10 years of Posture Editions
One way or another

One way or another is the title of the very first Posture Pockets and the guide to the exhibition of the same name that took place in the S.M.A.K. in Ghent (30.10-28.11.2021). The independent publisher – Posture Editions – was founded in 2011 and has since published 47 artist’s books in A4 format.
In this first issue of this parallel series in novel format, all the Posture artists’ books from the past ten years are presented chronologically and juxtaposed with that artist’s work exhibited at the S.M.A.K.
In addition to the cover and an inside page, the paperback also contains a text fragment from the published essay, poem or interview.

Hans Segers
Images Trouvées

In the book Images Trouvées, Hans Segers collected twenty-nine shapes originally in a long concertina-shaped picture atlas, an archive of icons. Twenty-nine people from the art world in Belgium and France were invited to verbalise an image. As a result, the images in this book are enriched with new layers of meaning.

Femmy Otten
Rainbow Woman

In her work, Dutch artist Femmy Otten explores a very hybrid world of inspiration, ranging from sculptures from Greek antiquity and Italian painters of the quattrocento to American outsider art and contemporary art. She brings all these influences together in a precise yet unfathomable iconography.

Natasja Mabesoone
Bernice Bobs Her Hair

‘Bernice Bobs Her Hair’ is a series of layered soft ground etchings, drawings and monotypes. Starting from the biased idea and normative use of marginalised graphic procedures as a means of reproduction, the idea of repetition is explored. In tandem, Mabesoone recoups visual languages that have habitually been coded as ultra-feminine and trivial. She questions how these ambiguous and subversive aesthetics can gain authority, and destabilise or resist contemporary realities and dominant cultural constructions.

Juan Pablo Plazas
Even if You

Even if You is a book in which all the lines set out by the artist in recent years come together as if they were a crossroads: language, movement, image, sound, humour and melancholy are the instruments with which the Colombian-Belgian artist is working.

‘This is the second time I will do this performance. After the first time, my friend Justine passed by with her family and gave me a beautiful present: one of those signs that mark the rounds of a boxing match. I saw this sign as an echo of the roundness of the performance and as a sign of what it meant to do it again. Some moves will be repeated, other new ones are prepared. See you at the circular stage of The Hisk Affair.’

Pieter Jennes
Gezelligheid op een druilerige dag

Pieter Jennes’ paintings are flat meaning perspectiveless and two dimensional, they are graphically and rudimentally elaborated with roughly sketched, simply presented figures.
Jennes looks back on old and contemporary cultural phenomena and shows us a new, composed story in the form of paintings, sculptures and drawings. Jennes often paints scenes that are reminiscent of folklore or comic theater performances. His Dionysian dancers set up all possible faces. They wear masks of drunkenness, horror, boredom, or shame or apathy.

Hannelore Van Dijck
Een vogel vliegt op
