"It is important to note that Jarla Partilager, while not existing in an imaginary outside, has nothing in common with those highly personalized "instant-collections" (Clemens Krümmel) so typical for our new economy, so symptomatic of...structural transformation. The artists collected for Jarla Partilager are not instantly acquired, but collected in depth and over a long period of time."  —Isabelle Graw, "Where Are We Now?"

John Coplans, Hand, Three Panels, Vertical, 1990. Silver gelatin prints dry mounted on museum board, overall 308 cm x 118 cm

"One could say that in his works, Coplans affirms the possibility of an 'authentic artist's body' against all odds, although what we perceive to be his body is of course highly mediated and staged. The depiction of his seemingly authentic body also benefits from a tradition that makes it much easier for the male body not to be coerced by normative ideals of beauty."

  1. The weather was clear, so the view went replica watches sale on for miles. The white face of the Rolex Explorer II was never out of place. And I was very happy to use the 5mm easy link rolex replica uk extension to relieve my wrist after a hard day hiking under the sun. Like many of the modern Rolex sports watches, the Rolex Explorer II comes with the modern Oyster bracelet fully brushed (just like the replica watches sale Submariner), and it is just plain comfortable and screams high quality. The Rolex bracelets are, just rolex replica like any genuinely well engineered bracelet, adjustable with screws where one can remove full links or half links. Also, the bracelet tapers from 21mm at the lugs to 17mm at the oyster clasp, rolex replica sale thereby resulting in a highly wearable 42mm watch.
