Posture Editions N° 19: Nel Aerts ‘Hundred Zundert’

Nel Aerts spent a three-month residency at the Vincent Van GoghHuis in Zundert, the village where Van Gogh grew up. Instead of trying to toe the artist’s footsteps, she positioned herself in the iconic interior of the sexton’s house, creating a frame for an extended series of self portraits.
Posture Editions selected one hundred of these ballpoint pen drawings and rendered them full-sized in the publication Hundred Zundert. Nel Aerts already presented a first set of these drawings during her recent exhibition Billenkoek at KIOSK, and for this occasion she will return with a single-day show and a silkscreen poster edition.

Exhibition open from 10am until 7pm.
Book launch at 5pm, with introductions by Ron Dirven and Wim Waelput.

BOOK Hundred Zundert: 160p — €25
EDITION of 15: silkscreen, manually coloured, signed and numbered.
With the support of Vincent Van GoghHuis Zundert, KIOSK, and Lord Nelson.

Zachary Formwalt

At 3 pm, KIOSK presents the book Zachary Formwalt – Three Exchanges, in the presence of artist Zachary Formwalt; the book launch is followed by a screening of the artist’s most recent video, An Unknown Quantity (2015, 35’) in the KASKcinema.

The book was made on the occasion of Formwalt’s 2014 and 2015 solo shows at KIOSK, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (SMBA) and Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCAB) Belgrado, respectively. Both exhibitions revolved around the same theme and works: our contemporary global economy, as analyzed by Formwalt in three video installations in which he uses the stock exchange building as a metaphor for the impossibility of visualizing the continuously circulating flows of capital in the contemporary financial world.

Now, we present the third instalment of the video trilogy, which was not yet shown at KIOSK. In An Unknown Quantity, Formwalt aims his camera on the Amsterdam Exchange, built in 1903 by socialist architect H.P. Berlage. How was Berlage, famous for his social housing projects for Amsterdam labourers, able to reconcile his idealism with this commission to design the palace of capitalism?

In collaboration with KASKcinema.

The book Zachary Formwalt – Three Exchanges was published by Roma Publications (ROMA 257), in collaboration with Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (SMBA), Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCAB) Belgrado and KIOSK.

LE FAUX SOIR

KIOSK was invited to participate in this year’s edition of Art Brussels in the not-for-profit section. KIOSK will present a series of four newspaper editions, one for each day of the fair, conceived by artists who have previously shown work at KIOSK.

The project Le Faux Soir takes its title from a one-off counterfeit of the French-language Belgian newspaper Le Soir. This ‘spoof edition’ was published on 9 November 1943 by the Belgian resistance organisation The Independent Front. Le Faux Soir humorously subverted the propagandist discourse of the occupying forces with the explicit aim of ridiculing them, distributing thousands of copies in the kiosks of Brussels.

Inspired by the story of Le Faux Soir, KIOSK has invited four artists to make a newspaper edition. In their practices, these artists engage with the relation between language, meaning and representation – often with a note of humour or irony. The artists often use the publication format in their practice, and some take up Marcel Broodthaers’s strategy of using fictional means to visualize hidden realities. The artists are: Mekhitar Garabedian, Rana Hamadeh, Sophie Nys, and Koenraad Dedobbeleer.

If you would like to have a copy of the newspapers, just send an e-mail to kiosk@hogent.be or visit our exhibition and get free copies at the counter.
