Plage la Grande Salinette is a popular seaside resort with a view on the bay of Saint-Briac-sur-Mer in France. The owners of publishing house More Publishers invited David Horvitz to make a postcard for a next edition. He came up with the idea to glue beach sand of that resort on a card. Hence the above postcard “Untitled (la Grande Salinette)” that was produced on the spot.

The back of the card mentions ‘From a distance…” that refers to a series of postcards that the publishers Tim Ryckaert and Amélie Laplanche have started to issue in 2023. Every time when they stay in Saint-Briac-sur-Mer they may launch a new edition produced ad hoc. Hence the name of this series that alludes with the fact that a plan has to be made and carried out ‘From a distance…’ while the publishing house is located in Belgium.

Sometimes publications hide works of renown artists. The page of Michael Werner Galerie announces the selling of the Museum of Modern Art Marcel Broodthaers founded in 1968. He designed this page and nineteen signed dust couvers were wrapped around the Cologne art fair catalogue.
The same catalogue contains an advertisement of Wide White Space Gallery shows 24 couvers of publications, a page called ‘Ma Collection’ (trans. “My Collection”) specially designed for the occasion by Marcel Broodthaers.

During the time this press release was made – and read by Sylvie Fleury before launching – her work was not yet contextualised and interpreted by critics as feministic when it comes to her works related to art made by male artists. Visitors coming to her exhibition in the gallery commented: ‘Kees, this is not art, this is fashion!’

Nowadays, Sylvie Fleury says: ‘I’ve always been very interested in the mechanisms of desire — how objects elicit desire, and how brands create that sense of longing. These were things that felt really new when I started working in the 90s, when consumerism was really accelerating.’
Interview in iD by Mahoro Seward, 16 June, 2022


“Sylvie Fleury is extremely fascinated by fashion and everything that has to do with it. She is interested in actual fashion as well in fashion from e.g., the sixties. A lot of her work is used by her as complete or partial ‘ready-made’, but the cooler / rational pragmatism of e.g., American artists is not to be found in her work. She does not claim a priori a critical attitude such as artists like Jeff Koons, Haim Steinbach and others do. Her work derives in the first place from an inner necessity to create an image that is essential to her and is full of actual elements of which meaning is more than unequivocal.
It is remarkable to see in this exhibition how the images of the world of existing things turn into autonomous artworks in spite of the strong recognizability of these existing things. For instance, the colourful fake fur on stretcher has a high degree of inviting to caress and therefore these artworks evoke a beautiful sensual gesture to the exhibition as a whole. The shoes on the floor emphasize once more this physical element of an exact fitting shoe that creates a feeling of well-being. In contrast to this element, one is confronted with her new GALERIE VAN GELDER EDITION set out all over the gallery, but at the same time these photographs are reproductions of fashion magazines she regularly reads with eagerness. Often this peculiar commitment can be traced in her works.”

GUGLIELMO ACHILLE CAVELLINI, n.d. [self-historificated CV, ca 1975]

inv.GAC 772-pr

In the early seventies Mail artist Guglielmo Achille Cavellini predicts his death in 2014, and in 1971 he describes his work being part of a large retrospective at the Ducale Palace, Venice. This becomes part of the artist’s autostoricizzazione; self-historifisation. He loved the Italian flag tricolors and used them in his work. He created the “Cavellini sticker” always in red, white and green that bore the dates of the fast approaching Cavellini Centennial: 1914-2014. The above print shows his home-made self-historification, completed with the colours of the Italian flag.
