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
€ 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.
ANITA DI BIANCO, Corrections and Clarifications, 2001-2019
45 x 34 x 5,5 cm
cardboard box with 15 newspapers, various sizes
open edition; as a complete set published by the artist
published by the artist
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.’

cardboard box, loosely inserted colour photo in glued on photo corners, 9 offset prints incl. index sheet with credits, 2 CD’s fixed on inner side of lid, postcard
published by Tochnit Aleph, Berlin, Germany
“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…..”
From the liner-notes by Dorothy Iannone, November 2017
SALIM BAYRI, Sad Ali, 2017 [small version]
16,2 x 4,9 cm
print, lasered sky leather
signed, numbered, dated
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:

The signature is done with ballpoint at the lower part of the postcard. From a certain angle when the ink reflects the light one clearly detects the signature. This rather ephemeral handwriting makes the image undisturbed, and therefore very powerful.

After being invited to Manifesta 4, Christoph Büchel offered his participation rights to the highest bidder on eBay. The final bid was eventually $15,099.

This artist’s book defines five ways of handling the national flag of Denmark:
1. having stood for (as)
2. having stood in (as)
3. having stood up (as)
4. having stood over (as)
5. having stood down (as)
and hence creating various images of how one may use a flag e.g., in a patriotic sense, a colonial way, a representing manner, and so on.
