Kahn & Selesnick, the Greenman of Ooms pond

Greenman of Ooms Pond, 2019
6" x 6", Ed. 50
$250 + tax & shipping

This never-been-exhibited image is being offered by Kahn & Selesnick and Lux Art Institute in a limited edition of 50 prints to help support the ongoing exhibition, Truppe Fledermaus.

The Greenman is a constant in the works of Kahn & Selesnick, acting as a benevolent spirit that helps to rewild the Earth and duplicate beauty through the magic of plants and water. The Greenman of Ooms Pond presents two vessels as a scale, balancing birth and rebirth–also acting as a representation of the two artists as collaborators. As the Greenman rises from the waters, so does the microcosms of each vessel. The roses act as symbols for communication across time and space–a prescient topic for the current state of our globe.

The print will be shipped to your address directly from the artists. Price does not include sales tax or shipping.

Against a backdrop of ecological decline, this memoir/travelogue follows an itinerant theatrical troupe, Truppe Fledermaus, as they stage absurdist performances in various locations including Europe, America, and Japan. In these performances the Truppe are as apt to commemorate the passing of an unusual cloud as they are to be found documenting their own attempts to flee the rising waters of a warming planet or using black humor to comment on the extinction of bats and other animals.

The book, whose physical design format is modeled on Ukiyo-e series such as Hiroshige’s One Hundred Views of Edo, contains photographs of the Truppe, their travels, and their performances with corresponding text narrating the images. It is the author’s preference to have the pages of the book be loose and non-linear so that readers can explore the images and story in any order they prefer. As the incidents related in the book are frequently based on the artist’s personal experiences and travels, the reader is led to speculate about the somewhat arbitrary manner in which we build narratives out of our own experiences.

104 unbound pages in a band and slipcase, published by Candela Books.
