Libera_Laczniczka

EDITIONSHOW exhibition is inspired entirely by what is often described as a “side-​production” of a regular artistic prac­tice – it groups together artists’ editions, ephemera and smal­ler produc­tions for which it is always more dif­ficult to find the place and time for promotion. Smaller produc­tions and editions are often capable of integrating delicacy and irony in their execution; this show wants to not only high­light the impor­tance of this aspect, but also welcome the possibility for a youn­ger and bigger public to col­lect art.

 

Raster gal­lery (Warsaw) is one of the pioneers of the Polish art editions market. Raster’s aim is to present con­tem­porary art in a broader con­text, con­tributing to its under­stan­ding and paving a way for buil­ding home libraries and col­lec­tions in Poland. For over ten years the gal­lery has cooperated with accom­plished artists from Poland and abroad, across generations such as Michał Budny, Rafał Buj­now­ski, Aneta Grzeszykow­ska, Wil­helm Sasnal and Zbigniew Libera – whose works are now also available as limited edition series.

 

Raster will present editions by Oskar Dawicki, Aneta Grzeszykow­ska, Zbigniew Libera, Slavs and Tatars and Karol Radziszew­ski. Special atten­tion should be paid to the selec­tion of Libera’s editions, especially The Mes­sen­ger Girl – a hand-​crafted port­folio con­taining 12 duotone prints on cotton paper depic­ting fic­titious charac­ters. Libera incor­porated the figures and faces of twen­tieth cen­tury movie stars into the scenery of the Warsaw Uprising – scenes originally featured in the book What is the Mes­sen­ger Girl Doing.

 

Chert gal­lery (Berlin) has been producing dif­ferent editions and publications over the course of the past five years; ran­ging from prints, col­lages and neons to small instal­lations, objects and mixed media. These will be presen­ted together with our publications. The books are prin­ted in many dif­ferent ways, from photocopies or risograph, to digital or offset. On occasion of this show, each of the artists represen­ted by Chert gal­lery will present one or more editions, and a small table will be dedicated to the publications produced or coproduced by the gal­lery so far.

 

Motto (Berlin) will present a range of editions by Kasper Andreasen, Sara Mac­Kil­lop, Jonathan Monk and Erik Stein­brecher, which are among several produced for presen­tations at the bookshop.
