    The House of Our Fathers, Dirk Braeckman & Jan Lauwers

    This outstanding volume is the trace of an immersion by Dirk Braeckman in the performance The House of Our Fathers by Jan Lauwers & Needcompany at the Kunstfestspiele Herrenhausen, Hannover, 2013.

    The photographs having passed Braeckman's dark room, the images, often starting from the same negative, start to compose a universe beyond the event's registration.

    With the boldness of a painter sketching, Dirk Braeckman has set up a series of which this volume can be considered the opening dance.

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

    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. 



    De best vormgegeven boeken 2018, eervolle vermelding.

    Dirk Vander Eecken

    At a first viewing of Dirk Vander Eecken's recent work, I was peripherally reminded of the edition "Erster Blick" (2000) of the German artist Gerhard Richter. This simple appropriation of a page from the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung shows a photo with a text fragment of the first image of the inside of an atom, made by scientists at the University of Augsburg. It is an edition in which Gerhard Richter expresses his fascination for what underlies the material world, or what it is made up of. Concrete reality is tipped over through a microscopic examination that creates a mysterious image which evades all human control. Gerhard Richter also painted, after an illness, snow landscapes that conjure up a similar fascination with a landscape that exists but is temporarily covered with a layer of white snow. In a similar way, the oeuvre of Dirk Vander Eecken is an attempt at creating a continuum, an attempted contemplation of "realities" that directly opposes the routinous perception of the overpressurised rustling reality that surrounds us.
