'Do we actually want the future to be totally unlike the present, or only a little bit different? This is just one of the pressing questions that Kurant's works raise. Some of her work invokes a world of little differences, small tricks, magic sticks, cloud busters, barking birds, bubbles from a black box, and exits as entrances. Others examine the big picture of the future: global politics in the year 2020 as presented by the authoritative voice of the New York Times, a future issue that Kurant meticulously prepared with the professional help of clairvoyant Krzysztof Jackowski and several Times journalists. In a sense, her big-picture works speak less about the small differences of the near future than the potential for absolute difference--events after which the world might never be the same again ...' --Jan Verwoert ---------- In 'Ready Unmade,' a piece commissioned by the frieze art fair, Kurant further explores the thin line between fiction and reality, purposelessness and function: the artist presents a trio of trained parrots that have been taught to use an alternative language. Both a reflection on nature behaving unnaturally and a caricature of the zoo-like atmosphere of the art fair and the self-reflexive communication of the art world. Referring to two similar but unrealized projects by other artists, Kurant also questions the notions of copyright and the marketplace. ------------------ Designed by Kasia Korczak & Boy Vereecken, the book includes sections printed with photochromic ink, a pop-up, and a poster cut into separate pages.
