    Certain Things

    Certain things is the first book to present the work of Chiara Camoni from the outset until today. It gathers artworks, the artists’ writings, and texts commissioned for the occasion—images and voices that, following Chiara’s own way of working, can be linked in a similar way to the stars in a constellation.

JOSEPH KOSUTH
Colour in Contextual Play. An installation by Joseph Kosuth, works by Enrico Castellani, Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Joseph Kosuth, Piero Manzoni


An artist’s book and exhibition catalog at the same time, elegant and precious, designed by the founder of Conceptual Art. It serves as a visual analysis of the conceptual structures that interrogate the nature of color, form, space, and time, where the works and writings of Post-war artists such as Castellani, Fontana, Manzoni, and Klein, converse with Kosuth’s statements, and the theoretical as well as personal account of curator Cornelia Lauf.

PIERO GOLIA
The Painter


The Painter—or what you might call a robot—improvises like an actor, generating unexpected narratives whilst nevertheless fulfilling a sort of choreography. Its creator, artist Piero Golia, directs and “speaks” unseen from under the stage, and remains more interested in the possibilities that the whole set may provide. In the same way, rather than a record, this book acts as a multiplier of narratives.

ELISABETTA BENASSI
It Starts With the Firing


A public dispute about the value of contemporary art and its reception has inspired the creation of It Starts With the Firing by Elisabetta Benassi. This artist’s book reactivates a controversy which took place in 1970s London and affected the Tate Galleries’ collecting strategies—in particular, the acquisition of Equivalent VIII, a work by minimalist artist Carl Andre made in firebrick.

The artist has painted every single room and detail of the building with a pigment called ultramarine blue, extracted from the precious lapislazzuli—originally from the Middle East, and more expensive than gold. The distorted and suffocating reality of the cloak envelops the spectator in the seven floors of the building.

CHIARA CAMONI
Certain Things


Sometimes the expression of thought through visual form becomes a necessity, coinciding with basic needs—albeit very complex. For artist Chiara Camoni, encountering the mystery of creation is a practice as necessary as eating and drinking, or going for a walk on a sunny day. Her works are linked to the idea of flow and fusion with a simple and basic daily dimension in which the current of daily life freezes to a halt and emerges in meaningful and autonomous forms. Chiara’s works can be created just about anywhere, more often than not in her kitchen; at times, with the assistance of friends and relatives who happen to pass by, all members of what can be called her extended studio.

ALEX KATZ, VINCENT KATZ
Katz Katz


This publication, edited by Enzo Cucchi and published by NERO, gathers drawings by Alex Katz and words by Vincent Katz. It is a project that takes shape through the intimate relationship between the three subjects.

All the drawings are risograph printings of both original sketches for paintings and the artist’s exercises. Two smaller inserts present, on the front, woodcuts showing portraits of two Katz, father and son, conceived by Enzo Cucchi, and on the back two poems by Vincent Katz, one of which is dedicated to Enzo Cucchi.
