BOOK LAUNCH

SCREEN

Arthur Fouray

Tombolo Presses

ARTIST TALK
Arthur Fouray in conversation with Rachel Walker
7.30 pm

We are happy to invite you to the launch of Tombolo Presses new publication, an artist book by Arthur Fouray. Its title, “Screen”, embodies his artistic process which spreads here across two main formats : painting/serigraphy on cushions and the artist book. The publication sets a comprehensive entry point into a research Arthur Fouray began in 2015 with his solo show “Spectre” at Espace Quark, Geneva. Through art and decoration history, he questions the shift between painting before the industrial revolution and the cinematographic experience. He proposes to the spectator an art experience which skips interaction by teasing the unsaid.

The launch of the book is accompanied by a talk between Rachel Walker and Arthur Fouray. A bookshelf will display books published by Tombolo Presses in recent years.

Arthur Fouray is a French artist born in 1990. His practice analyses through paintings the exhibition format. He is also curator at DOC Paris, France. In 2015, he co-founded the artist-run-space Silicon Malley in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The book documents the design work of author’s grandmother Kirsti Metusala at the Tallinn Experimental Plant Estoplast where she worked as a designer for 28 years (1964–1992). Estoplast was a factory mainly producing plastic lamps which were highly popular during the Soviet era and even nowadays almost every Estonian family has a lamp or two in their home or country house.

The book consists of a collection of photographs from the archive of Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design showing a selection of lamps designed by Kirsti Metusala. It is accompanied by an interview with her by Ott Metusala which is loosely based on comments of different lamp designs, and sheds light on the specifics of working as a designer in Soviet Estonia. The book also includes a short essay by Kai Lobjakas (director of Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design) discussing Soviet-Estonian design in a broader context.

Alexander Peli, Pardon Refused, p.71

POP-UP Press @ Motto Berlin. 03.05.2017
from 6pm

Pardon Refused by Alexander Peli, Popup Press 2017
82 pages, A4, Softcover

Alexander Peli is a Canadian photographer who enjoys a raw atmosphere. The time he spent living in the Kreuzberg neighbourhood of West Berlin had a significant impact on his work and he subsequently travelled throughout Europe seeking misconduct of all kinds.
His photographs often follow a sinful narrative; one of lust, gluttony, sexuality, crime and abuse. Pardon Refused acts as a photo diary and uses the streets as a palette, capturing young artists engaged in destructive action as well as candidly documenting strange yet familiar environments. Alexander and the creatives featured in the pages of Pardon Refused don’t apologize for their behaviour and seek no redemption.
All photographs shot exclusively on 35mm film using 5 different cameras, Pardon Refused contains 66 frames spanning over 7 countries.

Erik Thys, Portraits

“The reputation of Erik Thys (b. 1961) rests on his work as a psychiatrist, not as an artist. Thys lives in Brussels where he composes music, draws, and practices in two psychiatric hospitals. On the occasion of this book, Thys invited a colleague, the British psychoanalyst Darian Leader, to reflect on his infatuation with automobiles. The drawings in this book are a small, almost pitiful, portion of the number Erik Thys provided. They came to us on all types of office paper, prescription pads, and whatever else was at hand.”
