  • Fake/Function Thomas Schutte: Early Work ~ Teresa Gleadowe

    Published in Art Monthly, 1 December 2007

    ‘Fake/Function’ demonstrates Schutte’s exceptional ability to anticipate the conditions of the spaces in which his work will be seen and to incorporate those conditions into his work. It reminds us of his early preoccupation with the framework of the museum. The exhibition makes us conscious of how this mastery of context informs so much of Schutte’s subsequent work, from the celebrated commissions for Munster to the present sculpture for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square.

  • Thomas Schutte: “I would play piano if I could…” ~ Melissa Gronlund

    Published in ArtReview, December 2007 ( Issue 17 )

    Though Schütte rejected the idioms of Düsseldorf, he has retained its belief that art should bear a social conscience, and he has frequently addressed both recent German history and current concerns. At Documenta in 1992 Schütte showed Die Fremden (The Foreigners), ceramic lifesize figures shaped like lumpen vases, with downcast eyes and assorted luggage, which were placed around the German city of Kassel. The strike at debates about ‘Germanness’ was unmistakable, but the figures themselves were fragile, sad things, which looked as if the political message they carried had been forced upon them, much as a train delay, discrimination or change in immigration laws might be. Their bottom halves were shaped like urns, and they resembled legless ‘little people’ toy dolls – a meeting point of Schütte’s imagination and political realities.

  • Marlene Dumas ~ Sean O'Toole

    Published in Frieze, 29 November 2007

    Occasionally prostrated, Dumas’ dead are both generic and specific, at once recalling the nameless humanity of Iraq and the now derelict tropes of painting.
    Yet, scattered amongst the many bodies displayed on Dumas’ first solo exhibition in her native South Africa, there is a sampling of cherished subjects, ‘Intimate Relations’ as the title of this overdue survey reminds us.

  • Ingrid Calame: The Skid Stays in the Picture ~ Rachel Somerstein

    Published in ArtNews, November 2007 ( 56 )

    Colored-pencil drawings resemble topographical maps or aerial views of winding, disorganized cities like Rome. The enamel-on-aluminium works are based on the drawings and recall action paintings, but with a digitized, almost pixelated effect.

    Published in Art in American, November 2007

    ...Calame’s ambitious goal of merging high and low, infinite and infinitesimal, and arbitrary and intentional saves her work from being derivative.

  • Ingrid Calame: Stop Your Engines! The Artist Is Tracing ~ Dorothy Spears

    Seeking to record “evidence of people” Ms. Calame began tracing stains in public places; at a church in her hometown; at the New York Stock Exchange; at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, on random streets and sidewalks.
