“I don’t remember, but since I was very young, drawing is one habit of mine. After many changes and attempts, I worked on the same type of drawing for about six or seven years. I made a book out of some of the drawings I worked on. Of course, personal things will also be reflected but there is no topic and answer. I just do the act of drawing habitually. It can be personal or universal. It looks like a familiar person or a familiar character shape, or it is not. You can also watch fairy tales and cartoons. Or it may seem like an extreme reality. Or lines and lumps. Or just paper and graphite. It seems to be full, or it is empty, repetition and flow, or there is a difference and disconnection. And it was planned or happened to happen to be. It is constantly familiar and unfamiliar between everything and something. The size, paper and texture of the book are also parts of this context.”

A Female Gaze. Tristram Aver. Beam Editions

A Female Gaze explores the paintings and drawings of contemporary artist Caroline Walker through the lens of Laura Knight, arguably Nottingham’s most famous artist and the first woman to be elected a Royal Academian.

Seperated by 100 years, both artists are united through their observations of women in everyday life, from moments of motherhood to women at work and the mundanity of domestic life.

With essays by Jennifer Higgie and Tristram Aver, this book contributes to rebalancing the gender bias legacy within art history, while celebrating the powerful artistic qualities of two extraordinary painters.

This book was published to accompany a major Nottingham Castle Trust exhibition, ‘Laura Knight and Caroline Walker: A Female Gaze.

Antarctic Resolution. Giulia Foscari, UNLESS (Eds.). Lars Müller Publishers

Accounting for approximately 10 % of the land mass of Planet Earth, the Antarctic is a Global Commons we collectively neglect. Far from being a pristine natural landscape, the continent is a contested territory which conceals resources that might prove irresistible in a world with an ever-increasing population. The 26 quadrillion tons of ice accumulated on its bedrock, equivalent to around 70 % of the fresh water on our planet, represent the most significant repository of scientific data available. It provides crucial information for future environmental policies, and, at the same time, is the greatest possible menace to global coastal settlements when sea levels rise because of global warming.

On the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica, Antarctic Resolution offers a high-resolution image of this hyper-surveilled yet neglected continent. In contrast to the fragmented view offered by Big Data companies, the book is a holistic study of the continent’s unique geography, unparalleled scientific potential, contemporary geopolitical significance, experimental governance system, and extreme inhabitation model. A transnational network of multidisciplinary polar experts – represented in the form of authored texts, photographic essays, and data-based visual portfolios – reveals the intricate web of growing economic and strategic interests, tensions, and international rivalries, which are normally enveloped in darkness, as is the continent for six months of the year.

Hold That Thought. Johannes Langkamp. Unformed Informed (Publishing)

Posted in art, Artist Book on June 5th, 2022
Tags: , , , ,

Including a text written by Sandra Smets specifically for the book (in NL, DE and EN).

Hold That Thought is a walk through the work of visual artist Johannes Langkamp. This book is a reflection of an archive with (digital) works of art, experiments, (kinetic) models and their documentation. In it moving images are brought to a standstill, only to be put in motion again by its reader. Walk, run, detour, stroll. Discover this book about motion, in motion.

Johannes Langkamp’s (Rotterdam, NL) work arises from wonder, curiosity, and experimentation. Consumed by the question ‘What happens if…’ he searches for the unexpected. Through an ever-expanding archive of his work — videos, photographic techniques, kinetic models, and spatial installations —Langkamp studies the interplay between process and result. These outcomes (finds or failures) capture moments from our everyday life, simulate movements, or facilitate ways to interrupt our viewing habits. Exposing material that broadens our view of reality itself.

HAWAPI 2017 – El Triángulo Terrestre. HAWAPI

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

In the space where the Perú-Chile border meets the Pacific coastline, lies a triangle of approximately 3.7 hectares. Known as the “Triángulo Terrestre”, this piece of land has been causing diplomatic disputes between the two nations since the middle of the 20th century. Despite its relatively small size (equivalent to Parque Kennedy in Lima or Madison Square Park in New York) and having no agricultural, commercial or strategic value the Triángulo Terrestre has been in dispute since the signing of the 1929 treaty between Perú and Chile. The disputed land has acquired a symbolic value employed at different times by the governments of each country for political purposes.​

In April 2017, HAWAPI, in partnership with Galería Metropolitana (Chile) took a group of 13 artists (5 Peruvians, 5 Chileans, 1 Bolivian, 1 Israeli and 1 North American) to camp in Santa Rosa—the closest village to the “Triángulo Terrestre”. During four days camping on site, the group generated a series of artistic interventions and actions to contemplate in situ the social, political, economic and physical impact created by this dispute; before moving to Tacna where they staged an exhibition of their work in the independent cultural centre, Laramamango.
