    Trying, Emilio López-Menchero

    €45.00

    This book serves as a printed memory of the oeuvre of the artist Emilio López-Menchero (°1960, Mol). It documents and illustrates a selection of exhibitions, artistic projects and public performances created in the past 25 years.

    Conceptually, the book is based on a statement by which López considers each of his actions a test against reality, an ‘attempt’. Within this context, the title of each project is consequently preceded by the prefix ‘Trying to -’; ‘Trying to situate’, ‘Trying to light up’, ‘Trying to question’,... By trying to infiltrate daily context, López-Menchero aims to generate new situations, confront with reality and contemplate on the meaning of art. Included in the book are essays and texts by Luk Lambrecht, Hans Theys and Koen Synghel.

    Da.ta (Transpositions)

    €39.00

    This book forms a catalogue of the research project 'Transpositions', instigated by Austrian artists Michael Schwab, Gerhard Eckel and David Pirrò. The project investigates the possibility of generating new auditory and visual forms based on the analysis and mathematical transformation of scientific data. In addition, the project studies whether and how these new forms are of scientific significance by asking the collaborating researchers to scientifically analyse the artistic outputs. By combining scientific and artistic values, the project contributes to the conceptual development of a space for research that is shared between art and science.

    The 'artistic data explorations' that emerged from the research project were presented and discussed within the context of the exhibition and symposium in May 2016 'DATA Rush'.

    Archivist: An Introduction to The Work of Tim Volckaert, Tim Volckaert

    €45.00

    Re-itinerating the artist's projects from his early beginnings till today, this volume offers an exhaustive overview of 'the work of Tim Volckaert'. A hybrid between canonical cataloguing and artist-driven exhibiting.

    The work of Tim Volckaert translates a world vision where duality – which characterises and dominates the history of Western thought – is central. In his drawings, sculptures and actions the image of ‘the landscape’ is often the starting point. The landscape in the qualification of ‘world space’ that serves as a backdrop to comment on the struggle of man with his environment.

    Fight, Fore, Free, To, One., Delphine Deguislage

    €35.00

    Delphine Deguislage is staging sculpted limbs from a female body, which is both almighty and fragmented, together with reinterpreted household objects and tools, as well as distorted architectural fragments. Often chosen for their function and/or their symbolic significance, they concentrate forms of intensities. Posed and exposed, they seem to be reclaiming both a physical and mental realm.

    Woestijngetijden, Carla Swerts

    €25.00

    Deze publicatie vormt de neerslag van het doctoraatsonderzoek van Carla Swerts (°1992) waarin zij poogt het westerse beeld van het Midden-Oosten – de Oriënt – te nuanceren door een alternatieve verbeelding van het gebied aan te reiken. Swerts neemt hierbij stelling in t.o.v. de positie van de kunstenaar, die binnen deze context vraagt om een actief engagement met het gebied, geworteld in de ervaring zelf.

    SOP, Ann Huybens

    €19.00

    De hersentumor en de epilepsieaanvallen enerzijds en de cocktail van medicatie en routine anderzijds. Daartussen de wereld die langs haar 'kijkkamer' passeert. De herinneringen. De stad. De straat, het verzet, mensen. Haar moeder, haar zuster, haar dochter. Haar broer. haar kat. De tijd, het lijf, de kleine triomfen. Zoals het is. Als een archivaris houdt Ann Huybens de dagen bij.

    CRUX, Koenraad Tinel

    €35.00

    Koenraad Tinel (°1934, Gent) is beeldhouwer en tekenaar. Al heel vroeg begon hij te tekenen en piano te spelen. In 1944 vluchtten zijn ouders met hem en zijn zus naar Duitsland, een odyssee door de puinhopen van Europa die onuitwisbaar in zijn geheugen staat gegrift. Zijn sculpturen, veelal uit metaal en mixed media, vallen op door hun directe zeggingskracht en grote emotionele intensiteit. Doorheen de jaren illustreerde Tinel eveneens tientallen mythen, sproken, oerverhalen van de mensheid en gedichten en verscheen hij meermaals als performer en tekenaar op het podium in projecten van bevriende muzikanten en theatermakers.

    Deze particuliere visuele lezing van zijn oeuvre, gecombineerd met een tekst van Stefan Hertmans, brengt een nieuwe kijk op het werk van Koenraad Tinel.

    From Scene to Scene, Angel Vergara

    €35.00

    The work of Brussels-based artist Angel Vergara (°1958, Spain) is a continued research into the aesthetical and ethical power of the image. Through mediation and transformation of existing images by means of performance, video, installation and painting, Vergara questions the way images shape our reality.

    In his recent painted films, Angel Vergara links audiovisual to painting, putting the act of painting at the heart of his own pictorial production. The exhibition From Scene to Scene in the summer of 2017 at Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels presented five large-format “painted films”, echoing five lectures of poet and art critic Charles Baudelaire in which he defended his views on modernity.
