Jimmie Durham
Published by M HKA, Antwerp, 1993, foldout poster / booklet (b/w ill.), 14.7 × 21 cm (folded) 42 × 29.5 cm (unfolded), English
Price: €25

A contribution from the original publication On Taking a Normal Situation and Retranslating it Into Overlapping and Multiple Readings of Conditions Past and present.

An exhibition devised by Yves Aupetitallot, Iwona Blazwick and Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev within the framework of ANTWERP 93. Its title was inspired by Gordon Matta Clark who made one of his final works in the city, and which in turn led to the foundation of M HKA. In some ways the subject of this exhibition was ‘the exhibition’. What it proposed, however, was a new relation between structure, location, context, artist and audience.

Kristján Guðmundsson

Price: €2

Kristján Guðmundsson (born 1941) is a contemporary Icelandic conceptual artist. He started his career as an artist in the 1960s as a member of SÚM – a group of young artists influenced by then-new currents in conceptual and installation art. Guðmundsson’s art reflects both prevailing traditions in late 20th century western art in general, and the dominance of abstract and conceptual art in the post-war art of Iceland in particular. He has said, “I am trying to work within the field of tension that exists between nothing and something”.

Paris, When It's Naked
Etel Adnan
Published by The Post-Apollo Press, Sausalito, 1993, 115 pages, 13.8 × 20.2 cm, English
Price: €14 (Temporarily out of stock)

Etel Adnan’s novel “Paris, When It’s Naked amazes our retinas, ears, lips, fingertips, and noses with sensing, talking, and envisioning the city of Baudelaire and Delacroix, Mallarme and Picasso, Sartre and Djuna Barnes, Miller and Nin, Vietnamese and African refugees, revolutions and Bohemia. This tale of the Creative Now is told through the fine-tuned sensibility of Etel Adnan, the expatriate poet-painter who knows the French Capital as wholly as she does Beirut and San Francisco, her other homes. She is also the author of Sitt Marie-Rose, an underground novel of the Lebanese Civil War, and many books of poetry. Her new work is a philosophically charged lyric in prose. The elan vital of every word evokes the eternal present of this wise woman. A highly personal, life-enhancing masterpiece in a deathly age of impersonality. An indispensable book by an indispensable writer”—Morgan Gibson.

“Written against the background of war at the turn of this century, this millennium—the Gulf War, the Lebanese civil war and the military occupations of that country, the author’s country of origin—these letters, Of Cities & Women, are in their turn now letters to cities and women—that we, that is, women and men alike, might eventually, before it is too late, ‘find the right geography for our revelations.'”—Barbara Harlow
