A Fair to Meddling Story

Nick Mauss, Ken Okiishi - A Fair to Meddling Story
The book contains drawings and collages by Nick Mauss and stills from videos by Ken Okiishi. The images form a kind of associative narrative through the book, containing subjects as lost places, singled-out figures, book covers, and typographic elements.
The diverse artistic practice of Nick Mauss (born 1980 in New York, lives and works in New York and Berlin) encompasses drawing, sculpture and performance along with some curatorial projects that he initiated in the last years. Mauss' oeuvre is characterized by a perpetual state of indeterminacy, in a need of thinking about drawing and painting in an expansive sense. His work is a premeditated confusion where definitive shapes and forms are overlooked in favor of ambiguous semblances.
Born 1978 in Ames, Iowa, Ken Okiishi lives and works in New York and Berlin.
Edited by Axel Wieder.
Text by John Johnston.
