Oriol Vilanova, Without Distinction, &: nathalie et christophe daviet-thery éditions, 2016

In his practice, Oriol Vilanova investigates the characteristics of men and cultures. This investigation is also key in an extensive collection of postcards he has been collecting for years on flea markets and that he regularly uses as a starting point of his works. Chance, repetition and exaggeration often return in his minimal installations, performances and texts.
In M Vilanova focuses on the act of exhibiting. He explores how museums show artifacts in images on postcards or through exhibition devices such as showcases and plinths. What stories do they tell? And does this also create at the same time a certain distance towards an audience?

“Museums generally use display cases as a neutral presentation format that is pushed into the background, so that full justice is done to the objects they contain. In the pictures, they are shown for what they are, an arrangement of display cases from different museums and institutions from Belgium.” (Oriol Vilanova)

Starting from the art collection of the museum M in Leuven, Vilanova reflects on the art of exhibiting and explores display modes from showcases to postcards. Published following the exhibition “At first sight” at M – Museum Leuven, from March 18 to June 5, 2016. Edited by Alice Dusapin.

Allan Kaprow, Posters, &: nathalie et christophe daviet-thery éditions, 2014

This publication documents Kaprow’s posters, a lesser-known side of his work, produced between 1953 for his first show at the Hansa Gallery, New York and 1996 at Kunsthalle Palazzo, Liestal.
Allan Kaprow (1927–2006) was an American artist who is perhaps best known for his work 18 Happenings in 6 Parts that took place at the Reuben Gallery in New York in 1959. In 1958 he wrote an essay, “The Legacy of Jackson Pollock,” that became an essential text for understanding the development of his work and indeed the entire Sixties performance art scene: “Pollock, as I see him, left us at the point where we must become preoccupied with and even dazzled by the space and objects of our everyday life, either our bodies, clothes, rooms, or, if need be, the vastness of Forty-second Street. Not satisfied with the suggestion through paint of our other senses, we shall utilize the specific substances of sight, sound, movements, people, odors, touch.”
With texts by Steve Roden & Oscar Tuazon.
