  2. Cylinder 8, Joris Van de Moortel

    Cylinder 8, Joris Van de Moortel

    €10.00

    Comics were Van de Moortel’s first love: his first drawings, his first stories; a dwelling of fantasies and a lack of reality: he devored them as a child. His first publications with MER. Paper Kunsthalle, the Cylinder Series, is not a real comic book series, but the idea is based on the structure of it. It fits perfectly to get Van de Moortel’s work published. The sketches, the colouring, the humour that feels close to the practice: it’s a work in itself and not just a representation of images. The artist prints one new Cylinder issue on the occasion of each new project or exhibition. Each cahier has a unique design and cover. Each will be published separately at first; becoming one book after 10 editions that will be published as a whole. Every edition is a new adventure having the same basic players, added, transformed. It’s one big playground: like a show. This is the sequel to Cylinder # 7. It is the eight issue in the Cylinder Series.

    Shozo Shimamoto

    €35.00

    A founding member of the Japanese avant-garde Gutai movement, Shozo Shimamoto (1928- 2013, Japan) is one of the first Japanese painters to ban the paintbrush. Shimamoto was well known for using different media and exploring different concepts of time and space, while simultaneously focusing on mechanic methods within his practice. As such, he perforated canvases or smashed glass bottles on them, which were filled with paint. He shot paint with cannons on large sheets of vinyl, made sculptures from razorblades, scratched films, and made violent and destructive installations with light and music for the theatre stage. Shimamoto’s so-called “performances of destruction” were mostly executed in the public space thereby exhibiting the new artistic spirit of those times. Despite the distinct resemblance between Gutai projects and avant-garde artists such as Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein and Antoni Tàpies, the Japanese artists’ influence on the Western avant-garde has never fully been acknowledged. This publication comes out on the occasion of the Shozo Shimamoto exhibition (14th of March– 5th of May 2012) and the Shimamoto – The Gutai Works exhibition (3th of September – 3th of October 2015), which were held at the Axel Vervoordt Gallery.

    Libretto, Daniel Buren: a fresco

    €30.00

    French artist Daniel Buren (°1938) is best known for his fixed pattern of white and colored vertical stripes, which are inspired by the screens that shade Parisian bistro terraces. Because of the temporary nature of Buren's work, it seems impossible to initiate a classical retrospective. Buren nevertheless accepted the offer that BOZAR, Brussels Palais des Beaux-Arts, offered him to curate the exhibition A Fresco. This show's intention is twofold. On the one hand the artist created a film especially for the exhibition which recalls his lost interventions as much as possible. On the other hand, Buren has connected his trademark stripes to existing work by over 100 renown artists from the 20th and 21st centuries, such as Paul Cézanne, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Sol LeWitt, Pierre Huyghe and many more. Both these set ups as well as BUren's new interventions in the BOZAR are what A Fresco is all about: a unique show running from February 19th till May 22nd. 

    The accompanying publication is conceived as a newspaper, by analogy with The Buren Times, which Daniel Buren made especially for the 2005 exhibition devoted to his art in 2005 at the Guggenheim in New York. Libretto comprises several headers such as the exhibition itself, a review of past interventions by the artist in Belgium and beyond. Featuring texts by amongst others Daniel Buren, Joël Benzakin, Bernard Blistène, Rudi Fuchs, Luk Lambrecht, Frederik Leen and Paul Dujardin.

    AB.ad., Jean-Marie Bytebier

    €39.00

    Jean-Marie Bytebier (°1963) is a Belgian artist, whose work references several 20th-century painting traditions in which the unfinished and the notion of absence play prominent parts. With his paintings Bytebier creates an intriguing world of often undetermined landscapes; a foliage of silent and blurry spaces devoid of human beings but in which the cultural remnants of humanity subtly seep through. Three decades of artistic practice are now gathered in a publication from which any textual explanation is banned. The result is an artist’s book that puts the visual world of Bytebier through new sequences to the fore, thus triggering new meanings that alter the art book, from a canonical catalogue to a new work of art.

    Echo, Tina Gillen

    €24.50

    The book Echo takes as its starting point the eponymous exhibition by Tina Gillen (°1972, Luxembourg) in the Council Chamber of the Centre for Fine Arts (BOZAR), and links it to other works she has made since 2009. The result? A book filled with associative echoes that zoom in and out from the work, conceived in five clusters that resonate with as many artworks in the exhibition. It also offers a fine overview of a colourful oeuvre that unfurls in a broad spectrum, in a volume that spellbindingly assembles all of the artist’s themes. Featuring an essay by Eva Wittocx (Museum M, Leuven).

    Ghost Shift III, Stefaan Dheedene

    €0.00

    Ghost Shift is a) a closed display case housing a circular table saw and a copy machine, b) a the simultaneous performing of sawing and copying by two actors in the Ghost Shift display case, c) a series of books, registers of the consecutive Ghost Shift performances. On January 31, 2009 at Deweer Gallery in Otegem, Belgium, Stefaan Dheedene systematically sawed small wooden beams into pieces as small as he could make them. Deborah Delva simultaneously began copying on A4 paper, starting from a blank sheet, always using the latest copy as the original. A process of photographic feedback started. Another process was that of physical interference: sawdust gathering on the glass plate of the copy machine. The performance ended when all wood was cut. This publication is a collection of centerfold pages that can be removed for exhibition purposes. The publication Ghost Shift III comes in an edition 3 copies; all signed and numbered by the artist. Price on request.

    Coin perdu, Sofie Van der Linden

    €25.00

    In the late 19th century, Emile Van Doren painted the Genk landscape from his artist villa Coin Perdu. Artists from home and abroad visited there to put their impressions of the then desolate Campine landscape on canvas. In the early 20th century,
the environment changes abruptly. Three mines, three districts, three churches, three shopping streets. A large town hall is built in the old village centre, worthy of a city. Major roads connect the new mining sites.
Now that mining has disappeared, fragmented remnants of built urbanity are all that remains. The roads are too large,
the neighbourhoods have grown tired and the old town hall seems misplaced. The irregularities in the landscape come to the fore and give the city an unusual character. Like the landscape painters of the 1900s, Sofie Van der Linden (°Turnhout, 1986) draws the surroundings of Genk in Coin Perdu.
The publication Coin Perdu was set up as a road atlas. A series of ten drawings were printed life-size, folded and cut. The drawings were realized during a work residency at FLACC in Genk.
Cornel Bierens wrote a text to accompany the drawings by
Sofie Van der Linden.
