyful is the reproduction of The Mirror Stage, Fujiwara’s 2009-12 performance and installation that dramatises the artist’s adolescent encounter with a Patrick Heron painting at Tate St Ives in 1993. For the traditionalists out there, this step away from convention is sugar coated by the “supplement” in the back of the book – a shorter version of the traditional exhibition catalogue complete with an “In Conversation” between the artist and Martin Clark. Such a move does dampen the revolutionary spirit of the publication slightly. Florence Wright

Simon Fujiwara: The Incest Museum. A guide, Berlin 2008

The Museum of Incest is an ongoing project initiated by Simon Fujiwara in 2008. Subtitled “An erotic survey of civilization from ape to man and back again”, this architectural project is composed of a fictive institution that explores the erotic origins of man, while proposing incest as part of man’s ancestry. The publication is a guide to the museum, including a discussion of the fictive museum’s architecture, curatorial features, and the works presented in it. It is based on a performance-lecture realized by Fujiwara.
