    List, Stefaan Dheedene

    This first monograph on conceptual artist Stefaan Dheedene (°1975, Belgium) brings an overview of 20 years of artistic practice. The book can be considered as an instrument or handbook, that was created in order to conceive a mental and fysical space in which the oeuvre can be compressed and interrelationships can be exposed. This monograph was structured by Dheedene himself, by the use of eight named lists. This principle makes the underlying artistic research visible and creates the possibility of a multiple approach, without falling into corrections and forced interpretations and contextualization.

    Chantier Construction Site, AgwA

    AgwA shows work in progress: execution as a verb. A collection of collected images. Without a necessary order or sequence. Enlarged and then zoomed in again. But moments that had to be visualised at that time. Perhaps merely to serve as witness. Perhaps ultimately as an unencumbered catalogue of which only this or that will really be understood later on. Or will even be used. AgwA makes work of work in progress: exe¬cution as a context. That all of those images are collected is not odd. Not odd in and of itself. As situated: the importance of the building site. But also not strange for AgwA itself. The work itself of AgwA. Increasingly the work situates the idea of what a building truly is. How it is made. Or rather, how it is actually made. — Jan De Vylder 



    AgwA is a Brussels based architecture office. The projects of AgwA architects focus mainly on public infrastructures and buildings for collectivities in Belgium. Amongst these, reconversion projects in complex urban contexts are predominant. In these loaded surroundings, AgwA aims at clear spatial cuts which can be built in a very straightforward way. To achieve this, the internal resources of architecture are fundamental. Structures, construction materials, ample spatial systems and a precise contextual positioning are at the heart of their design strategies. Their architecture is simultaneously ordinary and exceptional.



    Photographs by AgwA, Filip Dujardin, Antoine Espinasseau, Delphine Mathy and Sévérin Malaud. Texts by Jan De Vylder (architects de vylder vinck taillieu, Ghent) and Tom Emerson (6a architects, London). AgwA partners : Benoît Burquel, Harold Fallon, Benoît Vandenbulcke

    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. 2.2 , Narcisse Tordoir & Fendry Ekel

    In het voorjaar van 2018 presenteerde Cc Strombeek een greep uit het oeuvre van Narcisse Tordoir (°1954) van 1975 tot 2017 in dialoog met de Indonesische kunstenaar Fendry Ekel (°1971). Narcisse Tordoir (1954) is een vaste en eigenzinnig gebleven artistieke waarde in ons land. Verontwaardiging en een groot, impliciet wereldengagement maakt zich meester over zijn gehele werk. In Strombeek presenteert Tordoir een enorme, diagonaal in de zaal gebouwde muur met een puntgave selectie uit zijn brede oeuvre waaruit “engagement” spreekt. Narcisse werkt een project uit met de Indonesische kunstenaar Fendry Ekel (1971) die momenteel leeft tussen Jakarta en Berlijn. Hij maakt technisch verbluffende schilderkunst: figuratieve montages waarin hij zijn politiek beladen thema's als het ware op een schaakspel aanbiedt aan de toeschouwer. Het schaakspel als een metafoor voor het verschuiven van betekenissen tussen zien en het an sich particulier interpreteren. In Cc Strombeek zal Fendry Ekel nieuw werk presenteren in een sterke en intense dialoog met Narcisse Tordoir.

    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.

    Zarba Lonsa, _0_0__0, Mesonya/, Katinka Bock

    This publication forms the catalogue of three solo-exhibitions of artist Katinka Bock in Paris, London and Toronto that were linked to the work ‘Zarba Lonsa’ which she created during her residency at Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers in Paris in 2016.



    Particularly interested by the atmosphere of the Quatre-Chemins district where Les Laboratories is located, the artist went to meet merchants to initiate a relationship with them based on the exchange of one of her works for an object of their shop.

    This gesture was the starting point of a creative process that has unfolded in several forms – sculptures, installation, films and photos. Renewing the process of this exchange-based relationship in a specific urban context for a new production of works and photographs, a second edition of the project took shape under the title _0_0__0 in June 2017 at Mercer Union in Toronto. To complete the series, a last edition took place at the Siobhan Davies Dance in London under the title Mesonya/ in Fall 2017.
