    Inland Voyages in An Inland Voyage, Mira Sanders

    Under the generic title of Journal of a user of space, Mira Sanders (°1973, Brussels) develops a manifold oeuvre on mapping and territory as well as architecture and social space. The network of lines as well as the physical and temporal trajectories of her wanderings, constitutes through her drawings, videos and installations, a work of fiction inspired by the everyday and the trivial. As an invitation to multiple travels, Inland Voyages in An Inland Voyage was presented during two exhibitions, at Argos – Center for Art and Media in Brussels in 2016 and at the Musée d’art contemporain de la ­Haute-Vienne, Château de Rochechouart in 2018.

    Other Things Visible, Michel Mazzoni

    Situated as it is at the very turn of the century, and questioning from the outset the inflation and desubstantialisation involved in the hegemony of images, Michel Mazzoni’s photographic practice is an image factory or rather an image-thinking factory. An image which outflanks it and decompartmentalises it in multifarious ways, from its installation in situ to its editorial deployment. An image qua cultural artefact in its capacity to link us to the world in a shared sense of perpetual present and of circular time. An image qua material reality pushed to the limits, based on the phenomenology of its perception, hence on its intrinsic quality of enigma. 



    This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Other Things Visible' by Michel Mazzoni at Botanique, Brussels in the spring of 2019.

    Un nouveau musée, Simon Boudvin

    French artist Simon Boudvin (°1979) brought a narrative but also political depth to the architectural project of building the new museum of folklore in Mouscon. His work consisted in inserting bricks that were recovered from the demolition sites of several small heritages in Mouscron. The bricks inserted in the facade contribute to the story of the preservation of tradition and minor architecture under threat. As part of the work, the book 'Un Nouveau Musée' consists of a text by the artist, in which he extensively descibes the museum, without showing it.

    René Heyvaert

    After briefly working as an architect, René Heyvaert (1929–1984) decided to pursue a career as an artist. He saw art as essential to his life; a way of dealing with the world. Heyvaert’s artistic practice is very versatile; he has created drawings, photos, mail art and sculptures in the most diverse of materials, and has also published and took part in performances. But he is best known for his work with found objects that he reinterprets through minimal interpositions. By carrying out small, poetic interventions, Heyvaert took everyday objects out of their context and stripped them of their original function. This catalogue is published on the occasion of the exhibition of the oeuvre of René Heyvaert at Museum M Leuven in the winter of 2018 and exposes on his artistic as well as architectural practice, with interviews, essays and personal reflections.

    MUSEUM III. 2.3, Anetta Mona Chişa & Lucia Tkáčová



     Deze publicatie documenteert de tentoonstelling van de Roemeense Anetta Mina Chişa (°1975) & Slowaakse Lucia Tkáčová (°1977) in het Cultuurcentrum Strombeek in het voorjaar van 2018. De kunstenaars studeerden samen af aan de Academie voor Schone Kunsten en Design in van Bratislava en werken samen sinds 2000. Echt in de kijker liepen ze met hun bijdrage voor het Roemeense Paviljoen op de Biënnale van Venetië in 2011 waar ze tal van vanzelfsprekendheden als heilige huisjes aankaartten van en in de benepen en op status en luxe beluste kunstwereld (én markt). Ze namen in dat officiële paviljoen ook de autoritaire rol van de curator op de korrel die zich haast als een kunstenaar de kunst toe-eigent bij het opzetten van een coherent curateel verhaal. Zij werken met alle media, van porselein via video tot performances, over postcommunistische thema's en tussenin de hoop die er heerste na de val van de Muur van Berlijn (1989) en de (nog) na smeulende ontgoocheling en verbittering. Op een handige manier ontluisteren en demythologiseren Anetta & Lucia het valse laagje ideologie dat zich nestelt tussen bijvoorbeeld lage en hoge cultuur. Rollenpatronen tot zelfs tips voor wanhopige Oost-Europese vrouwen passeerden de revue. Anetta & Lucia maken een nieuw voorstel waarin, vanuit een oprecht dealen met de rechten van de mens en (specifiek) de plaats van vrouwen, thema’s aan bod komen zoals de onzichtbare krachten en machten die ons leven op een onzichtbare wijze leiden en begeleiden.

    Thomas Frontini

    Thomas Frontini (°Kingston, 1967) lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio. With a love of art history and background in paper conservation, the history of painting visibly weighs on his decision of palette and technique. His works show the strong influence of Italian Renaissance artists, combined with Surrealist tendencies, and a touch of irony. Thomas Frontini’s work is based on the premise that fantasy and reality are always clashing in one’s consciousness, particularly in dreams. Typically, Frontini uses strong foreground imagery, set against a background of intangible landscapes and tableaux of fluid colours. The depicted scenes seem to suggest a certain narrative; as if an attempt is made to recollect a vague memory, of which some bits have remained crystal clear and some bits have disappeared into oblivion. Frontini captures the viewer's gaze in strong images that are full of symbolism, references, and humor. Simultaneously apocalyptic and elegantly hopeful.

    Sculptures & Drawings, Herma De Wit

    Herma de Wit lives and works in Amsterdam. After studying at the Rietveld Academy and following a career in fashion de Wit shifted her interest to visual arts. Since 1999 she has been creating art pieces going from fragile sketches of flowers to robust bronze or wooden sculptures. A guiding principle in her practice is her fascination for natural cycles, which gives rise to reflections about emotion and processes of life and ephemerality. Distinctive in her work is her flawless sense of detail and technique, her balanced sensitivity and powerfull femininity.



    In the course of time, de Wit’s work has become more monumental; by incorporating steel and robust materials and enlarging the scale she triggers a tension between the vulnerability and strength of nature.

    Things & Air, Rein Dufait

    For Rein Dufait, the definition of sculpture is the adding or subtracting of material. His rigorous approach to his chosen medium has led him to develop a singular — perhaps also solitary — practice that is nourished by an insistent curiosity about material (whether natural or manmade) and a fascination with form (whether organic or artistic). In his work, Dufait confronts the fundamental questions of sculpture: how to divide space; how to combine textures; how to create volume and height. His sculptures are never narrative, seldom figurative, but often refer to organic structures. Always human in scale, they reveal an efficiency in construction that is fundamental to their meaning.
