Simon Evans: Toward where the daisies are

Partner in crime with mono.kultur for long and host to interviews with Cyprien Gaillard and Tilda Swinton, my favorite Elodie Evers just edited the first comprehensive monograph of Simon Evans’ unique artistic practice over the past 15 years.

Evans’ intensely worked drawings and collages were long known only to a small circle of curators and artists; essays by Elodie Evers, Jens Hoffmann, Anders Kold, Will Self and Dana Ward, an interview with Jacob Fabricius, and more than 120 color illustrations now shed light on the artist’s oeuvre. It examines Evans’ idiosyncratic collage technique, his diaristic notes and strategies as well as the influence of literature on his art. Printed in Germany by Kerber Verlag.

Following 2013’s European touring exhibition First We Make the Rules, Then We Break the Rules (with Öyvind Fahlström) and the artist’s first North American survey at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland, Evans’ latest gallery exhibition, Edible Landscape, is hanging at James Cohan Gallery in New York through March 22, 2014.

Available in all good bookstores and here.
