    Spectres, Sven Augustijnen



    If the 'communist infiltration of Africa' was a spectre often used tojustify the elimination of Patrice Lumumba, The assasination of the Congo's—indeed, Africa's—first democratically elected Prime Minister on 17 January 1961 created a spectre of it's own. Sir Jaques Brassinne de La Buissière, then a young Belgian functionary, was in Elisabethville on that fateful day. He has written several books on the subject, and spent more than thirty years trying to bring to light 'what really happened'. This supplement to Sven Augustijnen's film Spectres offers another look at the film's main character, who is at once guide, narrator, and symbol of a past that continues to cast its shadow on the present.

    ‘Spectres’ was shown at Sven Augustijnen's solo exhibition at Wiels in Brussels, from May 8 to July 31, 2011.

    Two bilingual editions: English/French and Dutch/French.

    About Flowers & Taxis, Werner Mannaers






    Published on the occasion of Werner Mannaers' exposition 'About Flowers & Taxis' at De Garage-Cultuurcentrum Mechelen (16.01.–14.03.2010).



    Active for some thirty years as a painter, Mannaers is a typical example of the artist whose life and being are felt in every fibre of the canvas or paper. As in a diary he digest the emotions of the day in his drawings. Deepened and purified they find a way into his paintings. Erudite and permeated by a great art historical understanding he brings different aspects, trends and influences from art, literature and philosophy together. Sometimes harmonious and serious, sometimes as an ironic clash of images, but often without any distinction between high and low culture.

    La robe des choses, Jürgen Partenheimer

    For the the exhibition in the S.M.A.K., Partenheimer's conceptual point of departure has been La Robe des Choses, a text from A la Rêveuse Matière by the French author Francis Ponge. Reality is veiled, elusive. There is only one-way to fathom its depths: through thinking. Reflection results in concepts that enable us to penetrate and reconstruct reality. On the other hand, there will always remain elements from reality that elude pure reason and that can only be made visible by art. Partenheimer's work must consequently be interpreted as resulting from a coherent stream of thoughts, with which the artist does not so much want to reveal or evoke a certain reality, as to show us and discuss the reflections that accompany our 'being in this reality'. Quite often dogmas are undermined by new dogmas. That, precisely, is what Partenheimer seeks to avoid. An image, in Partenheimer's view, is only interesting if it can constantly bring about new streams of ideas. The public is thus invited to create the image himself or herself according the artist's theory: 'All sculpture is essentially conceptual. It does not have a final, definite form or a fixed, spatial dimension. As a model, as a monument of the imagination, a sculpture assumes those dimensions, which it needs for the respective environment in which it is shown. Any work may be altered and its dimensions deliberately adapted to the place chosen for its showing, be it a geometrically architectural room or an open, natural space'.

    17 and in AUC – The transcriptions, Hassan Khan

    For 14 nights, 7th 20th of April 2003, the artist sat in a soundproofed one-way mirrored glass room from 7 to 11 pm drinking beer, smoking cigarettes and speaking. His main focus were his undergraduate years (between 1990 and 1995) at the American University in Cairo (AUC), which he entered when he was 15 and graduated from when he was 20. All 56 hours of this performative action were documented on a digital video camera. The book holds a transcription of every legible word uttered during these hours.
