Déformation Professionnelle Nairy Baghramian

Published by S.M.A.K., Ghent, 2016, 26 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 14.8 × 21 cm, Dutch / French / English

Price: €4

Pamhplet produced on the occasion of Nairy Baghramian’s solo show Déformation Professionnelle, 26 November 2016 – 19 February 2017.

Déformation Professionnelle was a new production that built on 18 sets of works in the artist’s oeuvre from 1999 to 2016. Baghramian alludes to existing work and associated elements, from discarded ideas to working material. In this exhibition she was, in her own words, “surveying the survey”. By refusing to show what exists and nevertheless reconsider it in the ‘new’, the exhibition connected to fundamental questions about progress and economy and asks when something ceases to exist, and how something new comes into being.

Her early Dance Constructions were influential to the reinventing of dance in New York that happened in the 60s and 70s.

Michael Asher Le Consortium, Dijon postcards

Published by Le Consortium, Dijon, 1991, 16 colour postcards, 15 × 10.5 cm, French

Price: €20 (Out of stock)

Produced on the occassion of Michael Asher’s exhibition at Le Consortium Dijon, 7 June – 27 July 1991.

The work on show in Dijon depicted the heating systems in the basements of sixteen of the well-known architectural landmarks in a city famous for its tourism. On the walls of the exhibition space Asher exactly reproduced the schematic engineering diagrams of interior axial cuts for the heaters belonging to each of the buildings chosen. Painted in black at the same height as the actual heaters, the diagrams, on a purely formal level, presented eccentric shapes and seemingly abstract designs while expressing vigilant precision and regulated linearity.

A set of color postcards, meant to have been sold in the city at souvenir stores and available for viewing and purchase at the reception desk, completed the exhibition as a whole. The photographs of the heaters-displayed on postcards as if they were historic monuments or scenic views-correlated with the schematic wall drawings, grounding them in the functional reality of furnaces composed of oil burners, water heaters, pressure tanks, gages, pipes, and so on.
