Sometimes an edition is loaded with information about the artist’s mindset while its appearance suggests the opposite, for a part due to its self-evidence. Such a piece is ‘Cercle et Carré’ with its geometrical forms, the aesthetics of simplicity, the functionality of formal design, the ambition of the avant-garde and humour; it is all there.
John Armleder is renowned for re-introducing abstract art in a dominating one-way art market in the early eighties of the previous century, for referring to predecessors in art history (hence the title ‘Cercle et Carré’) and for ‘making art that is comparable to making a B-film’ as he describes it. In this sense this edition is as banal as that. ‘Cercle et Carré’ has the look of a modernist Italian design, yet all three parts have been composed and put together by the artist, as if it is an installation. He put together lamp, pedestal and a piece of metal, then switched on the light. KvG

When John Armleder made this multiple in 1991 he was quite attracted by the transportability of this foldable multiple. He considers this sculptural edition as an ultimate example of a multiple that is a true three dimensional work, and yet can very easily be carried around to any place on the world.

* For preparing his first solo exhibition in The Netherlands John Armleder
asked me to drive him around to all kinds of shops and places. In the Makro
– a supermarket for shopkeepers in the outskirts of Amsterdam – he was attracted
by a large bed for pets. Amongst other things one large grey blue dog bed was
picked out by him and taken to the gallery. He noticed a huge pile of smaller dog
beds as well and the next day a GALERIE VAN GELDER EDITIONS was made.

John M Armleder: ”Arrivé dans la galerie, je sus immédiatement que j’avais commis
l’erreur de ne pas m’en être procuré une grande provision afin de faire un multiple,
mais Kees van Gelder corrigea cette bévue et nous eûmes bientôt trente petits lits
(un stock de taille: où dormiront les petits chiens de la région ?) que je m’appliquai
à signer et numéroter.”
