Blasting Mats


Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show held September 10 - October 23, 2021. Essay by Saim Demircan, edited by Cooke Maroney. Six page gatefold catalogue featuring photographs of Richard Prince's sculptures on site in Rennselaerville, NY with essay printed on verso. Housed in a white envelope with colophon on the interior. "Blasting mats, for those unfamiliar, are heavy-duty mats stitched together from pieces of car tire, devised to catch flyrock from controlled explosions. Fifteen years ago, Richard Prince started making work from disused blasting mats, suspending them from customized frames at his studio in Rensselaerville. A trio of these sculptures, 'Untitled (Blasting Mats)' (2006) are transposed to a gallery for the first time. They hang, slumped and heavy, from metal I-beams, structures with unforgiving, murderous associations." -- from the essay by Saim Demircan.
