Message from the Exterior

Temporarily out of stock. Pre-order now. Next shipment will be in May.

Message from the Exterior explores the ruins and remains of failed attempts to live in the desert’s harsh environments, depicting abandoned houses – small, often eccentric huts, both humorous and a little forlorn. Ruwedel examines the desert regions east of Los Angeles as a palimpsest of cultural and natural histories, presenting an inventory of a particular, and poignant, form of vernacular architecture; each structure might be read as a clue to the lives of anonymous individuals, and the impulse to create a home in the wilderness, however transitory. The first section, 'Desert Houses', comprises 68 desert structures, while the second section, ‘Dusk’, presents houses photographed after the sun had disappeared over the horizon, now rendered in subdued, dusky tones that suggest both present and absence, and the weight of isolation.

Mark Ruwedel (b. 1954) lives and works in California. He has exhibited and published internationally for over thirty years, and his work is represented in museums throughout the world: Tate Modern; the J. Paul Getty Museum; LACMA; The Met, New York; National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Canada; SF MoMA; and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, amongst others. Previous works include Westward the Course of Empire (Yale University Art Gallery, 2008); 1212 Palms (Yale University Art Gallery, 2010) and Pictures of Hell (RAM Pubs, Los Angeles, 2014). In 2014 he was the recipient of both a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Scotiabank Photography Award.
