This collection of interviews with Los Angeles artist Paul Sietsema by prominent writers and curators was published on the occasion of his first solo museum exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel 2012. The aesthetics of Sietsema s practice result from the translation of visual information between mediums like the presentation of his sculptures and paintings on film rather than in their original media. These discursive texts consider issues central to the artist s work, including the perception of present time and the relationship of materials
to form. Stills from newly produced films and reproductions of paintings and works on paper continue Sietsema s ongoing investigation into the mechanics of knowledge within image culture. With interviews by Andrew Berardini, Gintaras.
