Included here are a number of rare and out of print publications from Hamish Fulton, Dennis Oppenheim, Stanley Brouwn, Jan Dibbets, Ian Hamilton Finlay and others that explore – through text and images – the landscape as a site and source for conceptual practice. Stanley Brouwn’s first conceptual artist book ‘Tatvan’ from 1970 traces the artist’s visit to a town in Turkey by the same name. In place of photographs showing the rail line extension, Brouwn has filled each page with a simple equation. The numbers at first suggest a concrete distance Brouwn may have measured out in the course of his journey, though they soon grow exponentially into near impossible sums. (ie. x – Tatwan 1000 000 000 000 000 000 000 km). Dennis Oppenheim’s Flower Arrangement for Bruce Nauman was published as part of the Multiples, Inc “Artists & Photographs” box set. The accordion fold book offers a playful nod to Nauman’s photographic ‘flour’ arrangements from 1966. The expansive panorama features the same repeating image of flowers and trees. From Hamish Fulton, an accordion-fold book recounts an eight day walk through central Saskatchewan by the artist, revealing a panoramic view of Lake Ajawaan with red and white four-letter words overlaying the image. Published by Art Metropole, 1987.
