77 and/or 58 and/with 19 is a book of texts for seventy-seven artworks by Darren Bader. Each text is a certificate text issued to an owner of the artist’s work. Sometimes generative of an artwork, sometimes delimiting its use/display, the certificates are integral to Bader’s practice with their language echoing the sensitivity and wit of his exhibitions. The publication collects these certificate texts for works from throughout the artist’s career. Images only appear when texts refer to specific photographs.
