    Inland Voyages in An Inland Voyage, Mira Sanders

The network of lines as well as the physical and temporal trajectories of her wanderings, constitutes through her drawings, videos and installations, a work of fiction inspired by the everyday and the trivial. As an invitation to multiple travels, Inland Voyages in An Inland Voyage was presented during two exhibitions, at Argos – Center for Art and Media in Brussels in 2016 and at the Musée d’art contemporain de la ­Haute-Vienne, Château de Rochechouart in 2018.

    Toshio Shibata Laurent Ney

    This publication presents hundred photographs taken by Japanese artist Toshio Shibata (°1949), from the bridges and special structures designed by architect engineer Laurent Ney (°1964). In this book, both artist and designer meet; offering two worlds and two media that come together. For both creators, context is the starting point of their work, whether it is context as natural surroundings or in a broader sense. In Shibata’s work, Ney recognizes themes that inspire him whilst in the process of designing: the space, the time, geometry, materiality and poetry.  But it is surely the ‘outsider’s’ viewpoint that makes Shibata’s images of Ney’s constructions so intriguing. They reveal a multi-layered reality that can be understood at multiple levels.

Sa vie est entièrement placée sous le signe de l'imagination et de la poésie. Découvrez l'amour fou dans l'alphabet d'étoiles d'E.L.T. Mesens.

    The Making of Meeting, Els Silvrants-Barclay, Defne Ayas and Davide Quadrio

    In August 2009, cultural practitioners from around Asia and their ARTHUB ASIA-integrated, match-made peers from the rest of the world came together to discuss and reflect on the dynamic, ongoing echoes of the now-defunct Silk Road trading route and its multiple dimensions. As a four-day symposium, The Making of The New Silk Roads aimed to reassess the complex interconnections within Asia's cultural and artistic spectrum at the beginning of the 21st century. This book summarizes the concerns and thoughts the symposium participants shared, while reflecting on the performative format of meeting that the symposium aimed to be. By extension, it serves as a memento of what its initiator ARTHUB ASIA -a not-for-profit multi-disciplinary platform of curatorial and artistic experimentation- has achieved in its first seven years of existence. The book appears in 4 chapters looking into the personalities, scenography, performance and documentation behind the alternative scheme of meeting that was put to the test in Bangkok and lies at the core of ARTHUB ASIA's activities in Asia and world-wide.

    Capturing the Sensible, Lara Mennes

    Lara Mennes has photographed three empty buildings. Her photographs raise questions about the meaning of these ruins and what they stand for today. The naked architecture, forgotten objects,... The photographs show us that which remains, but also that which is absent, that which people thought was important enough to take with them. It’s just small, insignificant things, traces of human activity, which draw Mennes’ attention because of what they suggest. Footprints on dusty floors, worn tiles, curled photographs, solitary posters on the wall... Each time every inhabitant has added multiple layers of meaning, all of them silent witnesses of bygone times. Like windows on the past, they take us back through time, back to the moment the building was constructed. Mennes’ photographs are still lifes in which objects transcend their physical appearance: they become expressions of memories.
