Lee Lozano: Lozano Tools (RARE)


Member Price
Lee Lozano: Lozano Tools is a a rare, out-of-print book of the artist's drawings from the years 1963–1964. In these early works, Lozano (United States, 1930–1999) subjects tools screwdrivers and bolts, staple guns and hammers, to violent aesthetic scrutiny, she fleshes out these objects' manifest chauvinist sexuality into a wildly disinhibited reinterpretation.

In Lozano's hands, screws are no longer a neutral means to hang a painting or set a bookshelf but rather explicit euphemisms of sexist logic: anthropomorphized machines aggressively screwing in and out of each other in acts of overdetermined functionality, regardless of pain or pleasure.

Essay by Sabine Folie.
