    About Flowers & Taxis, Werner Mannaers

    Published on the occasion of Werner Mannaers' exposition 'About Flowers & Taxis' at De Garage-Cultuurcentrum Mechelen (16.01.–14.03.2010).

    Active for some thirty years as a painter, Mannaers is a typical example of the artist whose life and being are felt in every fibre of the canvas or paper. As in a diary he digest the emotions of the day in his drawings. Deepened and purified they find a way into his paintings. Erudite and permeated by a great art historical understanding he brings different aspects, trends and influences from art, literature and philosophy together. Sometimes harmonious and serious, sometimes as an ironic clash of images, but often without any distinction between high and low culture.

    'ni apparence ni illusion', Joseph Kosuth

    Published on the occasion of Joseph Kosuth's installation 'Neither Appearance Nor Illusion', an exhibition in the Medieval Louvre, October 22nd 2009 to June 21st 2010.

    Joseph Kosuth installed on the foundation walls of the original Louvre palace 15 neon text lines he appropriated from an artwork he developed to be read on the Internet, a project for young artists at the Brooklyn Museum. In this context combining a medieval archeological site with a historical art institution the exhibition circuit unfolds the field of potential meanings that always has been the hallmark of Kosuth installations.

    Entitled 'Neither Appearance Nor Illusion' in reference to Nietzsche, it is undoubtedly one of the artist's most successful and spectacular interventions to date.

    Texts by Henri Loyrette, Marie-Laure Bernardac and John Welchman and an interview between Joseph Kosuth & Jacinto Lageira.

    This publication and the accompanying video together comprise the 'Oops Wrong Planet' project by Anouk De Clercq.

    Anouk De Clercq investigates the interrelationships between the video image and other art forms.

In this way she unites text, image, architecture and music in three-dimensional installations.

    ZERO 1957-1966, NY 2008

    Published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Zero in New York' at Sperone Westwater, NY, 2008.

    This opulently illustrated catalogue offers a unique English compendium to the Dusseldorf-based Zero movement, which went on to attract an international cadre of collaborators and affiliates including Nanda Vigo, Yayoi Kusama, Yves Klein, Jean Tinguely, Tsuruko Yamazaki, Arman, and many others. Its history is traced from its immediate beginnings in 1957 to its dissolution in 1966, only one year after New York's Museum of Modern Art exhibited 'The Responsive Eye', in which many artists of the Zero avant-garde took part.

    La robe des choses, Jürgen Partenheimer

    For the the exhibition in the S.M.A.K., Partenheimer's conceptual point of departure has been La Robe des Choses, a text from A la Rêveuse Matière by the French author Francis Ponge. Reality is veiled, elusive. There is only one-way to fathom its depths: through thinking. Reflection results in concepts that enable us to penetrate and reconstruct reality. On the other hand, there will always remain elements from reality that elude pure reason and that can only be made visible by art. Partenheimer's work must consequently be interpreted as resulting from a coherent stream of thoughts, with which the artist does not so much want to reveal or evoke a certain reality, as to show us and discuss the reflections that accompany our 'being in this reality'. Quite often dogmas are undermined by new dogmas. That, precisely, is what Partenheimer seeks to avoid. An image, in Partenheimer's view, is only interesting if it can constantly bring about new streams of ideas. The public is thus invited to create the image himself or herself according the artist's theory: 'All sculpture is essentially conceptual. It does not have a final, definite form or a fixed, spatial dimension. As a model, as a monument of the imagination, a sculpture assumes those dimensions, which it needs for the respective environment in which it is shown. Any work may be altered and its dimensions deliberately adapted to the place chosen for its showing, be it a geometrically architectural room or an open, natural space'.

    In Limbo, Martien Van Beeck

    Looking for a photographic subject, Martien Van Beeck became fascinated by the many ways of preservation in a museum of zoology. Mounted skeletons, stuffed and dried animals and jars of specimens are the manifestations of a disruption of the natural process of living and dying. Van Beeck is interested in the decomposing and concomitant disruption of the symbolic dimensions of grief, mourning and rituals. His photographic work is not an attempt to give an opinion towards the scientific motives to preserve specimens, neither is it an attempt to systematically catalogue all the thousands of jars.  The artist approaches every creature one by one and tries to capture a contorted posture, a dramatic gesture, a grotesque strangeness. Through these photographs van Beek also reflects upon his own death and the meaning of death in our society trough time.

    Re-Shade, Gert Robijns

    Monograph on the work of Gert Robijns from 1996 to 2005.

    With small interventions Gert Robijns potters about the construction – that reality is after all – and forces our senses to re-construct the reception of our perception. His search for physical laws that challenge our cultural conventions, produced an impressive series of poetic work, of which this book is the first survey.
