    A skydog's time. A skydog's place, Jochem Vanden Ecker

    A skydog’s time. A skydog’s place, is an artist's book dealing with notions of unbuiltness on many different levels. It is based on both the book ‘projet pour un livre. projet pour un film.’ by Nico Dockx and Helena Sidiropoulos (in its turn based on an unpublished catalogue of Marcel Broodthaers) published by RA in 2009 and a selection of raw photographic footage of an unfinished abandoned skytrain shot between August 2007 and January 2009 in Bangkok Thailand. Numbered and signed in a limited edition of 100 copies.

    I, the Dog of my Master, Diego Tonus

    This book consists of thirty-six preparatory sketches used for the making of I, the Dog of my Master, an animation that refers to a video taken with a mobile phone, in which a dog has been filmed throughout the course of a day. The artist has redrawn each frame constituting this video (1'58") over a period of two years (2006-2008), focusing on the main subject and its gestures. Both camera movements and the animation technique used to retrace each image, contribute to enhance the cinematographic quality of the video and to spectacularize a personal everyday life moment. Numbered and signed by the artist in an edition of 200 copies; with poster.

    Towards the soul of the wine bottle, Adriaan Verwée

    Artist edition specially designed on the occasion of MER. Station 11, held at Netwerk, Aalst (B) in the Spring of 2015. Each of the 20 boxes contains Verwée's artist book 'Under a poor cloak you commonly find a good drinker' and a signed and numbered silk-screen print. 

    In his MER. Station 'Towards the soul of the wine bottle’, artist Adriaan Verwée (°1975) explored the possibilities for translating his artist’s book back into a spatial intervention. Starting from the individuality of his practice, which is characterized by a particular interest in architecture, a startling process of transformation takes place. With a powerful physical gesture, the artist demolished the sculptural contours of Netwerk and allowed a new installation to rise from the ruins. The remains of the presentation material were reorganized in the new order and supplemented by new works created specifically for the site. These objects in turn relate to the soul of his publication, the hollow space in which artistic sediment accumulates.

    Through and Through, Dimitri Vangrunderbeek

    For this artist's book, Dimitri Vangrunderbeek carefully placed old mirrors and glass from second-hand table tops -often large, heavy and fragile- on drying paper, and subsequently traced them with a pencil. A 10-metre long drawing of partly overlapping tracings was used to connect to the space of Vangrunderbeek's studio. It was laid out on working tables across the three rooms of his studio on a structure of hardboard sheets. In an attempt to connect the drawing to space, a couple of mirrors were again positioned on the tracings and were partly traced with a cutter. When cutting out forms from the drawing, the hardboard appeared through the paper. When cutting further across the hardboard, fragments of tabletops of the supporting working tables and fragments of the studio floor became visible. A selection of tables, objects and sculptures present in Vangrunderbeek's studio was used to compose the views of the different holes in the drawing, with the intention of accentuating the essences of their formal and material qualities. This artist's book was published within the framework of the author's PhD research and in conjunction with the exhibition "Dealing with Ordinary Form" held at Netwerk, Aalst from March 29th til June 13th 2015. Edition of 250 copies, 125 signed and numbered (€ 50).

    Book #1 L01 2018, Pieter Huybrechts & Erki De Vries

    With Book #1 L01 2018 Erki De Vries and Pieter Huybrechts present the first result of their enquiry into the spatial potential of a book. In line with their earlier work that focused on spatiality considered from installation art and photography, in Book #1 the two artists explore an extra layer by integrating the medium art book. Can the architectural use of this art form possibly result in new images and experiences?

    Starting from an in situ installation that literally positions the environment, scale model and photography on a single line, the transformation into an art book creates a particularly hybrid experience of space. Immaterial trompe l’oeils and the material dimensions of the book are literally built on top of each other. Virtual images, the essence of architectural elements and type page fade into each other as a material montage on the interface of film, photography and mental architecture.
