Olivier Mosset, Diamond
This edition of lithographs has been produced by JRP|Editionsin collaboration with MAMCO Geneva as part of Olivier Mosset’s retrospective. The inks used for printing are thermochemical and change color from 27 degrees Celsius. The red diamond becomes yellow, the brown becomes orange, and the green becomes light green. These lithographs play with the most recognizable elements of Olivier Mosset’s practice: a geometrical form and a monochrome surface, each instilled with a transformational element.

116 cm x 76 cm (45.67 in. x 29.92 in.) on BFK Rives 300 g. paper.

“Landscape Growth Panel” is an image of the life process through very simple iconography: the radiant sun and a growing flower. There isn’t a traditional horizon line to situate the “landscape”. Instead I think of it as a collapsed and schematic space where the sky, the ground and the material of the image itself all fuse together in another space. The bas-relief effect is a non-digital imitation of digital rendering tools, whose geometric illusionism in turn derives from decorative techniques that are thousands of years old”. Greg Parma Smith on the lithography, 2019.
Lithograph 5 colors printed with Marinoni lithographic press, hand cut. Sold unframed.

Chanel Yeti Boots, 2019
In this new production, published with JRP|Editions, Sylvie Fleury substitutes denim for painter’s canvas and uses a motif that reminds the incessant recycling of fashion, where a 1970s accessory is revived as an object of desire after decades of eclipse. Halfway between the world of clothing and the memory of Pop art, this new edition is also a wink in the shape of feminist customization.

In his work, John M. Armleder uses references that recall art history as well as popular culture. For years, he has recycled decorative elements evoking the Christmas celebration and organized an "X-mas Party" within the framework of his record label, founded with his son and Sylvie Fleury, Villa Magica Records.
On occasion of the 2018 "X-mas Party," Print Them All realized with MAMCO a Christmas edition. In this lithograph, Armleder uses two comic characters from the 1950s: Eega Beeva and Marvin the Martian, as motifs repeated on a gradient-colored background. Space or time travelers these figures hint to reflexions on evolution, the future, and alien forms of life that never ceased to haunt our culture.
Printed with the classical know-how of Idem in Paris, this edition exists in 4 versions: Black & Yellow Edition, Orange & Blue Edition, Blue & Pink Edition, Purple & White Edition.
At the end of the 1970s, Peter Saville started conceiving record covers with pared-back designs, often associated with a postmodern typography. The ones for Joy Division or New Order have become iconic. Since 2001, he has been working with the Berlin-born artist Anna Blessmann. Together, they produce works mingling design and Conceptual art. In 2013, for the exhibition In Course of Arrangement at the Paul Stolper Gallery, they made a series of Plexiglas signs, using the specific, informative language of museums: “object temporarily on loan,” “object removed for conservation,” etc. While highlighting the exhibition processes around artworks, these pieces also incited the visitors to examine the very notion of a collection and possession.
Specially produced for MAMCO, and used on its premises, this sign transforms any space into a museum room in course of arrangement!
Limited edition of 100 copies presented in a black cardboard box, and containing:
Engraved and inked neon yellow Plexiglas, 21 x 15 cm
In his work, John M Armleder uses references that recall art history as well as popular culture. For years, he has recycled decorative elements evoking the Christmas celebration and organized an X-mas Party within the framework of his record label, founded with his son and Sylvie Fleury, Villa Magica Records. On occasion of the 2017 X-mas Party, MAMCO realized with Print Them All a Christmas edition. In this lithograph, Armleder uses Alf as motif repeated in various color combinations. Alf is the central character of a TV-series broadcasted between 1986 and 1990, in which an alien life form lands in an American suburb and gets adopted by a family. Printed with the classical know-how of Idem in Paris, this edition exists in three versions:
In a 118 x 78 cm format, available on the website of JRP|Editions (99 variations)
In a 109 x 74 cm format, on BFK Rives TAN and BFK Rives Gris, both versions available at MAMCO (12 variations of each)
Each copy is dated, signed, and numbered by artist and, through a system of color variations, rendered different from the other prints.
In 1993, in a building abandoned on the Syros Island in Greece, Martin Kippenberger founded MOMAS, a virtual and utopian museum. This short-lived space was a critical parody of museum institutions.
In reference to this project, Martin Kippenberger created MOMAS Hiking, a cast iron plate sealed into the ground at the entrance of MAMCO which looks like an orientation table. Instead of a landscape view, he put on the symbol of the Syros Museum: his famous “Christ-like frog.” With this plate, he wanted to make visible an imaginary path between two museums separated by 2254 km.
