Editions of the CEC
Curators : Harry Burke and Marlie Mul
Presentation of the zine ground – first edition launched in 2018 – edited by Harry Burke (writer, critic, editor, and indepndant curator) amd Marlie Mul (artist, born in 1980 in Utrecht, lives and works in Berlin) with contributions by The Gate, Linda Stupart, Jean-Michel Wicker, Khairani Barokka, Reader’s Digestion, Sorryyoufeeluncomfortable et Marlie Mul.
“In collaboration with Centre d’edition contemporaine for artgenève, Harry Burke and Marlie Mul, the editors of ground, will curate a selection of prints and editions by artists featured in both their recently published first zine and in their forthcoming second publication. ground is an independently distributed zine that aims to look beyond institutions, in their current form, as the dominant spaces and frameworks in which to present and deal with artistic production, and instead explore grassroots political and aesthetic alternatives. The presentation at artgenève will highlight the ways that artists are using publishing and printmaking to achieve these aims, and will involve work by artists who are often underrepresented in international commercial presentations such as artgenève.” (Harry Burke)

Matthew Lutz-Kinoy’s primary medium might be painting, but it often goes beyond two-dimensional space to extend to its surroundings, becoming decor or pieces of furniture. This expansion of the pictorial space is seen both in the choice of subjects and in the enlarged and repeated stylized motifs. His large format paintings, often installed like decorative tapestries, wall panels or suspended ceilings, stages the exhibition space in which viewers are physically immersed. This highly spatial and physical approach to painting expresses Lutz-Kinoy’s special relationship with the body and gesture, and explains the extension of his work into dance and performance. For his recent exhibition at Le Consortium, Dijon, a vast system of murals, inspired by François Boucher’s painted panels that once decorated a boudoir and are now displayed at the Frick Collection in New York, entirely covered the walls of this white cube. This fascination with the refined, sophisticated and carnal painting of the 18th century brought out its erotic and transgressive nature against a backdrop of sensual and sexual liberation.
