An Intricate Game of References, Symbols, and Signs

The first monograph about the Italian-British artist Seb Patane (b. Catania, Italy 1970) offers solid insight into an oeuvre that since the late-1990s has consistently ventured a fresh perspective on a great variety of possible constructions of identity. Patane graduated from Goldsmiths in 2002 and soon earned critical acclaim for his work across a diverse range of media including video, sculpture, performance, and collage. His work shifts back and forth between abstraction and figuration, between the suggestion of narrative and its un-doing as fragmented form, but there is a consistent and driving charge to his output throughout the past ten years that seems to be to do with a repeated and compulsive return—whether in two or three dimensional work—to certain archetypal images, like the figures in the Patrons paper series, four large screenprints on found clothes patterns.

On the occasion of the exhibition in Mulhouse, France, his first monograph will be published in DISTANZ Verlag including texts by Heike Munder, Bettina Steinbrügge, Catherine Wood and Rob Young.
