Perfect is my death word. James Lee Byars. CNEAI=Conception Guy Schraenen.

Textes en français de Guy Schraenen et Thomas Deecke.

En novembre 2009, Conny Purtill vient de Philadelphie en résidence sur la Maison Flottante du Cneai afin d’explorer la collection Fmra. Il intervient dans dix publications selon un même processus qui consiste à remplacer la page 11/12 par une page gravée et dessinée par lui. Les pages extraites de ces dix livres sont rassemblées dans un dossier et constituent l’oeuvre “10, 11, and 12”. En parallèle, Conny Purtill réalise des interventions à peine perceptibles au crayon dans une sélection d’ouvrages de la collection Fmra. Les livres sont réinsérés tels quels dans la collection, sans mention particulière. Des aiguilles dans une bottes de foin…

After a game-changing year when Europe, in all its tangible and intangible consequences reached far and wide, BDP are proud to announce one of our most ambitious compilations of art, writing and investigation on our contemporary’s troubled, shape-shifting realities. In a unique dual book publication (English/Spanish editions) edited by the group ‘Correspondence from Eyjafjallajökull’ the book contains the artistic results and research of the group, along with eleven probing and insightful carefully selected ‘collaborations’. These diverse entries take many forms, including fiction, essay, polemnic,
After working together as a research group centering around the event that was Eyjafjallajökull in May 2010, ‘Correspondence from Eyjafjallajökull’ went about re-examining the idea of Europe. With no air traffic possible, Europe found itself connected in a very physical way, a unity that is the opposite in many ways of how ‘Europe’ has been so recently conceived. Through various forms of artistic research and development new, kaleidoscopic perspectives of Europe came about, moving from peripheries such as Turkey and Iceland itself, moving inward to the imaginative world of European identity creation.

With a strong focus on the problematic nature of European discourse as it currently is offered, the recent rise of protests movements in Spain appear in contributions from Maria Ptqk, Emanuele Guidi, Juan Freire and Santiago Eraso: the 15th May Movement in Spain and The Arab Spring pre-dated but also foretold the wider Occupy movement of 2012, an incredible year in which protest and the right to protest swept the world in myriad forms. The playful use of fiction to create stories and identity is evident in contributions from Pavla Ascher, John Holten and Alan Pauls. Re-imagining the line of Europe’s borders opens the anthology with Urzsula Wozniak’s essay on Turkey’s relationship with Europe, while Markus Miesson offers an extension of the realm of what can be thought of as ‘Europe’ with an extract from his East Coast Europe project.

Sleeperhold Publications 4 – MOTTO@WIELS 14.04.12

Posted in books, graphic design, Motto @ Wiels, Uncategorized on March 29th, 2012


Sleeperhold Publications is an ephemeral platform for artist publications and functions as a valid excuse to experiment with the creation of content, different media and ways of distributing,… So far SHP released a photobook, a silkscreen posterset and a deck of gaming cards. There are no fixed methodologies in dealing with creation and, at its best, an entirely different tactic will be applied to every SHP number.

The fourth release on Sleeperhold is a paperback which functions as a collection of short stories. The work of the 14 artists shown in this publications functions as one continuous storyline, but every chapter can easily stand on it’s own.

Contributions by Beni Bischof, Jason Fulford, Dr Phullip Cribb, We Have Photoshop, Hiromi Nakajima, B.H. Friedman, Ferdinand Kriwet, Ward Heirwegh, Lieven Lahaye, Sara Deraedt, Aurélien Arbet, Jérémie Egry & Nicolas Poillot, J.G. Ballard, David Horvitz & Peter Sutherland. A text functioning as an interlude was written by Serge Delbruyère and Dirk Van Bastelaere.

Publisher: Sleeperhold Publications
Design: Ward Heirwegh
Language: English
224 pages, 16 x 22 cm
