CATALOGUE - THE ORIGINAL SELFDESTRUCTIVE COPIES - FUNDRAISING FOR CUBA - COVID
This original version of my soldout Catalogue was too fragile for the market. The pages are simply glued together on the spine edge of the block and they will slowly come off over time.... Which is their destiny...
Only 10 different copies available. Only here. Now. Ending 31/10/2020. Half of the proceeds of the sales will go to my friends in Havana strongly affected by the economical and covid crisis.
Photographs and collages: Vincent Delbrouck
Editing and Design: V.D. and Philippe Koeune
free softcover with flaps
21 x 29,7 cm (8,27 x 11,69“)
248 pages / 116 illustrations randomly sequenced

With support of Mulhouse Art Contemporain.
"This random book started with an artist residency in Mulhouse (October 2015) followed by a solo show as part of Mulhouse Biennial of Photography 2016 (France).
It is now the intuitive and flooded river of a working process, with images from a variety of sources (and periods) : c-prints, collages, installations views from exhibitions(BPM, FOAM,...), photocopies, pages from Revisited Cuban book,...
This book is printed on glossy magazine paper (swiss binding), resulting in a publication that is not just documenting the constellations of a working process but becomes part of it, as an experimental "anti-catalogue" reflecting the energy of antipoetry.
Each copy is unique, made of randomly stacked sheets printed only on the recto and numbered with Tarot, all coming with a different and extra overs sheet (overprint) hidden somewhere in the book.
An interview by Zippora Elders at FOAM + a text written by Anne Immelé (curator and director of the Mulhouse Biennial) are also included in the book."
