    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.

    Animated Life / Otaku Futurism, Didier Volckaert

    Didier Volckaert, aka Ikari 'Ellis' Katsumi, has compiled an impressive collection of images and authored a fascinating travelogue guiding us through the world of Otaku culture.

    Animated Life / Otaku Futurism puts us at the threshold of Anime as life itself, the complex and refined form of reality lived by Otaku.

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

    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.

    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.

    Maekawa II

    Maekawa II presents the work of Japanese artist Tsuyoshi Maekawa (° 1936) during the 1970s. In contrast to Maekawa I, which highlights his art of the previous decade made within the directives of the Gutai Art Association, Maekawa II sheds light on the artist’s unremitting efforts to overcome the sudden death of Gutai’s leader Jiro Yoshihara in 1972. In this volume, the ceaseless innovations and impulses Maekawa instigated in his post-Gutai practice are brought to the fore. They show the profound exercises and manipulations of sewed and dyed burlap that he shaped into oftentimes highly tactile squares, lines, triangles, and a multitude of colourful yet sober wavy patterns; at times stretched over boxes or loosely draped over walls. The result is a singular exploration of fabric, texture, colour and the possibilities of the canvas at its roughest core.

    Ground, Jeroen Uyttendaele & Dewi de Vree

    In the audio-visual performance ‘Ground’ by Dewi de Vree and Jeroen Uyttendaele the acoustic is rendered tactile. Fascinated by ways of rematerialising an increasingly dematerialised and idealised world, their work can be seen as an attempt to approach electronic music in a more intuitive, engaging manner. Using graphite, a material that conducts electricity and is used in everyday variable resistors, they compose drawings that figure as the interface that controls the volume, pitch and amplitude of the piece. As the lines drawn stretch, intersect or encounter foreign conductive elements – such as the hand – the sound is either modulated or becomes warped. The result is a performance that blends senses together or juxtaposes them, as it creates tension between the unpredictable, aleatoric qualities of the graphite and the order of lines that the performers impose upon it, which form the rudimentary ‘score’ of the piece. This book presents a collection of 51 of these graphite drawings and is accompanied by a video recording of ‘Ground’ performed live by the artists at Studio Loos in The Hague.
