Posture Editions presenteert:
Nikolaas Demoen — Labyrinth

Posture Editions presenteert:
Labyrinth door Nikolaas Demoen - boekpresentatie

Vrijdag 7 feb 20:00 uur
Kunsthal Gent (ingang Oud Huis, hek Lange Steenstraat)

Labyrinth visualiseert een wereld waarbij de uitgang onvindbaar is of de uitgang in overdaad aanwezig is en daardoor toch onvindbaar. Labyrinth maakt een wandeling doorheen de geconstrueerde ruimtes binnen de bladspiegel van het boek. Met de morfologie van het huis (ramen, deuren, trappen en gordijnen) en het toneel (gordijnen, podium, perspectief) wordt een wereld opgeroepen waarin we het noorden kwijt zijn.
De ervaring is vergelijkbaar met surfen op het internet, scrollen door instagram, het openleggen van een galerie-plan van Art Brussels of winkelen in een Franse supermarkt.
De beelden in Labyrint zijn in houtblokken gesneden. Christophe Van Gerrewey schrijft voor deze editie een tekst als een doolhof. Het integrale boek wordt gedrukt in letterpress.

20:00 gesprek met Nikolaas Demoen en Koen Brams
20:30 screening Papers, Books and Bolero

De boekpresentatie van Labyrinth valt samen met de presentatie van 'Paper, Books and Bolero'*, de nieuwe film van Nikolaas Demoen.



*De film 'Papers, Books and Bolero' is een dialoog tussen in karton gefictionaliseerde Franse filosofen en gevonden beelden in boeken en losse papieren, en suggereert een mogelijke relatie tussen de verschillende afbeeldingen. Enerzijds toont de film werken uit de kunstgeschiedenis (Tiepolo, Palladio,...) en anderzijds verschijnen beelden uit glossy magazines (Purple Fashion, Vogue). Beide uiteenlopende bronnen worden met elkaar in verband gebracht door sculpturale artefacten uit karton en klei. Op het ritme van Maurice Ravels Bolero verschijnen één voor één de papers and books, die de kijker gaandeweg in een roes brengen.

Papers, Books and Bolero, 2020
