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.

Pierre Leguillon – Le Tapis (Fair Use). WIELS, Roma Publications

Posted in art, Artist Book on February 16th, 2015
Tags: , ,

Le_tapis_Pierre_Leguillon01Le_tapis_Pierre_Leguillon02Le_tapis_Pierre_Leguillon03Distributed on the occasion of the exhibition ‘The Museum of Mistakes: Contemporary Art and Class Struggle’, conceived by Pierre Leguillon and bringing together works he has created over the last fifteen years from reproduced images, this folding brochure/poster continues in this spirit by mimicking the economy of means and autonomy of images Leguillon deploys in his work. It proposes an exhibition model that attempts to foil or declassify the hierarchies of art, as each work is informed by a principle of movement, or even reversibility, and reflects a perpetual process of emitting and receiving information, spurring us to rethink the conditions of the reception of art.

Rossella-Biscotti-02 Rossella-Biscotti-03 Rossella-Biscotti-04 Rossella-Biscotti-05

For her first solo exhibition in Belgium, acclaimed Italian artist Rossella Biscotti draws a trajectory across spaces that evoke important historical processes and links them to the sciences of the mind. This book, published in conjunction with the exhibition, follows this example by interweaving narratives in relation to the concrete and discrete architecture of memory, dreams, and ideas. While revisiting sites of punishment, the gathering of works embodies the ability of the human mind to resist oppression, tracing individual destinies or collective endeavours through a combination of materials, language, and scientific techniques. With a text by Adam Kleinman. Design: Louis Lüthi.

A not B, Uta Eisenreich

Book with recent photographic work by Uta Eisenreich focussing on the shortcomings of our cognitive tool-kit. A NOT B walks us along the fine line between common sense and uncommon nonsense in a realm reminiscent of pre-school books, assessment tests and optical illusions.
