The Red Sun is High, the Blue Low
1st Edition, 2023
The Red Sun is High, the Blue Low, a book published on the occasion of Gray Wielebinski’s solo exhibition of the same name at the ICA. Part artist’s book, part discursive response, the publication is a textual and archival collage of the cross-pollination of cultural and political themes of the exhibition, with essays by Seresin, Larne Abse Gogarty and Maxi Wallenhorst – exploring things as varied as the sun, public toilets, Don DeLillo, Mike Kelley and trans poetics – and a visual narrative compiled from the Library of Congress. “I am interested in focusing on and sitting within the pre-apocalyptic, and the accompanying feelings of paranoia, waiting and unknowing,” said Wielebinski at the time of the exhibition, which explored anxiety-inducing themes of life under late capitalism, the pandemic, and encroaching climate change.
