Book launch - "Displace" - January 21st Looiersgracht 60
As part of the Archive Event VII: Honeycombing (a dual presentation from artists Elena Khurtova and Marie Ilse Bourlanges) the launch of the limited edition artist book Displace by artist Elena Khurtova will take place on Saturday January 21st.
Displace explores the process of entering into a dialogue with soil as a living entity and offers an intimate insight into Elena Khurtova’s research, process, and personal connection with displaced soils. Mediating with excavated soil management terrains in Aix-en-Provence in the South of France, Elena Khurtova welcomed 45 tonnes of displaced soil in the garden of 3bisF. With essays by writer Amelia Groom and the artist, Displace addresses the materiality of soil through an interplay of imagery, text and tactility. Elena Khurtova and graphic designer Tariq Heijboer have applied these very soils as pigments in a duo-color offset print resulting in an artist book that represents the artistic process of collaborating with soil.
Saturday January 21st 15:00-17:00 Looiersgracht 60
During the book launch there will be a reading of essay contribution Longer thoughts than mind can have by Amelia Groom, followed by a discussion between the artist, researcher and curator Maddie Rose Hills and graphic designer Tariq Heijboer.
