“SCREEN” is a multimedia artist book by Arthur Fouray. Its title, embodies his artistic process which spreads here through two main formats: painting / serigraphy on cushions and a printed material. Arthur Fouray began his career in 2015 with his solo show “Specter” at Espace Quark, Geneva. Through art and decoration history, he questions the shift between painting before the industrial revolution and the cinematographic experience. He proposes to the onlooker an art experience which teases the unsaid.

ARTIST TALK
Arthur Fouray in conversation with Rachel Walker
7.30 pm

We are happy to invite you to the launch of Tombolo Presses new publication, an artist book by Arthur Fouray. Its title, “Screen”, embodies his artistic process which spreads here across two main formats : painting/serigraphy on cushions and the artist book. The publication sets a comprehensive entry point into a research Arthur Fouray began in 2015 with his solo show “Spectre” at Espace Quark, Geneva. Through art and decoration history, he questions the shift between painting before the industrial revolution and the cinematographic experience. He proposes to the spectator an art experience which skips interaction by teasing the unsaid.

The launch of the book is accompanied by a talk between Rachel Walker and Arthur Fouray. A bookshelf will display books published by Tombolo Presses in recent years.

ECOCORE 5 – The Issue of Narcissism – BERLIN LAUNCH @ Motto Berlin

Friday 3rd March from 6-9pm

with a collaborative reading and a performance by Eli Pitegoff and Lukas Hofmann / Saliva: ‘Bringing my phone to its destination’.

ECOCORE is an irregularly published and independent ecology magazine exploring the camouflaged souls of ecology and culture. Published by Alessandro Bava since 2011, its latest release is ECOCORE 5: The Issue of Narcissism, which exploits Narcissus as the symbol of the modern subject. What are we as subjects and why is this question so often explored as a discourse of the body? What is our ‘nature’, and how do we get to it? How do we commune with the external as if it weren’t hostile? How do we cultivate an environment we want to participate in? Our psychic/social ecology meets with the environmental in haemorrhage of inner to outer.

Les Editions Fourre-Tout ont remporté, en association avec le collectif AJAP14 et OBRAS, la réalisation du catalogue du Pavillon Français de la 15e Biennale d’Architecture de Venise 2016.

Il s’agit d’abord et avant tout de la formalisation éditoriale d’un propos plus large que le projet scénographique – à savoir, un état des lieux de la France péri-urbaine, et de la transformation de son quotidien. Cet état des lieux se manifeste surtout par une campagne de recension de projets d’architecture auprès d’acteurs locaux, et notamment des Ecoles nationales d’Architecture, qui permettent au livre d’approcher de cette masse critique: au total, près de 150 projets sont documentés dans le livre, qui déploie par ailleurs un discours crtique lié aux thématiques générales de l’exposition.

mono.kultur #40 : EDMUND DE WAAL : W IS FOR WHITE. mono.kultur.

Posted in art, Artist magazine, magazines, Motto Berlin store, writing on June 1st, 2016

monokultur_40_motto_1monokultur_40_motto_2monokultur_40_motto_3monokultur_40_motto_4monokultur_40_motto_5monokultur_40_motto_6monokultur_40_motto_7monokultur_40_motto_8

Edmund de Waal is a potter. His pots, plates, and vessels are the result of craft and mastership, but they are also so much more than that: they are experiments in form and function, abstractions of thoughts on silence and space, on repetition and failure, on substance and fragility, on memory contained.

Edmund de Waal is an artist. He arranges his objects in complex choreographies that are as mysterious as they are mesmerizing. Displayed in galleries and institutions worldwide, his considered installations play with architectural concerns, integrating ideas of space, light and obscurity.

Edmund de Waal is a writer. In 2010, his intimate memoir of a kind, ‘The Hare With Amber Eyes,’ intertwined the biography of a collection of netsuke figures with the biography of his family and became a surprise bestseller, winning several awards. His latest book, ‘The White Road,’ presents a highly personal and engaging research into the history of porcelain.

Whether he sculpts with words or with clay, what Edmund de Waal works with are concepts, ideas, and desires. In a body of work that is at odds with our times and yet oddly successful, his writings and objects overlap and integrate each other in an attempt to understand and transcend our complex relationship with objects and our surroundings.

In an interview with mono.kultur structured like an A-Z of notes and ideas, Edmund de Waal talked about his rules of attachment, the impossibility of repetition, and why ‘doubt’ is the most beautiful word.

Visually, the issue takes inspiration from that most perfect of materials: porcelain. Printed entirely in double-sided splendour, the two finishings of the paper – shiny gloss and smooth matt – evoke the texture of ceramics before and after glazing.

The tools appear in different situations and contexts. Assemblages in motion. The tools are going through different stages, sometimes in focus sometimes blured, moving into new positions. Different dates and months appears.

This publication is made in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the amendment of the Danish constitution. The 1915-constitution gave Danish women the right to vote and stand for election. But also a another group of people got the right to vote in 1915, men and women who did not own household for example people in agriculture, servants or apprentices and journeymen in the trade and craft. People who are classified as legally incapacitated still do not have the vote, and Danish citizenship is still a condition for voting or being a candidate in general elections.
