    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.

    Playground '16 - '07

    What is the importance of the medium performance today? Which challenges are occurring? And which role has Playground in this context? This set of questions was presented at a selection of artists and curators who visited the festival. Their reflections on ten years Playground led to a new publication, in which curators Steven Vandervelden (STUK) and Eva Wittocx (M-Museum Leuven) also share their vision. As a result the book presents a unique retrospective on the nation-al and international importance of the festival.

    3 boek 7 8 9 (box set), Architecten De Vylder Vinck Taillieu

    Open now for pre-order. Shipments will start January 11, 2018.



    First 53: €297

    Next 31: €353

    Last 29: €451



    3 boek 7 8 9 is a publication by architecten de vylder vinck taillieu in collaboration with MER. Paper Kunsthalle. The box set of three books gives an extended overview of both built and unbuilt work by the office, realised over the past decade.



    As a box set, 3 boek 7 8 9 follows the already published 1 boek 1 2 3 and the not yet published 2 boek 4 5 6. In contrast to the first set of books – fully edited by the office itself and conceived as a continuous, associative, cross-referencing text – this third set takes an opposite approach. The box compiles three existing monographs – a re-enactment of the out-of-print 2G N. 66, the 13th catalogue from the series De aedibus international and the recently published a+u 561 17:06 – and brings these ‘as-found objects’ together as one narrative.



    The editorial strategy employed in connecting the three separate monographs is an extension of the office’s overall attitude towards architecture, as demonstrated in their work. Using the formal interventions of copying and cutting, the monographs – each with their own household identity – are appropriated and related to each other. As such, the box set not only presents an overview of projects, it embodies these projects in the texture of the publication itself.



    3 boek 7 8 9 is available in a limited edition of 113 handnumbered issues and is accompanied by a short essay on architects’ books by Moritz Küng.
