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.

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.

Howdy Bamington,2011

Edition of 30 copies + 12 E.A + 4 H.C

Price upon request.

Published by &: Christophe & Nathalie Daviet-Thery,2011,Paris.


In 2008 John Bock was approached by editor Christophe Daviet-Thery with the idea of creating an artist’s book. John Bock was initially inspired by a Japanese children’s book shaped like an insect, which morphed into his first idea of creating a book in the shape of his own silhouette, featuring a classic studio portrait on the cover. He later rejected this idea as too confining, and eventually arrived at a subsequent meeting with Christophe in Berlin with a doll-like figure tucked in the child seat of his bicycle. From that point on Bock’s book project evolved into a collection of standing figures or “puppet” – each stylized and patterned individually by the artist and his personal tailor, adormed with unique and colorful headgear, and equiped with hand-embroidered cloth “books” inspired by Japanese scrolls.

With Howdy Bamington John Bock has produced a project where the impulse to design a more traditional book eventually evolved into the complex fabrication of a self-portrait of the artist as a ” puppet” – a figure of uncommon humor, innocence, and personal style. John Bock’s “puppet” are conceptually connected to the notions of performance, provocation, and manipulation – all central to his pratice.

Christophe Daviet-Thery of CDT Éditions is most content when challenging the definition of a book. Though a collaborative process,CDT Éditions encourages artists to push the boundaries of what a book can be by offering them the opportunity to experiment with this medium.

John Bock (B.1965. Gribbolm- Germany) lives and works in Berlin. Recent solo shows and “lectures ” took place at Anton Kern Gallery, New York (2010); Barbican Art Gallery,London, UK (2010); and Tempräte Kunsthalle, Berlin, Germany (2010). John Bock has participated in numerous group exhibitions, including the 17th Sydney Biennal, Australia (2010); New Museum, New York (2010); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2009 and 2008); Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (2009); Venice Biennal, Italy (2005 and 1999); Lyon Biennal, France (2005); Manifesta 5, San Sebastien (2004); and Documenta 11, Kassel, Germany (2002), among many others.

Christophe Daviet-Thery Éditions would like to thank Lotte Moeller and the Klosterfeld Gallery in Berlin; Nathalie Rajo-Harrison; Grazi Masson and Isabelle Vogelgesang in Paris, Caisserie Chanussot in Dijon for their contribution and support for this exhibition. John Bock is represented by Anton Kern Gallery, New York and Regen Projects, Los Angeles.
