Alexandra Leykauf. Roma Publications @ Motto Berlin. 17.03.2016

Alexandra Leykauf, in conversation with Dominikus Müller about her new book published by Roma Publications
from 7pm

Book excerpt:
Caroline Soyez Petithomme: … the reproduction of your own work is always at stake, and even more so here in the context of the current book: an artist’s book and an autonomous work playing with the publication format as opposed to a conventional exhibition catalogue or a classical artist’s monograph. Was this a way for you to ‘get around’ the reproduction of your works?

Alexandra Leykauf: … I consider installation views not only as documents of a past situation, but as something like shards, pieces of a whole — to stay with the metaphor of the kaleidoscope you introduced. You’ve suggested earlier that there is an “elsewhere” that arises within the various layers of reproduction in my work; maybe here that’s located between the pages of this book.

CSP: And is it also a way to mirror your own process of creation — where the book remains the initial vehicle and source of your work, here to return again as a form, as in the current book …?

AL: … yes, at the end of our conversation we return to the book, but also to the beginning: an observation of the act of looking and of our own position towards that at which we look.
