Thursday 17 August 2017: Images, as absolute as possible

In 1962 while working on the installation of his room for the exhibition of the Zero Group at the Stedelijk Museum, Piero Manzoni describes to Peeters some of his current projects, although these are not to be realized. The first is to let loose twenty or so white chickens in the rooms of the museum.

'Oompah, Tom-tom, Tootle-too & Toot', an artist edition by Gaillard & Claude

Oompah, Tom-tom, Tootle-too & Toot narrates the story of four members of an orchestra who animatedly chat during a break backstage at the Henry Le Bœuf concert hall in Brussels. Through gossip, arguments, and existential crises, they shake the axioms and notions of community, authenticity and happiness.

Dialogues by Lili Reynaud-Dewar are illustrated by photographs realised by Kristien Daem. The sculptures depicted in the book are part of a larger corpus previously exhibited between 2015 and 2016 in Early Development of Calculus at Etablissement d’en face, A Proper Orchestra is Fun for Everyone! at Les Bains-Douches and A Finite Sum at In extenso.
