Julio Le Parc : Drawings and Games
This publication is released in conjunction with Julio Le Parc s exhibition at the Serpentine Galleries in London (25 November 2014 15 February 2015). It presents, for the first time, Le Parc s unseen series of drawings and sketches, making evident the links between his (light) installations and his drawings. The book also includes a new poem by Le Parc: Written for the book originally in Spanish, Mano, no me olvides (Hand, Don t Forget Me) reflects the idea of freehand drawings presented within the publication. The poem is also a reference to the role that artists may play in social engagement. Writer and filmmaker Edgardo Cozarinsky contributes to the publication with a fictional interview between Le Parc and the late Italian artist Lucio Fontana. Between 1943 and 1946 Fontana was Le Parc s professor at the Académie des Beaux-Arts and the text links their practices, references art movements that influenced them and situates Le Parc s work in a wider historical context.
