Toine Horvers

“Writing lecture”,2010

7 text sheets in a folder – 21 x 29,7 cm.

Edition of 75 copies signed.

Price: 35 euros

Published by &: Christophe & Nathalie Daviet-Thery,2010,Paris.

The text for this edition was performed live by the artist on the 16th of september 2010 at Christophe Daviet-Thery’s gallery and bookshop in Paris.

Christophe Daviet-Thery invited Toine Horvers to come up with a proposal for a publication related to his hand-writting in drawings and books.He decided that only a hand-wrtiiten could be conceptually interesting for reproduction and publication. In the text he gives a detalled description of all sort of procedural and visual aspects of hand-writting with a fountain pen on A4 paper. He sits on a small table and writes the memorised text on A4 sheets,while at the same time pronouncing the words in a very slow long drawn way.For the situation in the gallery he asked a French person to sit opposite him and pronounces the French translation,spoken in a normal way,overlapping with his own voice.The written sheets have been scanned and reproduced and presented in a folder.

Les étoiles s’en balançent/Jockum Nordström

10.02.2011 – 24.04.2011

Expo art contemporain. Polyvalent, Jockum Nordström s’exprime à travers le dessin, le collage et la sculpture en utilisant des matériaux « pauvres » comme le papier et le carton, peu sollicités par les artistes de sa génération. Il a su se les approprier pour créer un œuvre contemporain et compte aujourd’hui parmi les Suédois les plus reconnus dans le monde de l’art international. «Il nous offre des contes pour adultes, oniriques, imaginatifs, sautant entre des mondes et des époques différents –toujours avec une présence érotique forte », explique Lars Nittve, ancien directeur du Moderna Museet.
En collaboration avec Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm. En partenariat avec le magazine
