Published by Art Ink in association with the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA), Paul Yore: WORD MADE FLESH is an expansive and exciting monograph on the work of one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists. The book brings together work and themes emergent from throughout Paul Yore’s career as well as new work, imagery and insights from his 2022 survey exhibition at ACCA, also titled WORD MADE FLESH.
The 416-page publication is an object that is comprehensive in its written content and deeply considered in its design. The design and materiality of the book directly responds to iconography, principles, materiality, histories and ideas that the artist explores in his practice. For example, the die-cut hole on the cover gestures a subversive perforation – the breaking and pushing of a medium – while internal pages thread together thought-provoking forms and ideas by layering drawings, images, colour, typography and scale to invite an active reading experience. Rich and detailed imagery of Yore’s multidisciplinary practice is accompanied by specially commissioned texts by leading Australian and international artists, scholars and commentators such as Tony Albert, hanna baer, Mikala Dwyer, Daniel Fountain, Helen Hughes and Bruce LaBruce. An extended interview with Paul Yore by Max Delany delves into the artist’s biography and provides further context to the references that are threaded through his practice to date.
