RES (Raul Stolkiner); Gonzalez, Valeria; Sylveira, Danila & Otero, Veronica (Contributors). RES: EL JUICIO, LO ABYECTO Y LA PATA DE PALO ("THE TRIAL, THE ABJECT, AND THE FOOT POLE") : THE CENTRO CULTURAL RECOLETA RETROSPECTIVE EXHIBITION CATALOG. Buenos Aires, Argentina: Centro Cultural Recoleta, 2009. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. Fine.

Retrospective Exhibition Catalog. One of the most important and comprehensive books on the photographic art of RES. The first and only edition. Published in a very small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The catalog is now rare. A brilliant production by RES and the Centro Cultural Recoleta: Regular-sized volume format. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and photo-tableaux by RES. Essays by various contributors. Printed on glossy stock paper in Buenos Aires to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark retrospective exhibition of the same name held at the Centro Cultural Recoleta in 2009. Presents, in an accessible and lovely collectible format, the cerebral photographic art of the artist known simply as RES (his real name is Raul Stolkiner). "The rich and varied work of contemporary photographer RES includes his series 'Intervalos Intermitentes', in which he creates diptychs out of photographs of individuals taken across a lapse of time; 'Conatus', in which he restages iconic Renaissance and Baroque images; and 'Plantas Vestidas', in which plants are dressed with clothes" (Publisher's blurb). A revered cult figure in his native Argentina, RES is one of the most intelligent and imaginative living artist/photographers. His work can only be described as reflective and intellectual, without losing any of art's sensuous, even tactile qualities. Challenging at first, it will reward repeated and immersive viewings. Being exposed to, understanding, and appreciating his work is one of the life-changing experiences a student/lover of art photography will have. An absolute "must-have" title for RES collectors. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Retrospective Exhibition Catalog available online and despite its imperfection (slight rubbing on the glossy softcovers) is still in especially fine condition: Every internal page is clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the most brilliant living artist/photographers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER RES TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). $40.00
