This lavishly illustrated catalogue gives an overview of all artworks from the show and an interpretative text of S.M.A.K. director Philippe Van Cauteren.

    In de eerste uren Zomer, Inge Braeckman

    In haar jongste dichtbundel In de eerste uren Zomer neemt Inge Braeckman het delicate maar belangrijke evenwicht tussen natuur en cultuur, poëzie en muziek, taal en zang als uitgangspunt. Aan de hand van vier delen die fungeren als vier bewegingen van het muzikaal-poëtische principe, structureert ze de bundel op een intuïtief-rationele manier waarbij ze telkens weer elke voor de hand liggende of voorspelbare systematiek ontkracht. Op die manier ontstaat er een ingenieus spel met de gulheid en onverwachtsheid van taal. Haar beeldspraak laveert tussen het tastbare en onaantastbare De realiteit wordt omhelsd in eigenzinnige metaforiek. Details zijn essentieel.

    The Role of the Story Teller, Richard Tuttle

    "Color is not easy to translate into words. Perhaps color actively resists language or plausible de nition? And vice versa: words can change color. I got this idea from thinking about how color and sound are similar. We can use the same words for both: depth, tone, brightness, etc... ere sound is not ordered in nature, we order it and make music. Color must be the same."



    Richard Tuttle reflects on color during his stay in Ostend in 2017, where his solo exhibition Light And Color was on view at Mu.Zee. It was here that he set out the initial framework for what became The Role Of The Story Teller, a book that invites us to his world of color.



    The book consists of five sections, depicting and illustrating two of his marvellous artist books—Not the Point (2009) and You never see the same color twice (2017)—while connecting them with three exhibitions from 2017, namely his solo-presentation at de Hallen (Haarlem, NL), Books, Multiples, Prints, Writings and New Projects at Galerie Christian Lethert (Cologne,

    DE) and Light and Color at Mu.Zee (Ostend, BE).



    With his documented writings, images of artworks and selections of text, Tuttle departs from concrete notions of color, instead proposing a boundless vision of “real” color. Tuttle’s themes and provocative questions bring together seemingly disparate episodes, providing new ways to consider and experience our own relationship to color.

  • De Handdoek, Honoré δ'O

    De Handdoek, Honoré δ'O

    Nu beschikbaar als pre-order aan de intekenprijs van €15.



    De Gentse installatie- en videokunstenaar Honoré δ’O laat zich inspireren door de handdoek op één van de buitenluiken van het 15de-eeuwse Lam Gods van de gebroeders Van Eyck. In het detail van de handdoek (en het water) schuilen de thema’s zorg, voorbereiding, intimiteit, stilte, zuiverheid en reinheid. De handdoek lijkt te zweven in de ruimte en roept de spanning van een nakende gebeur- tenis op. Honoré δ’O neemt je mee in het verhaal van de aankondiging of annunciatie met een speciaal voor de Sint-Jacobskerk te Gent gecreëerde installatie waar dit kleine boek deel van uit maakt.

    Spoons, Tim Onderbeke

    Artist Tim Onderbeke and jewellery designer Louisa Maria Ponseele combine their fascination for memory, beauty and luxury in the artist book Spoons. On the beach they created shiny utensils with found materials that they pressed into the sand and casted into tin. The result is a beautiful series of fragile, poetic objects with titles such as ‘Spoon for stealing rainbows, ‘Post Poseidon’, ‘Tea for two’ and ‘Moule a gogo’. ‘Moreover, in a typical place setting, spoons are also purchased or given as ornamental objects: as a ceremonial gift at a baptism, as an expression of a lover’s affection or as a souvenir from a journey, be it near or far.', Melanie Deboutte writes. She begins her essay with Botticelli's Birth of Venus, where we see this goddess being carried ashore on a shell. "It is impossible to pinpoint the date at which the first spoon appeared, but somewhere between a hollow shell and an empty palm, a scoop emerged during the course of prehistory.”. After this she takes the reader on a trip through art history with the aid of the spoon.

    Adrift (German version), Ricardo Brey

    The publication reflects the core of Ricardo Brey’s most recent body of works Adrift (2014-ongoing) 



    as well on the core of the overall aspiration of Ricardo Brey for his exhibitions in Museum De Domijnen in Sittard, the Netherlands (10 February – 10 June 2019) and Gerhard-Marcks Haus, Bremen, Germany (1 December 2019 – 1 March 2020). While it is not an artist book in the traditional sense, it is definitively a project by an artist. The aim of the publication is to create a sense of the artistic space that Brey wants to offer, with a polyphony of voices and an immersive sphere in which a quality of behavior is of prime importance. It focusses strongly on his most recent body of works, Adrift



    __



    “… Ricardo Brey’s most recent ongoing body of work lacks the defined cohesiveness of previous artistic projects, which were united by shared formal and thematic concerns. After being confined to a wheelchair for several months due to medical issues, the artist described himself as “drifting around … wandering in my study not … working in my total capacity.” Discovering that this description—“drifting off”—described his new state of mind, he began to create a series of disparate yet interconnected works from, in his words, “fragments that float in my memory, images that have no place in the rigid parameters of my previous work.” Ranging in form from sculptures and installations to photographs and drawings, these works recall earlier projects while breaking new ground.

    Bloedtest

    Wit.h huivert bij de gedachte dat onze medische en technische evoluties geruisloos de samenleving binnensluipen. Terwijl de gevolgen op ethisch vlak soms immens zijn. Wat te denken over de mogelijkheid dat er heel snel geen personen met Down nog geboren worden? Het Museum dr. Guislain en Wit.h bundelen de krachten om een artistiek project te realiseren dat deze bloedtest (de NIP test) en vooral de gevolgen ervan onder de aandacht brengt. Een complexe problematiek, zoveel is duidelijk. Via onderzoek, experiment en een organisch werkproces komen ze tot een unieke presentatie.



    Prof. Dr. Ignaas Devisch bundelde zijn inzichten bij dit project als rode draad in het boek. Over de NIP test zegt hij: “Onze ‘existentiële actieradius’ wordt groter- dat noemen we vrijheid - maar daardoor nemen de morele dilemma’s toe – en dat heet verantwoordelijkheid. Meer vrijheid vraagt meer verantwoordelijkheid, want zodra het leven niet langer ons lot is, maar wat we er zelf van maken, valt aan de plicht om keuzes te maken nauwelijks nog te ontsnappen.”



    Deze uitgave is deel van de Walking Opera ‘Bloedtest’, een inititaief van Wit.h en Museum Dr. Guislain Gent in coproductie met Kunstencentrum Buda Kortrijk, De Beelderij Torhout, De Figuranten Menen, Des Mensen, Kontekt Gent, Passerelle Kortrijk, Theater Stap Turnhout, UGent vakgroep Orthopedagogie, Vives Kortrijk, Vormingplus MZW.

    The Meaning of Things, Matt Mullican

    Now available as pre-order.



    This title is the book-form of a work by Matt Mullican, The Meaning of Things (who feels the most pain?) (2014), consisting of 676 collages and texts on sheets of standard printing paper. At the approximate center of each collage is a small image that appears to be a printout of an image procured from the Internet. Around the images are hand-drawn, quasi-calligraphic marks (in black only), curved, giving the impression of an “organic” form in the manner of ornate, rococo frames. First shown at Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery in Philadelphia, 2016.

    Representing the Work, Matt Mullican

    In the mid-1970’s, Matt Mullican developed a unique artistic language based on pictograms, diagrams and cosmological models. In reaction to conceptual art, this return to the image made the American artist one of the represantatives of the Picture Generation. Alongside these symbols placed on various supports (sheets, books, stained glass, etc.), his performances under hypnosis give expression to that person, an emblematic, even caricatural human figure. In 2018, Matt Mullican created representing the work, an installation mosaic of 64 iconographic illustrations that catalogue the principal chapters of his work.



    This catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Matt Mullican. Representing the Work’ at MAC’s Grand Hornu, 16.02–18.10.2020.
