    Cross-Examinations, Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei

    €20.00

    Cross-Examinations is an exercise in writing, erasing, and rewriting. Its four, increasingly layered iterations interrogate issues pertaining to torture, pain, and being. They engage a series of texts and works, such as an exchange between Heidegger and Jünger, poetry by John Donne and Jean Daive, a novel by Nachoem Wijnberg, Cranach’s The Martyrdom of Saint Catherine, Broodthaers’ Fémur d’homme belge and Fémur de la femme française. A constant attempt to reassess its own claims, Cross-Examinations is a palimpsest, printed and reprinted until the ink becomes page.

    Libretto, Daniel Buren: a fresco

    €30.00

    French artist Daniel Buren (°1938) is best known for his fixed pattern of white and colored vertical stripes, which are inspired by the screens that shade Parisian bistro terraces. Because of the temporary nature of Buren's work, it seems impossible to initiate a classical retrospective. Buren nevertheless accepted the offer that BOZAR, Brussels Palais des Beaux-Arts, offered him to curate the exhibition A Fresco. This show's intention is twofold. On the one hand the artist created a film especially for the exhibition which recalls his lost interventions as much as possible. On the other hand, Buren has connected his trademark stripes to existing work by over 100 renown artists from the 20th and 21st centuries, such as Paul Cézanne, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Sol LeWitt, Pierre Huyghe and many more. Both these set ups as well as BUren's new interventions in the BOZAR are what A Fresco is all about: a unique show running from February 19th till May 22nd. 

    The accompanying publication is conceived as a newspaper, by analogy with The Buren Times, which Daniel Buren made especially for the 2005 exhibition devoted to his art in 2005 at the Guggenheim in New York. Libretto comprises several headers such as the exhibition itself, a review of past interventions by the artist in Belgium and beyond. Featuring texts by amongst others Daniel Buren, Joël Benzakin, Bernard Blistène, Rudi Fuchs, Luk Lambrecht, Frederik Leen and Paul Dujardin.

    Libretto, Daniel Buren: une fresque

    €30.00

    On reconnaît l’œuvre de l'artiste français Daniel Buren (°1938) surtout par ses fameuses interventions de bandes verticales blanches et colorées, qui sont inspirées par les stores de magasins et bistrots parisiens. Due au caractère temporel de ses œuvres in situ, une rétrospective classique semble impossible. Pourtant Buren n'a pas hésité d'accepter le défi proposé par BOZAR, Le Palais des Beaux-Arts à Bruxelles. C'est là que l'exposition Une Fresque est née. L'exposition est pensée en deux parties intégrées: tout d'abord un film que Buren a composé et qui évoque toutes ses interventions désormais disparues. La deuxième partie comprend une grande installation qui connecte ses célèbres bandes à de nombreux artistes (en total plus de cent) du vingtième et vingt-et-unième siècle qui ont, de près ou de loin, influencés et inspirés l'artiste. Sont entres autres inclus dans l'exposition pensée par Buren: Paul Cézanne, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Sol LeWitt, Pierre Huyghe, Pascal Marthine Tayou, … et Daniel Buren. Avec l'exposition Une Fresque, l'artiste a créé une intervention unique et nouvelle qui est en interaction constante avec l'architecture du Palais des Beaux-Arts. Ce sont tous ces éléments qui sont au cœur de cette exposition insolite à visiter du 19 février jusqu'à 22 mai 2016. La publication associée est pensée et conçue comme un journal conforme Le Buren Times, un journal créé par Buren consacré à son exposition dans le Musée Guggenheim à New York en 2005. Une Fresque contient des contributions d'entre autres Daniel Buren, Joël Benzakin, Bernard Blistène, Rudi Fuchs, Luk Lambrecht, Frederik Leen et Paul Dujardin.

    Libretto, Daniel Buren: een fresco

    €30.00

    De Franse kunstenaar Daniel Buren (°1938) ken je van zijn vast patroon van witte en gekleurde verticale strepen geïnspireerd op luifels van Parijse bistro’s. Door het tijdelijke karakter van Burens werk is een klassieke retrospectieve onmogelijk. Met de tentoonstelling Een Fresco gaat hij de uitdaging voluit aan. Voor het eerst in zijn carrière maakt Buren een film die zoveel mogelijk van zijn verdwenen interventies oproept. In de tentoonstellingszalen van het Brusselse BOZAR, waar van 19 februari tot en met 22 mei een grote overzichtstentoonstelling loopt, verbindt hij zijn strepen met het werk van meer dan 100 kunstenaars. Deze zijn stuk voor stuk grote vertegenwoordigers uit de 20ste en 21ste eeuw, zoals Paul Cézanne, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Sol LeWitt, Pierre Huyghe en vele anderen. Ook buiten het tentoonstellingscircuit belooft Buren de dialoog aan te gaan met de architectuur van het Paleis voor Schone Kunsten. De bijhorende publicatie is opgevat als een krant, naar analogie met The Buren Times uit 2005, gemaakt voor Burens tentoonstelling in het Guggenheim in New York. Libretto bevat diverse rubrieken waaronder de tentoonstelling, maar ook een overzicht van interventies die Daniel Buren in het verleden in België en daarbuiten heeft gemaakt. Met bijdragen van Daniel Buren, Joel Benzakin, Bernard Blistène, Rudi Fuchs, Luk Lambrecht, Frederik Leen en Paul Dujardin.

    AB.ad., Jean-Marie Bytebier

    €39.00

    Jean-Marie Bytebier (°1963) is a Belgian artist, whose work references several 20th-century painting traditions in which the unfinished and the notion of absence play prominent parts. With his paintings Bytebier creates an intriguing world of often undetermined landscapes; a foliage of silent and blurry spaces devoid of human beings but in which the cultural remnants of humanity subtly seep through. Three decades of artistic practice are now gathered in a publication from which any textual explanation is banned. The result is an artist’s book that puts the visual world of Bytebier through new sequences to the fore, thus triggering new meanings that alter the art book, from a canonical catalogue to a new work of art.

    GROUND (Book + DVD)

    €27.50

    DVD: GROUND, Recorded at Studio Loos, The Hague, July 2014 (11:59)

    Co-production with iii
    Distributed by N.E.W.S.
    Release Date: February 12, 2016
    Limited edition of 300 copies
    Design by Jeroen Wille & Ruud Ruttens

    In the audio-visual performance ‘Ground’ by Dewi de Vree and Jeroen Uyttendaele the acoustic is rendered tactile. Fascinated by ways of rematerialising an increasingly dematerialised and idealised world, their work can be seen as an attempt to approach electronic music in a more intuitive, engaging manner. Using graphite, a material that conducts electricity and is used in everyday variable resistors, they compose drawings that figure as the interface that controls the volume, pitch and amplitude of the piece. As the lines drawn stretch, intersect or encounter foreign conductive elements – such as the hand – the sound is either modulated or becomes warped. The result is a performance that blends senses together or juxtaposes them, as it creates tension between the unpredictable, aleatoric qualities of the graphite and the order of lines that the performers impose upon it, which form the rudimentary ‘score’ of the piece. This book presents a collection of 51 of these graphite drawings and is accompanied by a video recording of ‘Ground’ performed live by the artists at Studio Loos in The Hague.

    La Chose, Même, Julião Sarmento

    €29.00

    The publication La Chose, Même is a tribute to the first Julião Sarmento (°1948) panorama held at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Paris, curated by Ami Barak. Julião Sarmento is one of the most notable members and instigators of a wave of Portuguese artists emerg-
    ing in the wake of the democratic regime in Portugal. Because of his assertive participation in post-war artistic reflections and because of the certainty and consistency of his discourse, Sarmento’s work was rapidly appreciated by the interna- tional art scene; resulting in group and solo shows and representations in major galleries throughout the world. La Chose, Même is a generous collection of Sarmento’s photographs, drawings, sculptures, videos and performances, presented with insightful essays by Ami Barak and Mara Ambrožic.

    Jazzz, Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven

    €29.50

    Jazzz brengt negen literaire topteksten bij het werk van Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven. De tien auteurs die meewerkten aan het boek, schreven hun teksten onder meer op basis van 24 'heilige' boeken die Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven inspireren bij het maken van haar beelden en installaties. Zelf sloot AMVK haar beelden af met een trialoog, bestaande uit de collage en montage van drie auteurs van de 24: de mystica Marguerite Porete, de hermeticus Giordano Bruno en de filosoof Herbert Marcuse. De beelden voor dit samenspel verwijzen naar softporno, mystiek, underground strips, cartoons, kosmologie, fotografie, exacte wetenschappen en computeranimatie. Er ontstaat een woekering van modellen, waarin Van Kerckhoven met haar vrouwelijke blik, intuïtie, drift, agressie, ritme, klank en gebaar de aannames van onze rationele, gemediatiseerde cultuur met kritische vragen bestookt. Om ruimte te geven aan het sublieme, het mysterie, de grenservaring, de herinnering aan het oneindige, de extase.
