Tarik Hayward, Indian Inkjet, Oraibi, Mcb-a, 2018

Réalisé à l’occasion de l’exposition Neutral Density de Tarik Hayward au Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne en 2017, Indian Inkjet est le résultat d'une année de production d'un livre - depuis sa conception jusqu'à son impression - par l'artiste lui-même. Chaque exemplaire est un objet unique réalisé dans une imprimerie autonome mise en place dans l’atelier. Grâce à des logiciels pirate, l’artiste a détourné des imprimantes de leur obsolescence programmée, les alimentant par des bidons d’encre à l’aide de tuyaux.

Né à Ibiza, Tarik Hayward vit à la Vallée de Joux. Il conçoit son travail comme: « une série d’expériences techniques réalisées dans l’urgence d’un besoin non défini ».

--

Produced for the Neutral Density art show at the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne in 2017, Indian Inkjet is the result of the one-year process to produce a book - from its conception to its printing - by the artist himself. Every copy is a unique item made in an autonomous printing house set up in the workshop. Thanks to hacked software, the artist hijacked printers from their planned obsolescence, feeding them with tubes dipped in cans of ink. 

Born in Ibiza, Tarik Hayward lives in la Vallée de Joux. He conceives his work as « a series of technical experiments made in the urgency of an undefined need ».

Tobias Kaspar (ed.), REHAB, 2015

In recent years the role of the art school has moved to a position of prominence, pushed there by the encroachments of an aggressive marketplace and the professionalization of every aspect of the artworld, from the dominance of gallery and museum brands, to the cultural tourism of art fairs and biennials, to today’s art itself now so often created precisely for the scale, spectacle, and capitalization of these events. To whom should the academy be responsible ?... Should the art school be a research center that enlightens conceptual practices while de-emphasizing skills, or a course of study in entrepreneurship, presentation, strategic thinking, and other matters to prepare young artists for the ruthlessness of the market ? Or is art school in the 21st century simply the physical surrogate of (...)

In response to HEAD – Genève’s invitation to hold a class at its MFA, Tobias Kaspar initiated the program RME (Roommate Education) which dealt with issues of how to question work conventions and one’s own enforcement of these. RME took place between 2013 and 2015 as part of the Work.Master program at HEAD – Genève.
RME consisted consisted amongst other of visits to various places within Geneva, Switzerland : visits to museums, cafes, restaurants, hotels, brothels, cinemas and other institutions. Most of the time the visits were accompanied by an instructor or in-house professional giving a tour or introduction: In and out: From one institution to the other...

This book has been conceived as an extension of RME and its blog by : Bianca Benenti, Denise Bertschi, Isaac Contreras, Ashley Cook, Diego De Atucha, Ravi Govender, Paul Guian, Gitte Hendrikx, Sarah Margnetti, Irene Muñoz, Philip Pilekjær, Juliette Russbach, Seyoung Yoon, and is an indirect result of Tobias Kaspar’s program RME (Roommate Education) ran from 2013 to 2015 at the Work.Master at HEAD – Genève.
