Item description for Eva Weinmayr & Gustav Metzger: Water Found on Mars (Emanating) by Florian Matzner Eva Weinmayr...
Eva Weinmayr works with leftovers, fragments of information. For years she has been collecting Evening Standard "teaser bills"--the abbreviated and exaggerated handwritten posters that hawk London's daily papers--and re-creating them as art. Her title piece, "Water Found on Mars," is in good company with "Sex Claims Rock Arnie," "Cigarettes Beer Wine Up," "Asteroid on Earth Collision Course" and "Hollywood Stars Split." Weinmayr's media, including prints and enamel, are largely traditional, while her concerns with news and the forms in which people receive it couldn't be more topical. In a fragmentary and associative text, fellow artist Gustav Metzger reflects on her work and documents the ongoing dialogue between their very different artistic positions, both of which focus on social processes. This beautifully designed book succeeds in capturing the dialogue between their work and the exhilarating tension underlying it.
