Doing Easy

Two small works of mine are currently on view in a wonderfully unique exhibition in a residence in Joshua Tree, in the High Desert of California. Curated by Erik Benjamins, Doing Easy is a domestic intervention that presents the work of visual artists, designers and writers who reflect on the sway of place.

Doing Easy optimistically engages with the domestic space as a privileged and underestimated sanctuary for reflection, education, production, and ritual. The presented works—ranging from a cork doorstop to a wooden chair to a folder of poems to a scented hand soap—have been installed in a way which allows them to slip into the daily routines and rhythms of a living, breathing home.

My autosummary poem ‘Eugene!’ based on Thomas Wolfe’s Look Homeward, Angel is placed on a bedside table. Real Estate Dreams. Nr. 1 The Candle, a small series of found real estate images is located on the kitchen wall.

Participants in the show: Alex Reed (US), Ashley Eden Kessler (US), David Horvitz (US), Elisabeth Tonnard (NL), Erik Benjamins (US), Janelle DolRayne (US), Jasper Morrison (UK), Lauren Godfrey (UK), Max Lamb (UK), Norma & Various Projects, Inc. (US), Pico Iyer (JP), Stef Halmos (US), Susan Barbour (US), Yeb Wiersma (NL).

For the past three years burning with pleasure has aimed, once a year, to report on the present production of innovative artists’ books from around the world. The selection intends to reflect on contemporary image culture and to broaden the discourse on photography and photobooks.

Artists presented include Francis Alÿs, Yto Barrada, Ruth van Beek, Katrien de Blauwer, Anouk Kruithof, Raymond Meeks, Jean-Luc Moulène, Joachim Schmid, Elisabeth Tonnard and Daisuke Yokota.

Exhibition Uncensored Books

The Plan will be on view in Uncensored Books, an exhibition curated by Natasha Christia which runs from April 7 to 18 during Belgrade Photo Month.

The show brings together a series of photobooks and installations that address in a critical way, through both their content and form, the production, uses / misuses, consumption and circulation of the Image today within dominant mass ideology’s narrative systems. By exploring new dissemination and audience engagement channels, many of its featured titles point to the potential role of photography and books can assume as activism tools.

Photobooks and installations by Valentina Abenavoli (Akina Books), Francesco Amorosino (self-published), Juliá (KWY Ediciones), Lewis Bush (dummy-Brave Books), Brad Feuerhelm (Chaco Books), Amak Mahmoodian (ICVL Studio / RRB Publishing), Christof Nuessli (Cpress), Carlos Spottorno (Astiberri Ediciones), Europe: An Illustrated Introduction to Migrants and Refugees and Fictional Journal.

Photobook projects by: Patrícia Almeida(Ghost Editions), Julián Barón (self-published / Editorial RM), Martin Bollati-Rigoberto Díaz Julián- Veronica Fieiras(Chaco Books), Brad Feuerhelm (Paralaxe Editions), Ben Helton (self-published), Edmund Clark (Here Press), Daniel Mayrit (Phree /Riot Books), Christof Nuessli (Cpress), Elisabeth Tonnard (self-published), Jan Dirk van der Burg (self-published).
