Floating Worlds

Max Pinckers & Daisuke Yokota

Co-published with Rorhof

Floating worlds is a catalogue for an exhibition curated by Nicolo Degiorgis at foto-forum Gallery, Bolzano/Bozen, Italy, in May 2016. The exhibition brings together Yokota's Linger and Pinckers' Two Kinds of Memory and Memory Itself, and is translated into a book by showing a selection of installation views. It is printed in two separate, but interwoven parts, held together by pages folded alternately into each other (presented in wrapping paper with a red handprinted linocut title block).

Softcover, 160 x 240 mm, edition of 1000, two books, 44 pages each, Lyre 3, July 2016

Max Pinckers & Quinten de Bruyn

In the series Lotus (2011) Max Pinckers and Quinten De Bruyn document the world of transsexuals in Thailand. The gender crisis that the so-called ladyboys face is transformed into a visual metaphor about the identity crisis that contemporary documentary photography currently encounters, when it dares to reflect upon itself critically, and confront its paradoxes. The documentary photographer that captures reality as 'a fly on the wall' can't deny his or her directive and manipulative role any longer. The anonymity, the seeming absence, is merely a pose. The tableaux that the photographer captures are not lies, but enfold themselves within the studio that he or she creates from reality.

The Absence of a Permanent I

Gauthier Oushoorn

Gauthier Oshoorn lives and works in Brussels. He has a profound interest in the definition of space. Architecture is his recurring frame of reference while his trained craftsmanship acts both as a utility and obstruction. Through sculptural work he explores the elements to create space. The Absence of a Permanent I was commissioned by EUROPALIA ARTS FESTIVAL for the exhibition The Absence of a Permanent I at Centre d'innovation et de design, Grand-Hornu, Hornu, Belgium, 2015.

Softcover, 160 x 210 mm, edition of 750, 176 pages, ISBN: 9789082465501, Lyre 1, November 2015
