Finissage afternoon for the last day of the exhibition A Burning Bag as a Smoke-Grey Lotus, by Canadian artist Gareth Moore.
The instrumental sculptures conceived by the artist are activated throughout the afternoon and drinks are served on Saturday 20 June from 1 until 7 pm.
On the top floor of the building, art publishers MER. Paper Kunsthalle and Théophile’s Papers presented their recent and less recent artist publications, special editions and signed books.
About the art publishers MER. Paper Kunsthalle & Théophile’s Papers:
Coming from different backgrounds and perspectives, both publishers meet at a common point where they like to explore the different aspects of the book medium not only through publishing but also with temporary book installations and experiments. MER.Paper Kunsthalle and Théophile’s Papers recently co-published and co-edited book “Palimpsest” by Sébastien Capouet (laureate of Prix Fernand Baudin 2014).
Théophile’s Papers is a platform created in 2011 in Brussels by Théophile Calot. Expanding from temporary and itinerant art book panoramas to founding its own brick and mortar bookshop in Brussels, Théophile’s Papers now primarily focuses on publishing books and zines of upcoming artists.
Founded in Gent in 2005, MER.Paper Kunsthalle encounters the book as a broad medium for exhibition of contemporary art and moves between artists books, institution monographies and audio releases. MER. also organises the MER. stations, a series of nomadic curatorial experiments exploring the possibilities of the artist book in non-book related spaces.
