Allan Kaprow. Posters, 2014

27,7 x 43 cm – 91 pages – sofcover
Text by Steve Roden & Oscar Tuazon
Price: 36 euros

Allan Kaprow (1927–2006) is considered to be the founding father of the Happening, of Environments and Activities: terms that he continued to redefine throughout his career.

With a wide selection of images, this publication, designed by Coline Sunier and Charles Mazé, 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.

Most of these posters were designed by Allan Kaprow and are characterized by their aesthetic quality, the earliest ones in particular a combination of hand-lettered text and drawings and the later ones of photographs and typographic text in a minimalist style.

More than merely advertising Happenings or Activities, these posters act as scores/tools for the participants to the Happenings and as everyday objects that blur the boundaries between art and life.

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.”

Essays: ” Do Androids dream about Kindles” by Vincent Pecoil, “American/English” by Yann Sérandour

Bibliographical notes: Francine Delaigle

Design: Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié

This book is not a catalogue raisonné, it instead takes a look at the library of an amateur, an excuse to apprehend this aspect of Richard Prince’s work which encompasses books and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the ” ghost” of the missing books.

Richard Prince is an avid collector of books, an obsessive one. This fervor is visible in The Good Life of American/ English, where he photographs covers of books from his collection, reducing the book to an image, a simple surface.

1 volume – 208 pages- illust in colour -16 x 11,5 cm

Hors d’oeuvres, 2014 

Scrennprints by Sarah Shebaro, Brooklyn Binding by Clara Gevaert, Brussels.

55,9 x 50,9 cm – 8 pages.

Edition of 25 copies numbered and signed by the artist + 7 A.P + 4 H.C

Published by christophe daviet-thery, Paris.

Price upon request.

Matthew Brannon’s images are purposefully seductive and immediately identifiable to the point of assimilating themselves to archetypes.
Indeed, what better way to represent a platter of crayfish, an ice-bowl or an Oscar ? Matthew Brannon ‘s aesthetic is influenced by the graphic
arts, the advertising world; an aesthetic infused by the outdated elegance of the 1950’s. His images work like ” visual signs” that condition our very reading of them.
Yet, beyond these surface images a darker world is hidden away, revealed here by a letter from a producer to an author, creating a tension between what is to
be seenand what is to be read.
I there a better parable of our contemporary society than Hollywood, which Matthew Brannon invites us to observe through a keyhole ?
Les images de Matthew Brannon sont volontairement séduisantes et immédiatement identifiables jusqu’à  s’assimiler à des archétypes. En effet, quelle autre représentation d’un plat de langoustes, d’une coupe à glace ou encore d’un Oscar pourrait-on avoir ?
Matthew Brannon emprunte son esthétique aux arts graphiques, à l’univers publicitaire; esthétique teintée de lélégance surannée des années 50.
Et pourtant derrière ces images de surface, se cache un univers plus obscur, ici dévoilé sous la forme d’une lettre d’un producteur à un auteur, créant une tension entre ce qui est donné à voir et ce qui est à lire.
Quelle meilleure parabole de la société contemporaine qu’Hollywood que Matthew Brannon nous invite ici à observer à travers un trou de serrure ?

Posters by Erwin Wurm, Leonor Antunes…….

March 9, 2013
In the 1970s Remy Charlip (dancer, choreographer, author of childrens’ books…..) countered Munari’s poster by an armchair dance which he choreographed entitled “Reading Dance”, providing today the title of this exhibition. In the spirit which inspired Charlip to counter Munari, the contemporary artists Leonor Antunes, Pablo Bronstein, Koenrad Dedobbeleer, Yann Sérandour, and Erwin Wurm were invited to react once again to Munari’s poster and imagery, echoing in their work themes of reading, architecture, and performance.
Leonor Antunes proposes eight dance “grids” as environment, creating an optical and physical experience from photograms of industrial metallic railings applied directly to photographic paper (“grid dancing”, 8 posters – 50 x 50 cm – offset – 250 copies – Price: 100 euros)


Koenraad Dedobbeleer proposes a two-sided poster; a self portrait of the artist in his studio and apartment ( “Seeking Comfort in an Uncomfortable World”, 2 posters  both sides – 90 x 65 cm – offset – 250 copies – Price: 50 euros)
 Johannes Wohnseifer echoes the layout of Munari’s poster with 14 photographs of an abandoned and damaged skate board ( “Reconstruction of a Toenage Sculpture”, poster – 50 x 77,5 cm – offset – 250 copies – Price: 10 euros)
Erwin Wurm offers a drawing with its accompanying legend instructing one to realize a “One minute sculpture”, along with the possibility of using the poster by transforming it into a jacket covering the monograph ” The artist who Swallowed” ed Cantz (“Take your Most Loved Philosophers” – poster – 11 x 70 cm – offset – 250 copies – Price: 10 euros)

Four proposals for changing bulletin 72 (1) (2) (3) (4), 2011

Edition of 25 signed and numbered copies

4 offsets prints, 21 x 29,7 cm.

Price upon request.

Michael Riedel extrated the word ” bulletin 72″ from the bulletin 72 (Lawrence Weiner – Art & Priject Bulletin – december 73).
Cutting it out of a piece of black  fabric and turning the resulting banner on each of its sides, four new shapes were created.
Four proposals for changing bulletin 72 foregrounds process by drawing distinctions and opening up an infinite number of abstract forms, which allows the word ” bulletin 72″ to be read as an ever changing moment. Though these methods, Michael Riedel effects a gradual degradation of form 
and disintegration of language.

Ommage à la recherche du temps perdu, du côté de chez Swann.

“Erasing the work of Marcel Proust In search of lost time, according to a strict protocol, is my artistic approach.To the rythm of a daily page, a necessary constraint, I rease with an ink rubber, in the white collection of Gallimard, a series of the seven volumes of this novel.It is a long-term work, a slow, meticulous and methodical progress for which it is possible to determine the date of archievement accurately. To this obsessive minimal gesture, simple act of presence, is added the necessity to reedit progressively the proustien work in its blurred version, according to the division into chapters wanted by the author. Moreover, the printing of the ruined text-scattered letters-, solitary syllabes, fragments entirely legibile words, snatches of sentences and even scraps of thoughts-from the semi random result of a free mixture of spontaneous choices”

books on books by Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié, 2011

This book project ensued from discussions between Christoph Schifferli,Christophe Daviet-Thery and Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié.

In september 2009, Christophe Daviet-Thery invited the swiss collector Christoph Schifferli to curate an exhibition at his gallery. The show was called “Books on Books” and presented 26 artists’ books that are, in some way or another, about books or their representation.

The same year, in december 2009, Christophe Daviet-Thery asked to Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié to take care of the catalog even if this book works independently from the exhibition. He invited Jonathan Monk and Yann Sérandour to have a conversation about 12 books: Bruce Nauman, Burning Small Fires, 1968 – Richard Prince, American English, London: Sadie Coles HQ and Cologne: Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 2003 – Wade Guyton, Zeichnungen für ein grosse Bild, Cologne: Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 2010 – Jonathan Monk, Cover Version, London: Book Works, 2004 – Mike Kelley, Reconstructed History, New York: Thea Weistreich and Cologne: Gisela Capitain, 1990 – Allen Ruppersberg, The New Five-Foot Shelf of Books, Brussels: Editions Micheline Szwajcer & Michèle Didier and Ljubljana: International Centre of Graphic Arts, 2003 – Claude Closky, Vacances à Arcachon, Paris: Editions Galerie Jennifer Flay, 2000 – Alejandro Cesarco, Dedications, New York: A.R.T Press, 2003 – Martin Kippenberger, The Happy End of Franz Kafka’s Amerika.
