    Update_6, new technological award

    'UPDATE-6' gives a short overview of how new technological art has developed since the 1950's. At the site 'Zebrastraat Ghent' various renowned and upcoming artists gave their take on the idea of new technological art. This book gives a reflection of this international exhibition and takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the evolution of how the new technological arts have unfolded through history. 



    The appearance, during the 1950's, of electronic and computer tools in the arts, forced artists to a more in-depth knowledge of techniques and their languages to “master” the new instruments that were now put at their disposal by engineers. Artists reacted to this new development in two main ways: either by collaborating with engineers or by learning to use the new techniques themselves. This new undertaking also forced the artist to make an ideological choice: proceed with the idea of art as causa mentale, or consider finding new ways to master the technology and submit it to their artistic needs. In practice of course, this pas de deux was not as straightforward and, over time, many different exchanges and interweavings saw flourishing. This publication aims to provide an overview of the most relevant authors, exhibitions, events and places.

    Ryuji Tanaka

    Ryuji Tanaka’s (1927 – 2014, Japan) work is rooted in the Japanese tradition of nihon-ga, marked by flat spatial expressions lacking in physical depth, fixed motifs and natural pigments dissolved in animal glue applied to paper or silk. At the same time, his work also matches the ideologies of two avant-garde groups of postwar Japanese art: the Pan-real Art Association and Gutai. The first actively introduced Western avant-garde expressions within the Japanese tradition. This is especially visible in the surrealistic works of Tanaka. In a later stage, his works evolve towards abstraction, when Tanaka becomes part of Gutai. This publication comes out on the occasion of the exhibition Ryuji Tanaka, which runs from March 10th till April 30th of 2016 at the Axel Vervoordt Gallery.

  • Cylinder 8, Joris Van de Moortel

    Cylinder 8, Joris Van de Moortel

    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.

    Tongue, Anne-Marie Van Sprang

    Tongue gives a retrospective view on the three-dimensional work of artist Anne-Marie van Sprang (°1960). Through this extensive book the tactile and fragile aspects of her work become visible. The sequences of the book are not ordered chronologically but emerge from the content of her work. Tongue refers to the place within the body where the physical turns into the intellectual. In the same way the conceptual and the physical come together in the work of van Sprang. The publication contains texts of Roos Gortzak and Carel Blotkamp and two artist’s documents.

    Shozo Shimamoto

    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.

    Cross-Examinations, Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei

    Cross-Examinations is an exercise in writing, erasing, and rewriting. Its four, increasingly layered iterations interrogate issues pertaining to torture, pain, and being. They engage a series of texts and works, such as an exchange between Heidegger and Jünger, poetry by John Donne and Jean Daive, a novel by Nachoem Wijnberg, Cranach’s The Martyrdom of Saint Catherine, Broodthaers’ Fémur d’homme belge and Fémur de la femme française. A constant attempt to reassess its own claims, Cross-Examinations is a palimpsest, printed and reprinted until the ink becomes page.

    Libretto, Daniel Buren: een fresco

    De Franse kunstenaar Daniel Buren (°1938) ken je van zijn vast patroon van witte en gekleurde verticale strepen geïnspireerd op luifels van Parijse bistro’s. Door het tijdelijke karakter van Burens werk is een klassieke retrospectieve onmogelijk. Met de tentoonstelling Een Fresco gaat hij de uitdaging voluit aan. Voor het eerst in zijn carrière maakt Buren een film die zoveel mogelijk van zijn verdwenen interventies oproept. In de tentoonstellingszalen van het Brusselse BOZAR, waar van 19 februari tot en met 22 mei een grote overzichtstentoonstelling loopt, verbindt hij zijn strepen met het werk van meer dan 100 kunstenaars. Deze zijn stuk voor stuk grote vertegenwoordigers uit de 20ste en 21ste eeuw, zoals Paul Cézanne, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Sol LeWitt, Pierre Huyghe en vele anderen. Ook buiten het tentoonstellingscircuit belooft Buren de dialoog aan te gaan met de architectuur van het Paleis voor Schone Kunsten. De bijhorende publicatie is opgevat als een krant, naar analogie met The Buren Times uit 2005, gemaakt voor Burens tentoonstelling in het Guggenheim in New York. Libretto bevat diverse rubrieken waaronder de tentoonstelling, maar ook een overzicht van interventies die Daniel Buren in het verleden in België en daarbuiten heeft gemaakt. Met bijdragen van Daniel Buren, Joel Benzakin, Bernard Blistène, Rudi Fuchs, Luk Lambrecht, Frederik Leen en Paul Dujardin.
