FLIP — About Image Construction is the sequel to the exhibition Copy Construct held at CC Mechelen in 2017. Hosted this time at the KASK in Ghent, the exhibition focuses on displaying a temporary archive of about 300 artist’s books next to about a dozen filmic works. ‘FLIP’, the exhibition’s title, associatively refers to the performative gesture of perusing through a book but also to notions of image sequences, reversal (printing), the flipbook, as well as to the use of text and image in both books and video works. In short, the exhibition is an attempt to show these media together, emphasizing the use of narrative strategies and image construction as extensions of each other.
The books on display mainly stem from the KASK’s own artist’s book collection. In addition, four book collectors and publishers have been invited to show thematic book selections reacting to the exhibition’s theme. The books on display are set against a scenography conceived by Kris Kimpe and Koenraad Dedobbeleer. The layout of the tables which was conceived in the previous exhibition will now be staged once again, but this time within a large black box surrounded by the video works. The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive exhibition guide, designed by 6m56s, containing a complete bibliography of the displayed books and films.
With works by Franciszka & Stefan Themerson, Bruce Checefsky, Peter Downsbrough, Kasper Andreasen, Anouk De Clercq, Hanne Lippard, Stanley Brouwn, Henri Jacobs, Dirk Zoete, Jasper Rigole, Ulises Carrión, Vincent Geyskens & Jan Op de Beeck, Maud Vande Veire, Laetitia Gendre, Jelena Vanoverbeek, Hilary Lloyd, Kris Kimpe & Koenraad Dedobbeleer
And book selections by Moritz Küng, Batia Suter & Roger Willems, More Publishers, Jurgen Malfeyt, & the KASK Collection et al.
This exhibition is curated by Kasper Andreasen (DK/BE).
