Zin Taylor: Palms of the Fog

80 pages / English / Softcover, 11 x 19 cm 

ISBN 9788867490776 / € 12

Text by Zin Taylor

“Here we are, we’ve arrived on an island jungled with palm trees. Soaring thin trunks, crowned with extended leaves, sway in response to the traveling wind.” So begins the new book by Canadian artist Zin Taylor, a recount of the formative power of music, rock bands, record shops, zines and, mostly, fortuitous encounters. The fog, a metaphor for how elusive memory can be, in its in-between state, is “breath made thick, ” and the narratives collected by Taylor echo the structure of a generative cycle, “the ecosystem of the jungle.”

Texts by Anna Colin, and Vincent Honoré.

Des Savoirs Boulerverses is a publication inscribed in Unsettled Knowledge, a cycle of exhibitions which has explored the propensity for artists to engage with knowledge from fields beyond their own area of specialism. This book and additional instalment concludes the cycle by taking one further step into the relationship between art, knowledge and specialism as observed in the three exibitions. It features the work of artists—Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc, Aurélien Froment, Goldin+Senneby, Louise Hervé & Chloé Maillet, Jochen Lempert, Marie Lund, Benoît Maire, Melvin Moti, Benjamin Seror, Simon Starling, Claudia Triozzi—who wears several hats (scientist, historian, economist, storyteller) and are committed to bridging art and other specialised fields of knowledge. Their practise entails borrowing methodologies from distinct disciplines, infiltrating disparate subject areas and collaborating with agents from further afield in the interests of new forms, new languages, new questionings and new readings.

Giovanna Silva: Libya. Inch by Inch, House by House, Alley by Alley

256 pages /  English / Arabic

11 x 15 cm /  ISBN 9788867490929 / € 20

Giovanna Silva, ed.

Text by Angelo Del Boca and Giovanna Silva

The book Libya: Inch by Inch, House by House, Alley by Alley is part of a series of publications about nations at war, or in crisis; conceived by Giovanna Silva, they tell the stories of different countries through photographs of their multifaceted landscapes. In the case of Libya, Silva has attempted to outline the architectural structures built by Muammar al-Gaddafi’s regime that were demolished during the recent revolution. Her journey started from Benghazi—the first epicenter of the revolt, as a city that had always been hostile to Colonel Gaddafi—and culminated in Tripoli, inside the bunker-barrack of Gaddafi’s residence. In this construction and de-construction of Gaddafi’s personality, Silva creates a parallel narrative relying on archival pictures she has collected over the years, depicting everything from a young Gaddafi surrounded by the politicians he did business with for years (who would later turn their backs on him), to images of his death, when he lay bleeding and knocked to the ground just like the architecture that embodied his ideals. The publication includes a conversation between Giovanna Silva and Gaddafi biographer Angelo Del Boca, who knew, inside out, just who the real Gaddafi was.
