    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.

    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.

    Flotsam, Debby Huysmans

    The photos of Debby Huysmans expose the daily reality she encounters during her trips to former communist countries. The artist is fascinated by the current changes post communism and dedicated to document this shift to modernization. She is not limited by narrative restrictions in her search of authentic moments. Indulging in a world we do not dwell upon the pictures have an otherworldly sense of peace. And although not depicting our reality, the images bear a strong feeling of familiarity, showing a transforming world before it disappears forever. By documenting simple, almost banal daily fragments and ignoring common aesthetic rules she captures what is almost invisible.
