Jacqueline Mesmaeker

Published by de Vleeshal, Middelburg, 1982, unpaginated (b/w ill.), 21 × 29.7 cm, Dutch, French

Price: €10

Produced on the occasion of Jacqueline Mesmaeker’s exhibition at Vleeshal, Middelburg, 14 – 26 January, 1982.

The work of Jacqueline Mesmaeker is intangible, discreet and captivating. Starting from analytical intentions and experimental protocols linked to perception and representation, her practice remains anchored in a literary and poetic universe, including references to Lewis Carroll, Mallarmé, Melville or Paul Willems. Minimal, sometimes even unnoted, her rare and precise work is nonetheless present. It willingly takes over space, playing with the actual and symbolic architecture, revealing the structures and lines of force, but also the errors, by thwarting their perspectives or correcting them with delicate touches.

La Belle Versaillaise Pierre Klossowski

Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 1982, card (colour ill.), 10.5 × 14.7 cm, English

Price: €8 (Out of stock)

Produced on the occasion of documenta 7, 19 June – 28 September, 1982.

Pierre Klossowski was a French writer, translator and artist. A prolific late in life artist who was internationally acclaimed for his writings and translations on Sadeian erotic expression, Klossowski is a pivotal yet underrepresented figure in the history of 20th-century art, often overshadowed by his earlier literary work and his younger brother, Balthus. Primarily working with pencil and charcoal, the laborious drawings he produced reference a variety of subjects, including Greek mythology, Sadean decadence, medieval fantasy and sexualized scenarios involving a recurring female figure, Roberte. These imagined scenes depict a perplexing and intriguing array of mature, familiar and fantastical situations involving cartoonish human figures set in fictitious landscapes that uniquely relate back to the dystopic realities he creates.
