ERIC DUYCKAERTS – Belgian Pavilion – Venice 2007 :

In 2007, the artist representing the Belgian pavilion at the Venice Biennale 52nd International Art Exhibition was Éric Duyckaerts. Since the mid-80s, this Belgian artist has developed a body of work blending performance and video, and more recently objects and installations, to flesh out his conferences. The artist offers demonstrations that lead to hare-brained and illogical conclusions, the whole of it shored up by apparently meticulous research and an abundance of references. His interest lies more in analyzing the figure of the educator and its symbolism than in the conclusions drawn by his demonstrations.

This catalogue, published for the Venice Biennale, chronicles the artist’s trajectory and presents his major works. It also acquaints the reader with the performance entitled “Palais des glaces et de la découverte”, the work created especially for the Belgian pavilion.

Éric Duyckaerts has joined forces with graphic art duo M/M Paris, Michaël Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak. Besides the catalogue, the Parisian graphic artists have also designed special PR materials for the project, all under the auspices of the Belgian pavilion commissioner, Christine Macel. The catalogue includes numerous illustrations and critical texts by Christine Macel (Contemporary Art Curator, Centre Pompidou, Paris) and Jacques Dubois (Philosoph, Brussel), as well as a long interview conducted by critic Hans Ulrich Obrist (Co-director Serpentine Gallery, London).


In the framework of his research in contemporary art and architecture, architect Philippe Chiambaretta/PCA has been led to reflect upon the communicating functions of a façade for the Centre de Création Contemporaine (CCC) in the city of Tours (France). Designed to be a process that generates an irrational, virtual shape, the CCC façade calls out to the city, offering visitors multiple viewpoints that waves between optical and physical effects. The same process was used in a demolition/reconstruction project at La Défense (Paris’ business district). An example of theoretical research made concrete on a large scale.

LUCAS LENGLET – Lucas Lenglet

Edited for his first exhibition in France at Palais de Tokyo, Paris, Lucas Lenglet’s book goes further than the exhibition in showing forgotten spaces like staircases. Designed and thought as an artist book, this book is a limited edition of 500 copies.
