6-10 February 2013: PrintRoom @ Art Rotterdam

Please join us at our temporary location at Art Rotterdam Projections. We’ve installed a mini PrintRoom at the entrance of the Fotomuseum, Las Palmas building.

We present the first proofs of the linocuts for the next edition of the Lubok Reihe we’re now preparing in collaboration with Christoph Rückhaberle/Lubok Verlag.

Maura Biava produced PrintRoom edition #1 (see text below)

Emilio Macchia (IT/NL)  and BlisterZine (IT) will join us on Saturday afternoon at 3 for book presentations

And of course we bring a big selection of books by Lubok Verlag (DE), BlisterZine (IT), Zavod P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. (SL), J+L books (US), Edition Taube (DE), Rollo Press (CH), Occasional Papers (UK), Onomatopee (NL), Post Editions (NL), NERO (IT), Fukt Magazine (DE), The Eriskay Connection (NL), Printed Matter (US), The Ice Plant (US), Temporary Services (US) and many more!

Freek Lomme from Onomatopee brings  new books from the L.A. art book fair on saturday. We made a special order and he selected some surprise items for us.

For this occasion we invited Maura Biava to make an edition on our risograph stencilmachines. Maura made a new work based on the seven trinity series, in which she transforms  two basic mathematical shapes into one three dimensional model.

Maura Biava:
For my project “Trinity” I created an ” alphabet” of mathematical formulas that have a geometrical representation and give life to a bi-dimensional figure. The “index” is composed of some of the most classical and best-known formulas that were created by many European mathematicians from the 17th to the 19th century such as Newton, Pascal, Cartesio, Bernoulli, etc. I gave each maths formula the name of an abstract meaning that suits it according to me and to our culture. As an example I used the “exponential” number, which multiplies always by itself: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, etc.

I named the “exponential” number “flight”, because it looks like a point that flies away. With the help of a maths programme for computers and maths expert Annamaria Ricotti, I combined different 2-dimension maths formulas obtaining maths formulas that have a 3-dimension representation.
