Creatures of Comfort New York is pleased to present No More Reality, a temporary bookshop and exhibition organized by Textfield, Inc. The bookshop and exhibition will take place in Creatures of Comfort’s adjacent project space at 205 Mulberry St.

In conjunction with the bookshop, which will feature current and archived titles from Textfield Distribution, there will be an exhibition of work by artists that Jonathan Maghen has collaborated with through Textfield to realize various publishing projects. The exhibition will feature the works of Phil Chang, Arthur Ou, Eduardo Sarabia, and Anna Sew Hoy.

The bookshop and exhibition title have been appropriated from the Philippe Parreno work, No More Reality (the demonstration), 1991, which is a four-minute video of children demonstrating, and chanting the slogan and title (“No More Reality”).

Keith Bormuth’s The Occasion of Fracture traces the notion that media fulfills itself in a phatic relationship to knowledge. Following a ghost image of Reyner Banham’s seminal text on Los Angeles, Bormuth melds the on-screen laughter of the 1940s Hollywood star Irene Dunne with the show Gossip Girl, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s posthumously published The Crack Up, and the cameo appearance by Georges Bataille as a priest in Jean Renoir’s film Partie de Campagne. Composed in 11 themes, the text seeks to fracture the semblance images have as things.
