Recent Print Publications
We have recently launched a new publications catalogue. Designed by Julie Jeon, the catalogue outlines Enjoy's publications dating back to 2005. Contact the Publications Manager if you have any queries regarding sales and distribution.
Enjoy is very proud to announce the third and final artist book for 2012, Sometime later, by Alice Baxter. Sometime later explores an interest in how an art work can exist as myth or ritual. By delving into a very sited act, such as a pilgrimage to a monument, Baxter’s work investigates the function of our own investment into the notion of the ‘significant moment’. This new publication by Alice Baxter and Enjoy also features contributions from Ella Sutherland and Sophie Thorn. The book further extrapolates Baxter’s interest in the audience's interaction with the art object and provides information on the chemical processes that take place with the act of touching bronze. Printed on a risograph in Canterbury, the book carries with it the same appreciation of tactility that is evident in her recent exhibition at Enjoy.
Limited edition of 60, available through Enjoy for $15.

Vacuum Idle Adjustment: Robert Hood and Tahi Moore
ISBN 978-0-473-14797-6. Published May 2009. ED Paula Booker, Designer Hannah Ngaei
Hot off the press, the catalogue Vacuum Idle Adjustment: Robert Hood and Tahi Moore is published subsequent to the eponymous exhibition curated by Siv B. Fjaerestad, exhibited at Enjoy Public Art Gallery 7-21 June 2008.
"It's going to have videos. And cars ..." The pairing of Robert Hood and Tahi Moore promised something slightly boyish, coupled with the deadpan, creeping, dry wit both artists are known for.
Edited by Paula Booker and featuring essays by Kristen Wineera, Harold Grieves, Tahi Moore and Rudolph Hudsucker, Vacuum Idle Adjustment looks critically at the exhibition described as 'brilliant minds gone amok' - and more widely at the artists' practices and the ideas raised by what is now a critically aclaimed body of work.
