Bertrand Lavier est un artiste pluridisciplinaire. Il investit différentes formes d’expression artistique à travers des techniques variées : installation, peinture, sculpture, photographie, infographie et plus récemment le domaine de la musique et de la lumière. Il s’approprie et transforme des objets de la vie quotidienne issus directement de la culture populaire afin de les détourner en de véritables œuvres d’art. Il place ses créations modifiées dans des lieux d’expositions, de façon à ce que leur statut même s’en trouve remis en question. Ces œuvres quasi déconcertantes amènent le spectateur à s’interroger sur les principes fondamentaux de l’art.

La série des Walt Disney Productions, inaugurée en 1984 et régulièrement exposée depuis, est composée d’agrandissements par Lavier de tableaux abstraits, griffonés par le dessinateur de Mickey pour une aventure du héros éponyme dans un musée d’Art moderne. L’artiste a également réalisé les sculptures imaginées dans cet album. En isolant ces éléments de décor et en les reproduisant à taille réelle, il fait accéder au statut d’objet d'art ce qui n’était que décor et fiction.

«Je me suis aperçu (…) que c’étaient de bons tableaux ! C’est ce qui est formidable ! Ces tableaux qui sortent d’une espèce d’imaginaire moyen remplissent tout à fait leur rôle dans la réalité… »
Bertrand Lavier

Ingo Giezendanner




 "My previous picture book was about a train trip to Baku, this book documents my ferry trip accross the Mediterranean Sea to Alexandria (or Iskandariyah as it is called in Arabic). I was invited to exhbit my work and conduct a workshop organized by the artist-run Alexandria Contemporary Arts Forum (ACAF). This paperback is a selection of the many drawings that transpired on this amazing journey.







  Not all my drawings are of a scene that catches my eye. Often it starts with coming across a really comfortable spot where I can sit undisturbed for some time amongst the hustle and rumble of a busy city. This, for me, can be quite meditative. Later, I scan the drawings to upload onto my website and other applications.






  This time round, I also experimented with the drawings and hope to present this book as my personal development or work in progress. I wish to share the overwhelming experience of drawing the ocean and have tried to capture the simultaneous static second and fluid element of the water by flushing the drawings through a scanner and allowing them to distort as they wish to flow, much like the city, much like life itself."

Daniel Steegmann Mangrané

172 mm × 245 mm 512 pages, 256 color illustrations, softcover ISBN 978-3-943514-08-7

Started in 1998, the Lichtzwang series consists today of more than 300 watercolors, all on 15 x 21 cm sheets of graph paper.

Most works in the series are made up of groups of several watercolors wherein each successive work is a variation of the previous, showing a transformation. The last watercolor usually matches the first one, so that each group forms a loop that could be installed in any order.

The process of realization is, however, guided by simple rules (play with the grid on the sheet, each item that appears in the watercolor lasts for three sheets), rules that bind while allowing improvisation and the introduction of a certain randomness in the process.

These watercolors have the generic title Lichtzwang (lightduress or lightconstraint) which in turn is the title of a book of poems by Paul Celan. Between 2000 and 2003 Daniel dedicated himself exclusively to this work, and it was at this time and through these watercolors that many of the interests and issues later explored in other media came to the fore, such as: color; space; time; structure; movement; modularity; variation; permutation; narrative; language; the loop ...

This publication comprises a selection of 256 watercolours made between 1998 and 2012 and was typed with the new Lichtzwang typeface and is published on the occasion of the presentation of the work at the 2012 São Paulo Biennial The Imminence of Poetics.

30 copies include an original drawing signed and numbered by the artist available at Mendes Wood gallery who through their generous support made this publication possible.

Daniel Steegmann Mangrané was born in Barcelona in 1977 and since 2004 lives in Brazil.

Franz Mon

 
1926, Frankfurt, Alemanha - Vive em Frankfurt
​ Como poeta e artista, Franz Mon joga com aspectos essenciais da linguagem e do texto. Mon aproveita-se de mídias prontas e disponíveis: máquinas de escrever, xilogravuras, adesivos de letras e gravações de áudio, entre outras. Desde a década de 1960, as máquinas de escrever têm sido seu principal instrumento para dar forma a constelações em letras de poesia concreta e experimental. Suas colagens e poemas visuais transmitem mensagens com conotações surreais e desafiam a legibilidade habitual: texto e imagem coincidem e juntos informam a percepção.(http://www.bienal.org.br)
