    Dirk Vander Eecken

    €29.50

    At a first viewing of Dirk Vander Eecken's recent work, I was peripherally reminded of the edition "Erster Blick" (2000) of the German artist Gerhard Richter. This simple appropriation of a page from the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung shows a photo with a text fragment of the first image of the inside of an atom, made by scientists at the University of Augsburg. It is an edition in which Gerhard Richter expresses his fascination for what underlies the material world, or what it is made up of. Concrete reality is tipped over through a microscopic examination that creates a mysterious image which evades all human control. Gerhard Richter also painted, after an illness, snow landscapes that conjure up a similar fascination with a landscape that exists but is temporarily covered with a layer of white snow. In a similar way, the oeuvre of Dirk Vander Eecken is an attempt at creating a continuum, an attempted contemplation of "realities" that directly opposes the routinous perception of the overpressurised rustling reality that surrounds us.

    Dark Room, Frederik Bruylant

    €20.00

    The first hardcover part of the work consists of a series of polaroid pictures, taken in Dark Rooms and Sex clubs. Bruylant chooses not to depict the visitors in action, but focusses on the surroundings. We see parking lots, dressing rooms, staircases, walls,... The second poster edition portrays a more human angle, forming a surreel tableau vivant of the sex club underworld.

    Recyclable Refugee Camp, Ives Maes

    €29.90

    The Belgian artist Ives Maes started his Recyclable Refugee Camp project in an ironic attempt to make 100% ethic correct art. By this statement Maes refers to a tradition of the ethical obligation that art should have a social relevance. The result is a Gesamtkunstwerk of recyclable living units existing of organic structures such as hideaways, latrines and water sources built according to the rules of the UN Refugee Agency. Maes questions the touristic view in which we look at the world, the voyeuristic impulse of the human being and the documenting role the art world tries to fulfil.
