“[…] Das krasse war ja eigentlich immer: Wenn man dann Zuhause im Bett lag, im Hochbett im Kinderzimmer und gemerkt hat: es ist Mondschein da draussen und die hinterlassenen Zeichen* und selbstgebauten Möbel und so sind genau jetzt, mitten in der Nacht, immer noch da an ihrem Fleck und warten auf Einen! Und dann kam man da ein paar Tage später bei Sonnenlicht wieder hin und alles war noch an seinem Platz. Als wäre nichts. Und wie man dann plötzlich irgendwie Respekt oder Ehrfurcht oder so vor den Zeichen* und Dingen hatte, die es da so ganz allein in der Gruselnacht ausgehalten haben. Für sich im geheimen war man sich plötzlich sicher: Krass! Die sind krasser als man selbst! [lacht] […]”

Book launch Beyond Imagination / A Zona de Crepúsculo by Pablo Pijnappel

Please join us for the book launch and reading of

Beyond Imagination / A Zona de Crepúsculo by Pablo Pijnappel
at ELGARAFI BOM DIA
Linienstr. 158, 10115 Berlin
Friday 28 February, 7 pm

This book was published on the occasion of the artist’s solo exhibition, Zona de Crepúsculo, at the Iberê Camargo Foundation, Brazil, in 2018, curated by Bernardo José de Souza. The following texts are a rendering, in written form, of monologues included in his performance The Zone, 2015-2018. The artwork consists of an after-hours tour in and around a given exhibition space, where a series of found narratives are performed by the artist.

With psychoanalysis and literature as his usual starting points, Pablo Pijnappel’s works are meta-narratives that poetically combine cultural, historical and ancestral identities through the prism of memory. Language always plays a leading role in uniting mental mechanisms and the world, in video installations, texts, or performances that lie at the crossroads between cinema, photography, and fragments of prose.

A special poster edition by the author (photo taken by Andrew de Freitas) will be available.
€65, edition of 50

Please arrive early due to limited seating.

Book Launch VOL. XVI by Haris Epaminonda and Santiago da Silva

You are warmly invited to the book presentation of
VOL. XVI by Haris Epaminonda and Santiago da Silva

at ELGARAFI BOM DIA
Linienstraße 158, 10115 Berlin
Saturday, November 30
6pm

A special edition by Haris Epaminonda will be available at the event

The publication is a collaborative project bewtween Frac Île-de-France, the Cypriot artist Haris Epaminonda, and the Berlin designers Santiago da Silva and Simon Steinberger.

It recounts and translates the experience of the exhibition VOL. XVI, presented in Paris at Le Plateau in 2015, for which the artist had created a global environment. Through a series of parallel actions the whole exhibition was connecting the interior and exterior with the presence of an old Japanese man inhabiting the exhibition spaces, activating many of the elements present, meanwhile two young women dressed in traditional Japanese costumes were simultaneously taking frequent walks in the Buttes-Chaumont Park situated nearby.

This book concentrates the different perspectives of the artist’s work, where the idea of fiction, of displacement – an encounter in time and space – offers a unique spatial and cinematographic experience.

At the same time, the book gathers three critical essays written by Philippe Artières (Historian and Research Director in CNRS, EHESS), Chris Sharp (Independent art critic and curator), and Aurélie Verdier (Art Historian and curator at Musée National d’Art Moderne, MNAM-CCI, Centre Georges Pompidou).

Oblique Time With Claude Parent

You are warmly invited to the launch of
Mai Abu ElDahab and Benjamin Seror
Oblique Time With Claude Parent

at
ELGARAFI BOM DIA
Linienstraße 158, 10115 Berlin
Friday, September 13
7 pm

On the occasion of the release Oblique Time with Claude Parent, the artist Benjamin Seror and the curator Mai Abu ElDahab will present a visual trajectory of the development of Claude Parent’s drawing practice as formative to his architectural imaginary.

Over six decades, architect Claude Parent (Paris, 1923-2016) developed an experimental body of work (both through construction and drawing) that led him to the conclusion that the most effective way to build a city would be based on the function oblique – designing architecture only using slanted floors. This seemingly simple gesture would dramatically change how we think and use the spaces we inhabit. The book covers two years when Benjamin Seror and Mai Abu ElDahab interviewed Parent about his adventurous professional life: From his collaboration with Paul Virilio, to his Tour de France promoting the oblique, to his controversial engagement with the French state to design nuclear power stations. Most importantly, the publication and presentation, introduce Parent’s passion for risk-taking as the elementary tool needed to bring architecture out of its restrictive conventions.

The publication of the book was made possible with the support of the Cnap and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Art.
