N.E. Thing Co.: Companies Act (Volume 1)
(1000 items available)
Described by cofounder Iain Baxter as a “compendium of company ideas,” this title is perhaps the most crucial bookwork by the seminal, Vancouver-based conceptual art group, N.E. Thing Co. Assembled by Jean-Christophe Ammann of Kunsthalle Basel, it comprised a near-complete visual archive of the unparalleled creative practice of Iain and Ingrid Baxter as the N.E. Thing Company.N.E. Thing Co. was a Vancouver-based conceptual art group run by copresidents Iain and Ingrid Baxter. The “company” acted as a vehicle that interrogated art, domestic systems, corporate strategies and everyday life through the use of photography, information technology and installation-based works.Due to N.E. Thing Co.’s small runs, this work is particularly scarce. Originally published in an edition of 500, this facsimile second edition makes Companies Act accessible for the first time in over 40 years.
