WJM KOK, Off Color (Crimson), 2019

Featured

WJM KOK, Off Color (Crimson), 2019
7 x 7 cm
oil paint on canvas, wooden mini-easel; ca 11 x 8 x 8 cm
open series, unique works
signed, dated
€ 222,- plus € 12,- registered mail Track & Trace


When ordered colour will differ from the colour shown above.

 

Striking in the work of Wjm Kok is his interest in open or closed series, i.e. limited in number as a pure consequence of a conceived system. He wants to make series that are not a goal in itself, but rather a result of a method to keep as far away as possible from an emotional choice. He likes to make work that is not hierarchical and that also does not refer to a pronounced uniqueness.

In the open series ‘Off Color’, Wjm Kok mixes a color directly on the canvas with the help of seven ad randem tufts of paint squeezed from the paint tube. The color is not easily predictable and often also produces a surprising effect for him during the making.

Corrections and Clarifications is an ongoing series of newspapers, each time containing an edited compilation of corrections ad randomly collected from daily international news. Each issue covering merely a list of corrections page after page.
In the paper issued in December 2016 (edition of 200) the colophon reads as follows: ‘Corrections and Clarifications is an ongoing publication, an intermittent compilation of daily revisions, retractions, re-wordings, distinctions and apologies to print news from September 2001 to the present. A reverse-chronological cataloging of lapses in naming and classification, of tangled catchphrases, detectable patterns of mis-speech and inflection, distraction, connotation and enumeration.’

“Not every love is forever, nor is an unimaginable longevity necessary in order that a love qualify as memorable. I once derived a great deal of pleasure as well as artistic inspiration (and eventually, some pain, I must admit) from a sexual and intellectual friendship with an emotionally thrifty (as he himself would be the first to admit) but very beautiful gentleman from a neighbouring country, north of Berlin, my adopted home, and whom I’m so glad I met long ago.

“These recordings were made for him, to give him pleasure, and pride in his being, as well as for myself, so that I could continue my immersion in our relationship when, for short periods, we were apart…..”

print, lasered sky leather
signed, numbered, dated
edition 4

Salim Bayri surrounds himself with an alter ego that he calls Sad Ali, a shortening of “sad alien”. This figure has no organs, undertakes no actions and opposite to a cartoon personality he doesn’t talk. As a kind of ambulant search machine he runs around checking out situations and things.
Salim Bayri: ‘I mostly use computer generated images, sound, footage and short actions because of their speed and fluidity.’

Salim Bayri is nominated for the Nationale Nederlanden Group Award 2018. The other nominees:

SYLVIE FLEURY, portrait of a gallerist [wearing bow tie by John M Armleder], 1991

SYLVIE FLEURY, portrait of a gallerist (wearing bow tie by John M Armleder), 1991
2 unique black and white analogue photo prints
each 15,6 x 10,5 cm / 10,5 x 15,6 cm
signed note, envelope, date-stamped 6-11-1991, 4 parts
inv.SF 377-pr

These photos were taken during the instalment of John Armleder’s second solo exhibition at Galerie van Gelder in 1991, for which he made a.o. three large Pour paintings. He dipped two bow ties into a puddle of paint that was leaking from the paintings leaning against the wall. Sylvie immortalised that action by taking a picture of the gallerist wearing one of the ties.
Vaguely, I remember that Sylvie Fleury wanted to capture my more than average height by photographing from a frog’s point of view. i am not sure, I should ask her about this, I guess. KvG

The letterhead on the notepad sheet reads: “Those SHOES! I must have Those SHOES!” – Confessions of a Crazed Shopper.

Here the publisher is both dress designer and seller with the help of RedBubble Inc., a company that specializes in Order-on-demand. The print on the fabric is taken from the couver of a catalogue.
One may wonder whether this production – with the artist’s name ostentatious reproduced on the fabric – is made with the consent of Gerhard Richter. Yet, The Archive is Limited brings also unsigned works together, that have been produced during the artist’s lifetime. As such this skirt edition is archived as an authentic work. We consider it as being indirectly approved by or made with the consent of the artist, since apparently no legal forces prevented to have the offered item for sale. One may also look at it as an abuse of Gerhard Richter’s work and name or as a piracy’s action to reproduce the couver of a catalogue showing the name of its publisher Hatje Cantz.
In any case, this is clearly a matter of Product art, no doubt about that. KvG

Note.
On 19th of December 2023 this item was not for sale anymore. Between the 11th and 19th of December suddenly this skirt disappeared from the website of RedBubble, for unknown reasons.
