Hundred Zundert

Nel Aerts spent a three-month residency at the Vincent Van GoghHuis in Zundert, the village where Van Gogh grew up. Instead of trying to toe the artist’s footsteps, she positioned herself in the iconic interior of the sexton’s house, creating a frame for an extended series of self portraits. Posture Editions selected one hundred of these ballpoint pen drawings and rendered them full-sized in the publication Hundred Zundert.

Nel Aerts presented a first set of these drawings during her exhibition ‘Billenkoek’ at KIOSK.

The book was published by Posture Editions, with the support of Lord Nelson, KIOSK & Vincent van GoghHuis Zundert. The book launch took place at KIOSK, Sunday, April 17th, 2016.

Three Exchanges

In three recent video installations - and in the three chapters of this book -, Zachary Formwalt focuses on the architecture of OMA's new Shenzhen Stock Exchange and the Amsterdam stock and commodities exchange by H.P. Berlage. Although our economy is dictated by financial transactions, the activity of trading itself has become increasingly remote, without actual human encounter. The architecture of the two buildings serves as a starting point for a investigation into the limitations of photography to represent global capital and into the interrelationships between financial capitalism and image-making.

The book was made on the occasion of Formwalt’s 2014 and 2015 solo shows at KIOSK, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (SMBA) and Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCAB) Belgrado, respectively. Both exhibitions revolved around the same theme and works: our contemporary global economy, as analyzed by Formwalt in three video installations in which he uses the stock exchange building as a metaphor for the impossibility of visualizing the continuously circulating flows of capital in the contemporary financial world.

Cinéma chez les balantes

The publication appears on the occasion of Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc's and Eric Baudelaire's ‘L'œil se noie’ exhibition at KIOSK (05.04.2014 – 15.06.2014).

'Cinéma chez les balantes' ('Filming with The Balanta People') includes a translated reissue of a number of pieces written by Suzanne Lipinska for Africasia magazine in June-July 1970, while she accompanied the liberation army of Guinea-Bissau and director Sarah Maldoror who was then working on 'Guns for Banta'.

Introduction by Abonnenc:
"Following his two-week trip in the jungle of Guinea-Bissau,
Suzanne Lipinska joins the director Sarah Maldoror to get
on the island of Diabada. It is on this small piece of the Republic
of Guinea that Sarah Maldoror decided to shoot his new film
Guns for Banta.
The film, produced by the Democratic and Popular Republic
of Algeria, and commissioned by the P.A.I.G.C., stages the first
moments of opposition against the Portuguese colonialism.
It tells the political awakening of a peasant, whose martyr brings
an entire population to rise.
Suzanne Lipinska’s precious testimony allows us to perceive
the difficulty of involving the people in the production of a militant
cinema, and by extension into a revolutionary process."

Furniture

The publication appears on the occasion of Claudia Wieser’s exhibition 'Furniture' at KIOSK (06.10.2012 – 18.11.2012).

The title refers directly at issues that lie at the very heart of Wieser’s work: what is the status of sculptures that were designed as objects? The artist’s body of work is built around this question and explores the boundaries between autonomous and applied art. The exhibition brought together an ensemble of drawings, ceramic and wooden sculptures, and a spatial collage, instigating a dialogue between them and explicitly relating them to the architectural context of the exhibition space.

The Allegorical Function Of Dirt: A Discussion With Aki Tsuyuko's Ongakushitsu

The publication appears on the occasion of Zin Taylor’s exhibition ‘Growth’ at KIOSK (08.10.2011 – 27.11.2011).

“In The Allegorical Function of Dirt: a discussion with Aki Tsyuko’s Ongakushitsu I approached the full-length of Tsuyuko’s album as a base to inform the production of a video featuring twelve landscapes that I had constructed from dirt. My forming of dirt is a visual response to what I imagined to be Tsuyuko’s forming of music into a narrative voice. I read Aki Tsuyuko’s use of the organs and keyboards to compose music as mediators that would record her constructions from the formless material of sound. The completed video containing the discussion between dirt and music was sent to Tsuyuko and a booklet documenting our correspondence accompanies the work. Contacting Tsuyuko was necessary to communicate that what I had read into her album’s intent was an additional narrative proposed as an alternative reading. By responding to Aki Tsuyuko’s album I was curious if I could add to its history in any way or if that action would generate a network of growth – a situation where communication would expand the territory an idea occupied.”

Volume I of an open-ended dialogue. Translations by Shinobu Akimoto. (c) Zin Taylor, 2005.

Ashes and Broken Brickwork of a Logical Theory

The publication appears on the occasion of Susanne Kriemann’s exhibition ‘Ashes and Broken Brickwork of a Logical Theory’ at KIOSK (19.02.2010 - 28.03.2010).

The book can be read as an inventory of the trajectory that Susanne Kriemann pursued in relation to archaeology, to the artefact, to the image of the individual at work and the idea of the desert as a symbol of the modern desire to create an empty slate, a tabula rasa. Material from Agatha Christie s photographic archives is related to photographs that Kriemann produced of the Syrian desert and archaeological sites in Mesopotamia. This associative working method allows the artist to dig towards the past and to disassociate the idea of modernity from all ideological connotations, and in this way analyze the writing of recent history as a formal system of organization.

Yavreeges Hokeet Seerem

The publication appears on the occasion of Mekhitar Garabedian’s exhibition ‘Young Man Blues’ at KIOSK (20.02.2010 – 28.03.2010).

The publication illuminates the everyday space that surrounds Mekhitar Garabedian, by way of photographs and philosophical quotations, in a combination of image and imagination, of what a house or a home might represent. The whole is created from a self-assured selection from Garabedian’s image archives, conveying a message that can be poignantly summarized in the leading quotation from Boris Mikhailov. It deals with the standpoint that a photographer should take and the notion that the power of recording a simple, but honest image is stronger than hunting after the ultimate gesture.
