    Maekawa II

    €45.00

    Maekawa II presents the work of Japanese artist Tsuyoshi Maekawa (° 1936) during the 1970s. In contrast to Maekawa I, which highlights his art of the previous decade made within the directives of the Gutai Art Association, Maekawa II sheds light on the artist’s unremitting efforts to overcome the sudden death of Gutai’s leader Jiro Yoshihara in 1972. In this volume, the ceaseless innovations and impulses Maekawa instigated in his post-Gutai practice are brought to the fore. They show the profound exercises and manipulations of sewed and dyed burlap that he shaped into oftentimes highly tactile squares, lines, triangles, and a multitude of colourful yet sober wavy patterns; at times stretched over boxes or loosely draped over walls. The result is a singular exploration of fabric, texture, colour and the possibilities of the canvas at its roughest core.

    DW B 161 / 5 / 8x F.B.-D.B.-16, Dirk Braeckman

    €39.00

    In het oeuvre van Dirk Braeckman (1958, Eeklo) staat het experiment centraal, enerzijds in de registratie en anderzijds, des te meer, in de bewerking. De beelden die Braeckman capteert kennen vaak een anonieme oorsprong. Of het nu gaat om eigen opnames, found footage of een combinatie hiervan - de kunstenaar ontdoet de beelden radicaal en steevast van hun temporele en ruimtelijke context. Braeckman capteert verlaten transitzones zoals gangen, hallen en hotelkamers; plekken waar het private en het publieke elkaar overlappen. Hij is doorgaans in zijn onmiddellijke omgeving aan het werk, wat zijn foto’s een zeker autobiografisch karakter geven. De kunstenaar verkent de grenzen van zijn medium en daagt de fotografische conventies uit. De flits van de camera kaatst af op de textuur van de muren, gordijnen, tapijten en lakens. Een volledig verstilling ontstaat door de zuivere kracht van de beelden.

    Alchimia Nova, AnneMarie Maes

    €25.00

    Maes is a multi-media artist who has been studying the tight interactions and co-evolutions within urban ecosystems. In the open-air lab on the rooftop of her studio, she created an experimental garden and has been keeping bees in self-designed beehives, equipped to bring out hidden structures in the life of the colony. Her “field notes” provide an on-going source of inspiration for her artworks. The Bee Laboratory, as well as her late experiments with “living” textiles, open a framework that has been initiating a wide range of installations, photography works, sculptures, workshops and books. It is a long-term project on the edge of art, science and technology.

    Crossing The Circle, Philippe Vandenberg

    €39.00

    Philippe Vandenberg: Crossing The Circle comes out on the occasion of the first exhibition in the UK of the drawings of Vandenberg (1952 – 2009), who is considered one of the foremost painters in Belgium. Vandenberg’s extraordinary drawings, distinguished by fluid draughtsmanship in pencil, ink, sometimes blood and richly colored watercolor, possess an urgency and economy alongside a playful sensibility. His drawings have rarely been shown. Vandenberg was an accomplished and prolific draughtsman, filling hundreds of sketchbooks with drawings and watercolors. For the first time, the publication Crossing The Circle shows a selection of drawings spanning the years 1990 to the year of his death in 2009. The works selected display radical stylistic and thematic shifts, that combine highly personal images about life, sex, death, good, evil, as well as powerful responses to the political and social upheavals which the artist perceived around him. They explore difficult confrontational subjects of personal suffering and brutal depictions of human cruelty that express an existential disgust and despair with the world but equally can contain humor.

    Siebzehn, Michael Seidner

    €29.00

    German artist Michael Seidner (° 1985) makes small-scale, abstract and often fiercely colorful paintings, which can range from very bright and shiny, to extremely sober, dark and referencing inwardness. Simultaneously the impact his paintings therefore can have, shift from a soothing, melancholy feel to a more acute, even aggressive awareness. In the work of Seidner, a substantial amount of effort seems to center around his motivations with respect to colors, texture and gesture, turning every painting into previously unknown territory, ready for the viewer to discover. This publication comes out on the occasion of Seidner’s show Siebzehn from November 25, 2016 until April 2, 2017 at the Neues Museum, State Museum for Art and Design Nuremberg, Germany.

    The World of a/the Monkey, Pol Dehert

    €29.00

    The World of a/the Monkey is the written result of years of fascination by theater director Pol Dehert for the life and works of the 17th-century poet and libertine John Wilmot, alias "the monkey" and duke of Rochester. In this essay, devised as a play in several acts, Dehert sketches the signs of early modern visual culture, the prevalent theoretical morals of libertinism, and the theatrical baroque body. These findings coincide with the author's other fascination for everything popular: from burlesque theater over freak shows, variety and revue, to music hall, grand guignol and striptease. The premise for this publication was the author's eponym doctoral dissertation on Exhibiting Baroque Bodies, which was defended in 2015 at the Brussels' RITCS, Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema and Sound.
