APE Library Exhibition

APE (Art Paper Editions) is an independent publishing platform founded in 2010 by Jurgen Maelfeyt of Ghent-based design studio 6’56”. APE focusses on the book as an exhibition space and makes publications in close collaboration with artists, writers, institutions, galleries, and other cultural protagonists. Publications are crafted to the highest standard. Many of the publications are acquired by institutional libraries such as Moma, Centre Pompidou and Macba amongst others.

This summer APE will open the complete library to the public starting from the very first publication. All publications will be shown at the gallery.

2099, Sybren Vanoverberghe

BOOKLAUNCH 22.03.2018
2099, Sybren Vanoverberghe
Check the Facebook event here.

2099 shows images of remembrance linked to Sybren Vanoverberghes perception on the constant evolution of history and its repetitive character. Deconstructed places and manipulated icons function on an associative basis to create a new overview of the present. As a photographer Vanoverberghe is experimenting with what is staged and what is not. He researches how he as a photographer can interfere in the landscape by working on an underlying lyricism in the images. The work can both be seen as a prophecy for the future as well as a desire to the past. Some photographs are taken by chance and close to home, other were chosen to photograph on fixed historical locations and in metropoles.

Black Mountain Conversations, Annelies de Mey

BOOKLAUNCH 29.01.2018
Black Mountain Conversations, Annelies de Mey
Check the Facebook event here.

Launch of the new publication with photographs by Annelies de Mey. A short presentation of “Black Mountain Conversations” will be given by photographer Annelies de Mey in the gallery.
The Black Mountain is the archetype of a mountain that seems unmountable and indestructible because of its steep mountainside. The past and future can have no influence on its power and immortality. Annelies de Mey has respect for the absoluteness of the mountain. She believes in the moment of encounter and waits for the moon, the sun and the snow.

Print On Demand, Manor Grunewald

BOOKLAUNCH 03.02.2017
External Hard Disk, Manor Grunewald
Check the Facebook event here.

Launch of the first monograph of Manor Grunewald, APE#091, External Hard Disk. At 20:00 Manor will have a talk with Thomas Caron about his work. Manor Grunewald focuses on the process of transforming images, whereby the printing process itself, as well as the results achieved with various printing techniques, plays a special role within his compositions, in which order and chaos, the creating, breaking, interrupting and dissolving of structures, are all key elements.
Manor Grunewald considers himself first and foremost as a painter, although he is also active in the fields of sculpture, installation and prints. His work is characterised by the constant analysis of the development of the pictorial in our daily environment. He finds and collects the sources of his images everywhere in daily life: in newspapers, advertising, books, etc. In his recent works, his painting is concerned with the optics, visual conformity, imperfection and arbitrariness of the phenomenon of the black-and-white copy.
