    Third Eye, Luc Dondeyne

    Available for pre-order, shipping will start from 18 November.



    Through his work, Luc Dondeyne offers us his view of the world. He gives us the opportunity to look together with him by showing us sometimes literally that he looks at the world through a lens. This looking together results in special and unusual compositions, such as portraits without face or with the face turned away, as well as people who are portrayed from the back. The spectator thus becomes part of the triangular relationship Dondeyne deliberately involves himself and ourselves in: the triangle between the artist as viewer, spectator and maker. Those looking at the works are in the middle of this triangle, and consequently they become part of the artist’s gaze and therefore also of the work.



    The intuition, imagination and inner wisdom with which the third eye or the sixth chakra fills us, may also open the gate to the collective memory, on which not only Dondeyne relies but also the spectator who looks at the artist’s works. Frequently, Dondeyne refers in his titles and images consciously or subconsciously to the history of art and culture. He invites us to open our own third eye and to join him to tap into his huge source of knowledge and associations that allows him to connect that which he sees through the third eye with that which he depicts thereof on the canvas or on paper, and with the spectator who contemplates the final result.

    Tim Onderbeke , Labyrinth

    __



    I’m very sensitive to the ‘appearance’ of a building in an environment. As I wandered through the Flemish landscape, I was drawn to the aesthetics of these properties and to the host of ever-changing impressions concerning styles, spatial planning, functions and eras. 



    I’m not an architect. I’m not guided by plans or texts. The architecture allows me to create a new image: the poetry of lines — which is why Le Corbusier’s Poème de l’angle droit is so resonant — , the compositions, the materials that are specific to the building. It enables me to discover architecture as an image, as something layered and complex.



    I look at the architecture through the lens of my camera, the architecture exists for me as an image, not as an object or as a character. It is a search for a mental space that withdraws from the power of architecture.

    Dumitru, Michel Mazzoni

    "Dumitru is a project started in 2015. The corpus of images that composes it comes mainly from archives relating to the period of the reign of the Ceaucescu dictatorship in Romania (1974/1989). Missed Utopias, lost dreams, technologies that have become obsolete ... For four years, I drew on these images, scrutinized and enlarged their surfaces, revisited places by making new shots, trying out new assemblies, such as a montage game, until evidence emerges.



    The book is a posthumous tribute to Dumitru Bedeleu who had meticulously kept these documents and without whom I could not have realized it. This was for me a starting point, to experiment with new data and come to hinder the purely documentary nature of photography.



    The book was thought as simply and radically as possible. The double pages combine the principles of echo and telescoping. No binding, no cover. The pages can be organized in a different order, it is possible to fold them or pin them on the wall ... All the writings are grouped on a red card in the center of the book. The color used is symbolic at this time, the cardboard overflows of one centimeter on two sides, which makes it apparent when the book is closed. The paper used gives a sensation and touch close to these period newspapers."

    Some Art Sites of Recent Historical Interest in America, Julião Sarmento

    This artist book brings together 32 photographs by Portuguese multimedia artist and painter Julião Sarmento (°1948, Lisbon) of sites in America that were once locations of art-historical importance. 



    Julião Sarmento is one of the most notable members and instigators of a wave of Portuguese artists emerging in the wake of the democratic regime in Portugal. Because of his assertive participation in post-war artistic reflections and because of the certainty and consistency of his discourse, Sarmento’s work was rapidly appreciated by the international art scene; resulting in group and solo shows and representations in major galleries throughout the world.cities.

    Saudade, Laura De Coninck

    Met het boek ‘Saudade’ doet Laura een oproep naar ambassadeurs van het woord. Ze hoopt zo veel mogelijk mensen te ‘besmetten’ met de liefde voor dit woord, zodat het gedeeld en gemeengoed wordt.



    Toen ze het woord hoorde en de betekenis bij herhaling tot haar doordrong, ervaarde ze dit als een soort thuiskomen. Het was alsof plotseling alles op zijn plaats viel; haar oeuvre en dat wat haar dreef om te schilderen had plots een gemeenschappelijke noemer gevonden, een vlag die de lading dekt. En ze ontdekte nog iets anders: wat zij tracht uit te drukken in beelden is net zo onbestemd als wat haar vader probeerde uit te drukken in zijn poëzie.



    Laura vertrok bij het maken van deze bundel met het neerschrijven van emoties. Waarvan de sfeer zich vertaalde in beelden. In een poging om op een zachtere manier over de werkelijkheid te communiceren dan woorden kunnen doen. Woorden schieten vaak tekort, kunnen harder aankomen dan bedoeld en worden vaak verkeerd begrepen. Om haar waarheid uit te drukken grijpt Laura bij voorkeur naar een beeldentaal. Het is een zachte manier van spreken over datgene wat haast onzegbaar is. Een gesprek zonder woorden over Saudade en de kracht en de fragiliteit van de liefde.





    “De emotionele werelden die haar vader kon oproepen op zijn unieke manier, met de juiste woorden, roept Laura op met eenzelfde authenticiteit aan de hand van een ingetogen samenspel van lijnen, beelden, inkt en papier. Ik lees haar graag."

    Adrift (English version), Ricardo Brey

    Available for pre-order, shipping will start from 2 December.





    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.

    The Zandberg Drawing, Danny Bergeman

    The Zandberg Drawing is the silent, loyal and monumental witness of the sustained and painstaking work of Danny Bergeman (°1960, Izegem). In September 2011, Bergeman first set pencil to paper in an A3 sketchbook while on holiday in France. He started to draw small, precise and recognisable motifs that he observed, such as the façade of a house, a roof, and so on. Back in Belgium, he continued to work in his sketchbook in the De Zandberg art workshop in Harelbeke, albeit that his drawings were now based on his observation and interpretation of reproductions and images in (art) books, catalogues and magazines. Over time he filled all the pages in his sketchbook with an almost endless array of abstract shapes, that were derived from the images in these books. Eight years later, Danny declared that the work was finished when he arrived on the last page. The Zandberg Drawing now offers everyone the opportunity to follow Bergeman’s drawing project, which took several years to complete, in chronological order and in its entirety. The book challenges us, both as a reader and a spectator, confronting us with the sustained effort and wordless yet magnificent visual art achievement of an unassuming man who set himself a formidable goal.
