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.

With a focus on photographs, books and other printed media as the central matrix for his work along with an acknowledged pre-occupation with Kafka’s novel , The Castle (1926), for this new project.John Stezaker has used a book by Karel Plicka titled Prague in Photographs, specially the edition printed in 1961. Using a minimalist approach to alteration while emphazing the sensation of mystery and vertigo, John Stezaker has turned this book inside out.He has shifted the orientation of viewing the original book.In addition to taking the same single page in each book of the edition and altering it though subtie collage.Though this quiet intervention, Stezaker is questioning the orientation and documentation of all the images in Plicka’s book which in turn afters the viewer’s own relationship with the visual narrative of old photographs. The book’s title The Bridge, is also a metaphor of what collage itself is, namely a way of linking two separate images.
