The Blue One Comes In Black offers a new contribution to the thinking around Liz Magor's long standing practice by gathering newly commissioned critical texts and creative writing, as well as texts by the artist herself, some of which were previously unpublished.This book not only highlights important works from throughout Magor's career but also present her latest work for the first time in a publication form.
“This is not a picture to show how things are. It's a proposal as to how we connect to what matters and how it comes to matter. It's one of the vital intuitions Liz Magor could be understood to advance in her work: bodies, souls, memories and matter interconnect in peculiar ways and activating this connection may be more strikingly simple than many would believe”.
Jan Verwoert
