Gordon Matta-Clark: CP138

"Scholars delve into the CCA’s Matta-Clark archive, expanding the scope of the artist’s endlessly generative oeuvre  This book unpacks the comprehensive Gordon Matta-Clark collection at the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CP138) in Montreal, opening it up to provisional readings from various perspectives. Yann Chateigné reorganizes Matta-Clark’s library into areas of inquiry, from alchemy to psychoanalysis, as a framework for gathering traces?—written and drawn?—of his thinking. Hila Peleg reassembles hours of discarded film footage, challenging the notion of documentation and returning to view the physical and social contexts?—the relational space?—of Matta-Clark’s interventions. And from hundreds of travel photographs, Kitty Scott constructs a panorama of Matta-Clark’s visual notes on the world around him?—a foil to his artworks."
