Edition Nord is launching a series of publications called “para/log”, presenting an aspect of an exhibition and/or the attitude of an artist through the form of flexible and conceptual artist’s books, unlike heavy and comprehensive ‘catalogues’. The first publication is Yuki Okumura’s “YUKI OKUMURA”.

Yuki Okumura is a Japanese artist based in Brussels and Maastricht. “YUKI OKUMURA” is a concept book for his latest project, in which he mixes Gordon Matta-Clark and himself. The contents and the design of the book precisely follow a Matta-Clark catalogue published by ICC, Antwerp, 1977.

”Through the auspices of Flor Bex, the former I.C.C. and MuHKA director, and with little-to-no municipal objection, Okumura has nearly finished a major film work in Brussels entitled Welcome Back, Gordon Matta-Clark. The project is nearing completion this summer in conjunction with an exhibition at MISAKO & ROSEN just in front of the streetcar in Minami-Otsuka. It consists of an elaborate series of holes and slices worked out in an almost musical score where a fixed set of elements played their way up and down throughout the layers. A terrific sense of disorientation in walking through multiple times is created by an unnerving elimination of death and from perspectives not normally visable in a living”. ––– From the press release of his solo show “Yuki Okumura”, Misako & Rosen, Tokyo, 2017

This book also has a special edition that encloses an artwork of Okumura in the form of photographic prints mounted on both sides of an aluminum plate., Edition Nord, Japan

A Step Towards the Sea tells the relationship between the artist and Italy through a selection of installation views and video works. The accompanying DVD includes an unreleased film and a documentation on every actions carried out in Italy by Signer since the 1990s.
Signer’s bond with the country is a special one, bearing in mind some of his most renown works, produced on the Stromboli volcano, or the numerous actions and sculptures that revolve around an Italian iconic subject such as the Ape Piaggio. The central section of the book is dedicated to Sardinia, with a conversation between Lorenzo Giusti and the artist and a photographic essay by Barbara Signer. A text by Barbara Casavecchia contextualizes Signer’s Italian dimension by introducing the viewing of Reisen Italien: a personal collection of filmic notes produced by the artist in the course of his journeys with the family in the 1990s. The essay by Rachel Withers introduces the hefty iconographic setting of his entire Super-8 production, which consists of 205 clips filmed between 1975 and 1989 and presented in a large installation within the exhibition in Nuoro. The book is accompanied by a DVD which, in addition to the unreleased film, gathers all of the actions Signer carried out in Italy starting from the 1990s and a piece he produced specifically for the exhibition, after which the book is titled.
Published following the exhibition “Roman Signer. Films and Installation,” at the MAN, Nuoro, from April 22 to July 3rd, 2016.
Born 1938 in Appenzell, Switzerland, Roman Signer lives and works in St. Gallen.

The non-Objective World

Presenting a body of work made by Art & Language between 1965 and 1967 together with paintings by Ilya Kabakov made forty years later but very much concerned with the same critical aesthetic ideas, the publication aims to investigate the artists’ understanding and response to The Non-Objective World – Malevich’s seminal writings on Suprematism, written in 1927 and published in English in 1959 for the first time.

Edited by Jill Silverman van Coenegrachts with texts by Art & Language, Matthew Jesse Jackson, Ilya Kabakov, Rod Mengham and Andrei Nakov.

“I have been collecting Sol LeWitt books for some time now – initially these books were used as material for a series of animations – but slowly I started buying them just to complete a collection. The search for the white spine.

Sol’s books are predominately white and when going through the shelves of book dealers I always pull out the white books with hope… repetition and repeat is a constant – I often acquire the same book twice or even three times… they all look the same.

In 2005 I produced a book called Cover Version – it featured all the covers of my Sol LeWitt books – a kind of what’s in my library compendium.

For this new piece I have fabricated an abstract version of Cover Version.

The books were laid out as if on a small table top – each book carefully measured… height, width and thickness… Certain book sellers use a similar display technique.

This was then transformed into five medium density fibre board wall mounted relief panels. Expertly cut and routed (not by me) to follow the forms given by Mr LeWitt and his publications. The painted and sanded surface made by the fabricator has been left to give the appropriate patina to the entire piece.

Books are there to be handled and not just bought and sold.”
