Antwerp Art

Books and food

First of all we hope everyone is healthy, well and safe at home.

For this newsletter we wanted to put the focus on what we miss the most these days: the physical experience of art. That’s why we’ll highlight some incredible publications, artists books, a magazine containing 72 questions, and even some editions which can be purchased and brought to you.

You can also order a cookbook with amazing drawings and an a damn good lentil soup by Dorothy Iannone or support the Antwerp food banks by buying art at The Wunderwall. A special thanks to the artists and organisations for making this possible!

Take care.

Don’t miss Frans Masereel Centrum’s Open Call to critics, writers, curators and academics.


Six Questions

"When talking to artists, there were always certain questions that interested us in particular. We wanted to know about their work, their working methods, their process of creation and where they get their inspiration from."

In 2016 Tique collected these questions to create a recurring feature called Six Questions. Every week they published an interview based on these questions on the website of Tique. Three years and over 160 interviews later, the format is still going strong; every week we get to know an artist personally through words and images.

Tique | publication on contemporary art
Six Questions: with Jonas Lund, Marge Monko, Letha Wilson, Félicia Atkinson, Ali Zanjani, Paulien Oltheten, Marc Nagtzaam, Yuki Okumura, Katja Mater, Eric Giraudet de Boudemange, Paul Kooiker and Lito Kattou.

TRIGGER MAGAZINE: The first issue on ‘Impact’ is made in close collaboration with The Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KABK), The Hague, The Netherlands, and guest editor Donald Weber, teacher and researcher at KABK. It deals with photography's 'impact', in different social and political contexts, in our current time joint and in the past. Can we still assume photography’s (age-old) impact in an image-saturated world, where fake news, the questioning of representative democracy and the return of colonial pasts are engaging different political cultures, publics, action and pression groups? How can photography function as a tool for environmental change? What is the role of photographs in political debates?

An Exhibition—Another Exhibition

"Dynamically collaging across mediums—from paint to bronze, papier-mâché to concrete—Valérie Mannaerts playfully arranges sculptural elements to create spatial installations, scenographies without stages. As scales oscillate and materials remain staunchly mercurial, the works exist in a space of deliberate ambiguity, sitting on the threshold between object and image. For the two exhibitions, Mannaerts manipulated the gallery spaces through the idiosyncratic positioning of diverse spatial objects, creating fields of tension and obscurity, surreal situations that asked viewers to decode the objects staring back at them."

De uitvinding van de wereld

In De uitvinding van de wereld – een verslag van ervaringen en bedenkingen – geeft Marc Schepers zijn werkvisie over samenleving, cultuur en kunst en hoe hij die beeldend omzet.

De relatie tussen samenleving en kunst en het werken binnen een sociaal referentiekader worden besproken. In hoofdstukken als waarneming en ervaring – montage en fotomontage – Benjamin en het auratische – de auteur als producent gaat Marc Schepers de dialoog aan met zijn beeldend werk.

Dit boek ontleent zijn titel aan een installatie van Schepers uit 1984 waarnaar hij regelmatig teruggrijpt. In een rijk geïllustreerde tekst die het midden houdt tussen biografie, manifest, bronnenonderzoek en gedeconstrueerde catalogus loodst de auteur je mee doorheen een werkproces dat dertig jaar geëngageerd kunstenaarschap omspant.

Presented to you from Ruimte Morguen.

Stargate 63

Pink House Press #0 “Stargate 63”, Edition of 100, Editors: Gijs Waterschoot/Ersi Varveri

"The last magazine released in the Pink House was dedicated to the moving out of the house at Italiëlei 63, 2000 Antwerp. As the moving out is going to be the end of an era but also to mark a new beginning for us, we see this as point 0. Like that we see this php edition as a portal that is able to take us into a new adventure!

We asked artists and people from our network to imagine and suggest with their contribution where could this portal take us, or takes you, or what happens if someone goes through it! The magazine may become a spaceship that goes in and out these different places!"

This first monograph on conceptual artist Stefaan Dheedene (°1975, Belgium) brings an overview of 20 years of artistic practice. The book can be considered as an instrument or handbook, that was created in order to conceive a mental and fysical space in which the oeuvre can be compressed and interrelationships can be exposed. This monograph was structured by Dheedene himself, by the use of eight named lists. This principle makes the underlying artistic research visible and creates the possibility of a multiple approach, without falling into corrections and forced interpretations and contextualization.

Ballroom's Supportive Project:

"Everybody in the arts sector has been heavily affected by this situation, but none more than artists. Their status is often unclear and as a result they usually can’t count on government support measures. Their side jobs – often in the catering industry or art supply shops – have suddenly dried up as well. However, the costs these artists have for their practice, studio and canceled exhibitions, continue to add up."

For these reasons, the Ballroom Project still wants to take action and release a digital version of their 2020 edition at their website.

From Sunday 19 April at 14h until Friday 19 June, Ballroom Project offers a curated online sales platform of unique artworks and editions between €75 and €2,500. The artworks in this online catalogue have been selected by participating galleries and artists invited by the organisers of Ballroom.

In this way, the galleries first and foremost want to support artists. For every artwork sold through this platform, Ballroom guarantees that 70% of sales go directly to the artist. The remaining 30% is used to cover transportation, administration and other organisation costs. All prices are VAT inclusive and cover shipping for sales within Belgium. For international sales Ballroom charge a small shipping fee.

Ballroom Project is founded by Base Alpha Gallery & DMW Gallery.

A Walk in High Resolution, by David Bergé
"Since 2008, artist David Bergé has been making “Walk Pieces”, during which he guides participants in silence along a precise trajectory and within a precise timeframe through textures and infrastructures that comprise the city. Participating in a “Walk Piece” and/or your personal experience of reading this book are the only valid materialisation of David Bergé’s ephemeral works."

Integration, by Zoran Todorović
"An artist book by Zoran Todorović that testifies artist’s process of making this illegal people project, from the refugee toilet to the final packing of the finished product and its consumption."

Aphasia, by Jelena Jureša
"As a medical term, aphasia refers to the inability to speak or to find the right words. Starting from the themes tackled in the film, this book focuses on the collective silence surrounding crime and the compartmentalisation of historical events, and it traces the line between Belgian colonialism, Austrian anti-Semitism and the wars in Yugoslavia."

Here and There, by Božena Končić Badurina and Duga Mavrinac (image)
"This picture book is an outcome of anthropological research on migrant domestic and care workers with artistic work."

Borders of Nothingness

"In the infinite flow of everything, people come and go in our lives. While the presence of some can be so subtle that we hardly register when it begins or ends, with others it's far clearer: they enter, or leave, with a bang.
In Border of Nothingness, Dutch photographer Margaret Lansink (b. 1961) dwells in the transitional ambiguity of her adult daughter's decision to suspend contact with her, photographing landscapes and nude women whose disappearing presence raises the same haunted question: is this the moment you were gone?
As times passed, Lansink and her daughter reconnected to investigate whether their break could be mended. Lansink then began to revisit and reinterpret Borders of Nothingness in a physical practice that mirrored their emotional efforts of healing. Working from the Japanese practice of repairing ceramics with gold leaf, she combined her images, severs them, and mends their breaks with gold leaf to put hope into the possibility of a bond that is stronger and more beautiful because it had once been broken."
Katherine Oktober Matthews

The book is available in a regular edition (an edition of 300) for €70, or in a special edition in a box with an original collage with gold leaf (an edition of 30) for €270.

Luc Dondeyne's Third Eye

"The intuition, imagination and inner wisdom with which the third eye or the sixth chakra fills us, may also open the gate to the collective memory, on which not only Dondeyne relies but also the spectator who looks at the artist’s works. Frequently, Dondeyne refers in his titles and images consciously or subconsciously to the history of art and culture. He invites us to open our own third eye and to join him to tap into his huge source of knowledge and associations that allows him to connect that which he sees through the third eye with that which he depicts thereof on the canvas or on paper, and with the spectator who contemplates the final result."
Diana Wind, excerpt from Third Eye

Never look back again

"Video and photo artist Nassermann occupies himself with questions relating to art history, anthropotechnics, and selfrepresentation in video art. He examines the everyday behaviors of individuals as well as collective phenomena with respect to mass-media phenomena. This leads him to combine digital and analogue technology in his works, in which the boundaries between past, present, and future seem to blur. Nassermann, who has been tremendously influenced by his encounter with Peter Sloterdijk, sees his art as a duty and a mission to touch people deep in their souls and minds. In his first monograph, Nassermann now provides an overview of his work until today and shows how deeply the individual creative areas are connected."

Image: Cox, silkscreen by Koen van den Broek. 52.5 x 64.5 cm, 2016, edition of 50 copies, in a linen case, numbered and signed in pencil


Published on the occasion of the exhibition In dialogue with Jan Cox, a duo exhibition in which Koen van den Broek confronted his work with that of one of his examples, Jan Cox.

"The screenprint Cox, refers to a canvas from the Iliad series by Jan Cox from 1975. In The cleaners of the battlefield, Jan Cox shows two completely black vultures that tear apart a carcass, against a pink-grey background. The bright yellow eyes of the scavengers stand out against the burgundy and torn carcass. Cox’s use of color is gray and gloomy and contributes to the threat emanating from the scene. Koen van den Broek has cut the context out of Cox’s canvas and uses bright, fresh colors. Of the unfair battle between the vultures and the carcass, only the tension remains between the interrelated blue color planes and the related red color planes in which the blue ones are dominant. The echoes of the vultures and Cox’s carcass resound in van den Broek’s silkscreen."
