RECENT PUBLICATIONS, REVIEWS & ARTICLES


Musée Magazine, New York
"I've dropped too many hard-drives in my time [...] your relationship to permanence changes radically with each catastrophic memory failure." Interview with Andrea Blanch, July 2016 [Link]

New York Times
In an effort to depict the magnitude of the universe, the Belgian artist Mishka Henner made Astronomical, a scale model of the solar system in  the form of a 12-volume, 6,000-page artist book. With the sun on Page 1 and Pluto on Page 6,000, and the width of each page equivalent to a million kilometers in space, the work, completed in 2011, contains page after page of blackness. “When you finally come to a planet, it’s just a speck. In this context, it’s almost possible to get your head around it,” Ms. Lombino said, emphasizing the word “almost.” Seeing the Heavens With Paint, Pencil and Cocaine, Susan Hodara, 4 June 2016 [Link]
