Title: Els Vanden Meersch : Transient Constructions - Selection Photographical Archive 1996-2003
Description: Landschap & portret vzw/ FLAC. 2003, First Edition. Soft Cover. Artists' Book, Fine. Text: Dutch / English. Unp.; ill.; 17 x 23 cm; 305 g. " Parallel to her archetectural installations, Els Vanden Meersch has made a few thousand photographs during the past six years. The photos are straightforeward shots of architectural elements such as doors, corridors, blinded walls and mirrors. The book "Transient constructions" is a selection of about one hundred photo's taken from this unstructured archive. By their lay-out and reciprocal relation, these images acquire an unusual character. The collection takes you for a stroll in a supposed city, in which every door, each window or ending of a corridor could mean an unexpected encounter with something or someone who keeps outside of the frame. These photographs tell us something about the gaze and the impossible to see. As a phographical archive, one can consider the book as a poetic essay on visual memory being associative and constructive." (Stefan Siffer) The book contains texts by Isabelle Lemaître dealing the gaze and the impossible to see in the photos of Els vanden Meersch. Stefan Siffer writes about the structure of the photographical archive as a visual memory. Ruth Renders takes an interview with the artist. Fine copy. (ISBN: 9077534016)
