Daata Editions has just announced the release of four new artworks by Sue de Beer specially commissioned for the platform.

This poem is me and it’s nothing but words about you I hope you like it (1 & 2)

(1 & 2)

Sue is a recent recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and is represented by Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York. Sue de Beer’s artwork release on Daata coincides with the LOOP Fair, Barcelona and Art Basel in June.

Khary Simon, a creative director and publisher based in New York, interviewed Sue de Beer on her 4 films for Daata Editions.

Are the films intended to be presented in a specific order?

No. They are separate but connected. I do watch them in the order of 1, 2, 3, 4. I cut them in the order of 1, 2, 3, 4. The first two naturally connect, and the last two naturally connect. So do 1 and 4. So do 2 and 3.

Is beauty fragile and or dangerous?

Yes. Fragile.

What about terror can be erotic or beautiful?

Everything.

Do you cherish objects of girlhood or wish we did?

Yes.

What is the origin of titles 1 and 2?

This poem is me
and it’s nothing but
words about you
I hope you like it

It’s from a Dennis Cooper poem – one that he contributed to my first catalogue. I think it’s beautiful. Shifts around the watcher and the watched.

Sue de Beer’s work is located at the intersection between film and installation, sculpture and photography. Solo exhibitions include the Kunst Werke, Berlin, the Whitney Museum of American Art at Altria, the MuHKA Museum in Antwerp, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions in Los Angeles, The Park Avenue Armory, New York, as well as at Marianne Boesky Gallery.

The artworks start from $200. http://daata-editions.com
