      Dutch Landscape XVII

      À l’occasion de son exposition chez Florence Loewy, José Quintanar présente pour la première fois Dutch Landscape 17, son plus récent projet, parmi une série de livres de cette série. Dutch Landscape 17 est un livre qui ne consomme pas de papier, mais parasite les livres existants. Un « Dutch Landscape » et un dessin de ce paysage. Un paysage de 78 lignes, disposé et placé à l’intérieur d’un livre de 12 pages, chacune contenant 1 à 12 lignes. Un livre comme paysage dessiné à la main à l’intérieur d’un autre livre. Un paysage dans un paysage. 78 livres trouvés sur les marchés aux puces de Rotterdam, Amsterdam et La Haye tout au long de l’année 2023. Livres de cuisine, livres pour enfants, livres d’architecture, livres d’art, livres d’archéologie, manuels, littérature, atlas ou catalogues commerciaux. Une bibliothèque de livres qui n’ont jamais été réunis auparavant et qui définissent d’une certaine manière le paysage culturel et social d’un territoire.

      One Hundred and some boats

      « If I had to define Rotterdam with two images, on the one hand, I would say a flower in a window, and on the other, a ship stranded in the port.
      For many afternoons, and before going to sleep, my son would sit with me on the drawing table and ask me to draw one boat after another. He was so obsessed with that activity that we built more than two hundred boats. All the same size and drawn with the same pencil. In this book, Hugo, the publisher, and I have tried to make a selection of the most significant, one hundred and some. » José Quintanar

      Un Paisaje Holandés

      « Un Paisaje Holandés » is the exercise of synthesizing a traditional and historic art subject in Netherland to a simple drawing game using very rudimentary rules and constrictions. Playing with the concept of appropriation and settling, the book works as protocol, as ritual, or as a narrative device where the same landscape is drawn again and again until to disappear.

      FARTLEK

      FARTLEK was a revolutionary training system for runners created by Gösta Olander in a tiny cabin of Volodalen, Sweeden, with the meaning of a speed game. During the sixties, the most important athletes visited Gosta during summer for training under this system. It was based on the recognition of the landscape and the personal introspection of the runner. The purpose of this training was not only to run faster or to keep a better physical condition. But also to change the way of running and to know oneself better. Or in another word, running as a alternative method of meditation.

      FARTLEK is also an artistic project. It´s the experiment to translate this training method for runners into the exercise of drawing. During three years and each night I drew for one hour following the Fartlek´s steps. The result was more than eight hundred drawings, of which four hundred are inside of this book.

      Weak Tongue / Sharp Smile

      Sharp Smile was an exhibition project conceived for MACRO, Rome, by artist Eva Barto to unfold with and in contrast to its counterpart in Paris, the show Weak Tongue at Le Plateau – Frac île-de-France. Both exhibitions, which took place one after the other in 2022, continued and expanded Barto’s research into the relationships that govern the codes of property and production, and in particular into the legal and economic infrastructures that regulate liaisons of philanthropy and patronage in the contemporary artworld and beyond.

      While Weak Tongue focused on the ambiguities of omission, on the manipulations, interpretations, and deviations of rules and of laws, which exist to protect both those who make and those who circumvent them, Sharp Smile, on the other hand, disclosed the very mechanisms concealed by the Parisian exhibition by implementing a seemingly opposite strategy: virtue signalling.

      The current publication gathers the elements of negotiation involved in both projects.

      Music Book
      Le fac-similé d’un livre d’artiste de Sarah Cain, comprenant une série d’abstractions colorées peintes en palimpseste directement sur une collection de partitions musicales anciennes.

      Le livre de musique original a été trouvé en Suisse et les peintures de Cain qui s’y superposent entrent en collision avec les notes manuscrites de l’ancien propriétaire et y répondent. Music Book est une extension des œuvres sur papier de Cain qui transposent sa pratique de l’installation et de la peinture à grande échelle : ces œuvres sont des méditations intimes, complexes et à petite échelle.
      Cain peint Music Book depuis 2008 et l’a transporté dans trois studios. « C’est ce journal du temps que vous pouvez ouvrir, commencer, refermer, ranger, comme un journal intime ».
