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
