Tags: Space poetry
The painting is folded out from the wall; the wall is folded out into the space. The conception of another space inside the space, which is a part of the art but also a part of the house, a part of the street, a part of life. The potential space, which is adumbrated in the shifting between light and dark in the painting’s and the wall’s surfaces and the time that it takes the senses and the body to understand.
The space that is folded around both viewer and work, in a game of possibilities that is not redeemed until the viewer steps into the space. The work becomes gestated upon the viewer’s entry and the potential is designated within the contours of a game, where the reciprocal work-, viewer- and artist- relationships manifest themselves as tangible interchanges, transpiring right on the spot.

The Big Convoy. Dirk Zoete. Posture Editions.
Posture Editions collects an extensive cycle of works by Dirk Zoete (Roeselare, 1969): black and white photos of scene images modified with pencil and Photoshop. These images literally serve as the backdrop for a succession of sketched transformations. In this way they seem to instigate a peculiar stop-motion movie. The fragmented way of working shows the design and the implementation of a drawing over time.
Are these images a sketchy scenario for an animated film or they are an exercise in scenography? Are these still considered photos or drawings? Subjects depicted are quite diverse: objects and tools, rough architectural constructions in impossible landscapes, half-realised shadowy characters, but also contrasts such as light and dark (black and white), or other drawn elements such as lines, shadows and spots…
The book aims to present this series as a stunning world of dream images that entail a story – and therefore as a whole can best be described as a graphic novel.
The black and white reproductions and the theatrical nature of the work also opens a hall of mirrors to historical artistic references: the scenery images from Parade by Picasso, the Triadisches Ballett by Schlemmer, the supremacy of Malevich, but also rarely-screened Westerns or novels like The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky.
Architecture critic Koen Van Synghel provides the introduction to this artist’s publication.

Open Editions (London) and Hordaland Art Centre (Bergen) are pleased to announce the publication of the third book in the Occasional Table Critical Series. ‘Self-Organised’, edited by Stine Hebert and Anne Szefer Karlsen, follows the critically acclaimed ‘Curating Subjects’ and ‘Curating and the Educational Turn’.
The current economic situation and society’s low confidence in its institutions demands that artists become more imaginative in their self-organisation. If labels such as ‘alternative’, ‘non-profit’ and ‘artist-run’ dominated the self-organised art scene of the late nineties, the separatist position implied by the use of these terms has been moderated during the intervening years. This new anthology of accounts from the frontline includes contributions by artist practitioners as well as their institutional counterparts that provide a fascinating account of the art world as a matrix of positions where the balance of power and productivity constantly shifts. Artists, curators and critics discuss empirical and theoretical approaches from Europe, Africa and South and North America on how self-organisation today oscillates between the self and the group, self-imposed bureaucratisation and flexibility, aestheticisation and activism.
“LA SOURCE DE L’INCENDIE”
Ambitions, motivations and frustrations - a book launch performance
Presentation of Bernd Kleinheisterkamps recent publication “Pirenópolis” – a surralistic city portrait.
“Pirenópolis is small town in the inland of Brazil. During the week Pirenópolis is a quiet, unhasty place. Most inhabitants still live on farming. Its historical center, the rural atmosphere and the countryside with a number of beautiful waterfalls around, attract people from all over, mainly from the nearby capital Brasilia. Especially on weekends and holidays. Why there is still such a remarkable number of Volkswagen Beetle all around, I don’t know exactly.”
“No, it’s not about cars, its about a city, I simply put a Beetle on your blind spot”
Pirenópolis: (greek) polis=town and pirinas = la source de l’incedie/du feu
Bernd Kleinheisterkamps (*1973) lives since 2007 in Brussels

Wild Things Are Going To Happen. Henrik Schrat. Eastside Projects.
Henrik Schrat’s Wild Things Are Going To Happen captures a hallucinatory journey in the life of Dan Graham, the iconic artist of ‘Rock my Religion’ fame.
Exploring the Digbeth and Eastside areas of Birmingham, Dan is joined by Eastside Projects Directors Gavin Wade and Celine Condorelli, curator Maurizio Bortolotti, and architect Joe Hollyoak.
The group fall through the looking glass and are confronted by the polymorpheus utopia and dystopia of present time, the historical, and the ‘just passed’. They travel from Birmingham’s Bull Ring to Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion via Dan’s sculptures and are transformed and transported to a submerged world, where Jaques Lacan sells the group tickets to theHall of Mirrors in Versailles!
Explore the complex web of theories, FACTS AND FICTIONS between Dan Flavin, the 19th Century American Hudson River School of Painting, science fiction and Cedric Price. And just who is Sverre Fehn?
Henrik Schrat’s graphic novel is a violent splash into the inner workings of one of the most influential artists on the planet.
