    The Role of the Story Teller, Richard Tuttle

    €125.00

    "Color is not easy to translate into words. Perhaps color actively resists language or plausible de nition? And vice versa: words can change color. I got this idea from thinking about how color and sound are similar. We can use the same words for both: depth, tone, brightness, etc... ere sound is not ordered in nature, we order it and make music. Color must be the same."

    Richard Tuttle reflects on color during his stay in Ostend in 2017, where his solo exhibition Light And Color was on view at Mu.Zee. It was here that he set out the initial framework for what became The Role Of The Story Teller, a book that invites us to his world of color.

    The book consists of five sections, depicting and illustrating two of his marvellous artist books—Not the Point (2009) and You never see the same color twice (2017)—while connecting them with three exhibitions from 2017, namely his solo-presentation at de Hallen (Haarlem, NL), Books, Multiples, Prints, Writings and New Projects at Galerie Christian Lethert (Cologne,
    DE) and Light and Color at Mu.Zee (Ostend, BE).

    With his documented writings, images of artworks and selections of text, Tuttle departs from concrete notions of color, instead proposing a boundless vision of “real” color. Tuttle’s themes and provocative questions bring together seemingly disparate episodes, providing new ways to consider and experience our own relationship to color.

    Spoons, Tim Onderbeke

    €19.00

    Artist Tim Onderbeke and jewellery designer Louisa Maria Ponseele combine their fascination for memory, beauty and luxury in the artist book Spoons. On the beach they created shiny utensils with found materials that they pressed into the sand and casted into tin. The result is a beautiful series of fragile, poetic objects with titles such as ‘Spoon for stealing rainbows, ‘Post Poseidon’, ‘Tea for two’ and ‘Moule a gogo’. ‘Moreover, in a typical place setting, spoons are also purchased or given as ornamental objects: as a ceremonial gift at a baptism, as an expression of a lover’s affection or as a souvenir from a journey, be it near or far.', Melanie Deboutte writes. She begins her essay with Botticelli's Birth of Venus, where we see this goddess being carried ashore on a shell. "It is impossible to pinpoint the date at which the first spoon appeared, but somewhere between a hollow shell and an empty palm, a scoop emerged during the course of prehistory.”. After this she takes the reader on a trip through art history with the aid of the spoon.

    Adrift (German version), Ricardo Brey

    €39.99

    The publication reflects the core of Ricardo Brey’s most recent body of works Adrift (2014-ongoing) 

    as well on the core of the overall aspiration of Ricardo Brey for his exhibitions in Museum De Domijnen in Sittard, the Netherlands (10 February – 10 June 2019) and Gerhard-Marcks Haus, Bremen, Germany (1 December 2019 – 1 March 2020). While it is not an artist book in the traditional sense, it is definitively a project by an artist. The aim of the publication is to create a sense of the artistic space that Brey wants to offer, with a polyphony of voices and an immersive sphere in which a quality of behavior is of prime importance. It focusses strongly on his most recent body of works, Adrift

    __

    “… Ricardo Brey’s most recent ongoing body of work lacks the defined cohesiveness of previous artistic projects, which were united by shared formal and thematic concerns. After being confined to a wheelchair for several months due to medical issues, the artist described himself as “drifting around … wandering in my study not … working in my total capacity.” Discovering that this description—“drifting off”—described his new state of mind, he began to create a series of disparate yet interconnected works from, in his words, “fragments that float in my memory, images that have no place in the rigid parameters of my previous work.” Ranging in form from sculptures and installations to photographs and drawings, these works recall earlier projects while breaking new ground.

    Strandjongen, Nathalie Teirlinck & Ingrid Godon

    €19.99

    Op een dag ontwaakt een jongen zonder herinneringen op het strand. Via talrijke ontmoetingen leert hij de regels van het spel. Of leren de anderen nog het meest van hem?

    Strandjongen gidst de jonge lezer doorheen de belevingswereld van deze bijzondere ­jongen. Samen met hem delen we de ­verwondering om alles voor het eerst te ontdekken en worden we deelgenoot van zijn kleurrijke ontmoetingen met badgasten en strand­jutters, bloemenverkopers en strandwerkers, vissen en ijsjes. 

    Aan de hand van het hoofdpersonage exploreert auteur en regisseur Nathalie Teirlinck het universele verlangen naar geborgenheid en een thuis. Een modern sprookje dat op een speelse manier reflecteert over prangende thema’s als ‘anders zijn’, vriendschap en ­eigenwaarde. 

    Met prachtige illustraties van kunstenares Ingrid Godon, inclusief openvouwers.

    A production of Inspiratum. 
    Published by Inspiratum and audioMER.

    audioMER. is honoured to announce the release of a new CD; Blue Veil with music by Mireille Capelle (BE) and HERMESensemble*.

    The world of Mireille Capelle is one of music and theatre. She has performed as a singer in numerous European opera houses, under the artistic direction of the foremost stage directors and conductors. She is member of the artistic board of HERMESensemble. Mireille Capelle has a particular affinity with contemporary music and art, characterized by many encounters with the most important contemporary composers. Blue Veil is a sonic architecture composed for the exhibition I Fortuny. Una Storia di Famiglia, curated by Daniela Ferretti, at Palazzo Fortuny, in Venice from May 6 till November 24, 2019. The essence of the piece was inspired by the installation of Axel Vervoordt and Tatsuro Miki in the wabi-space of the palace.

    A live performance with artist Marie Balcaen took place on 27 September 2019 at Palazzo Fortuny.

    Mireille Capelle in her words about the piece:
    “I took two pieces of white marble stones—both sculptural and radiant. I banged and rubbed them. In Venice I recorded the sounds of the bells of San Marco and the rustling of the water. I remembered the words coming to me. Sometimes they came very clear, sometimes barely understandable. Stemming from my fictional journey into the past, the words of Proust and d’Annunzio arrived… I catch Wagner’s breath as in his Shepherd’s Song… The whisper of a great white sail in the wind… In Blue Veil Henriette Fortuny—the silent muse—appears. Her pink dress and blue veil are floating in the wind… There is light of sounds and shadows. Blue Veil is both a quest for transparency and a path of perpetual repetition. I wanted this piece to allow us to hear the inaudible. I wanted to enlarge what is hidden in sound. “Eternity is the one who is, who will be and who was”. This sentence from Plato signifies to me that we are all particles of eternity.”

    AB(ee), J-M Bytebier

    €29.90

    Jean-Marie Bytebier (°1963) graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Gent in 1988. Together with artists such as Wim Delvoye (°1965) he focuses mainly on the possibilities of how painting could be presented in order to understand our increasingly complicated postmodern society. In doing so he wants to seal the gap with conceptual art, as opposed to a previous generation of contemporary artists in Belgium, which followed the new German painting. Bytebier places the paintings in diptychs, triptychs and quadriptychs. Bringing together various small paintings influencing one another was one of his first steps to question the complete painting. There was no univocal answer, but different possibilities.

He breaks all the works that does not satisfy him. He throws away everything that does not move his soul.
