Der im Zusammenhang mit der Ausstellung der Stiftung Schloss und Park Benrath herausgegebene Katalog zeigt Objekte und Rauminstallationen des Konzept- und Performancekünstlers James Lee Byars. Als kongenialer Betrachter erweist sich der Fotograf Claudio Abate, der in der Architektur des Ausstellungsortes subtil die Idee erspürt, den Linien perfekter Achsen folgt und den Dialog von Raum und Kunstwerk fotografisch umsetzt. Der Formenkanon Byars' Skulpturen sieht Kuben, Kugeln, Zylinder, Pyramiden und Sterne vor, die sinnbildlichen Wert haben. Auch Materialien und Farben, vor allem weißer Marmor, Samt, Schwarz und Rot, sollen die semantische Ebene betonen. Mit dem 'Goldgrund' verband Byars das Unberührbare, das Absolute oder das Spirituelle, das die perfekte Form, die Kugel, visuell überhöhte

I cancel all my works at death by James Lee Byars( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Titled after James Lee Byars' famous proclamation, 'Triple candie's i cancel all my works at death' posits that Byars and his work are better misremembered than reexperienced. Triple Candie is a fugitive institution operated by two art historians that produces exhibitions "about art but devoid of it" that are realized without the involvement of artists. This book includes documentation of the exhibition as well as two recollections (by the artist's teenage sweetheart and a late-life acquaintance), essays on creative reconstruction and Byars' relationship to Detroit, a conversation between Triple Candie and a lawyer on the legal ramifications of artistic cancelation, and an assortment of quotes by Radiohead, Ivor Cutler and others that have nothing and everything to do with Byars and this show. The book is available in two different dust jackets. Exhibition: Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit, USA (2014)
